You may have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours and be thinking about claiming compensation in Houghton-le-Spring, or one based elsewhere in the UK. You can also make an injury claim, for example, for an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. This might be a work-related illness or an occupational disease which you contracted because you were working in an unsafe or unhealthy environment. As employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of their workers, you can make an injury claim in Houghton-le-Spring, for instance against them. The money they may have to pay in compensation should be covered by their public liability insurance, and won’t come out of their own pockets.
Claiming compensation in Houghton-le-Spring
It might interest you to know that you can also claim for illnesses such as food poisoning, if you had it after eating out or eating a contaminated product. If you have kept the receipt for the meal, or product and have received medical treatment, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Houghton-le-Spring. You may have contracted MRSA (the bacteria which has become known as a superbug) after a stay in hospital, or in a residential care home, or Legionnaire’s disease from the water or air-conditioning system in a foreign hotel; in all these cases you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
If you had food poisoning after eating a contaminated product, you should keep the packaging so that it can be analysed to discover which bacteria were present. You or your doctor should inform the local Public Health and Hygiene department so that an epidemic of food poisoning in your area can be prevented.
