If you live in Humbie and have been injured in an accident that was the fault of another person in the last three years, you may want to make a compensation claim in Humbie. You can also make an injury claim in Humbie or one from anywhere else in the UK if you have been diagnosed with an illness which was caused by another person’s negligence. Examples of illnesses such as these are work-related ones or occupational diseases, as well as MRSA (caused by the so-called superbug) which you may have picked up while in hospital or while in a residential care home. You can also claim for food poisoning if you got it after eating out at a restaurant either in the UK or while on a holiday abroad if you got it in the hotel restaurant where you were staying, and had booked a package holiday with a UK tour operator.
Need to make a compensation claim in Humbie?
To make any type of compensation claim in Humbie, you will need to hire an accident solicitor who has the expertise you need to win the maximum amount of compensation you could get for your injury or illness. If you had an accident in a public place, then you would need a solicitor who specialised in handling an injury compensation claim in Humbie or elsewhere in the UK for such accidents.
Illnesses while abroad
You need to take care and not drink tap water or have ice in your drinks in some foreign countries. Giardiasis is a stomach bug which is characterised by recurring diarrhoea, which is severe, and also fatigue. You can even get it from swimming in infected water, in lakes and rivers and so on. You may have holidayed in Africa, parts of Turkey or one of the former Eastern bloc countries and picked this bug up. The parasites will develop in your intestines for a while before you have the worst symptoms. Antiprotozoals can cure this condition, but you should tell your doctor that you have been on holiday abroad so that giardiasis can be diagnosed.
If you booked a package holiday through a UK tour operator, and stayed in a resort hotel, not leaving it for the duration of your stay, then you could be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your illness against the tour operator. It is likely that others who stayed at the same resort also came down with giardiasis too, so a joint claim could be filed.
