    Compensation claim in Newton Mearns


    Do you live in Newton Mearns? Are you thinking about making a compensation claim? Making a compensation claim in Newton Mearns needn’t be difficult if you let Accident Advice Helpline take on your claim.

    There are some criteria for making any compensation claim in Newton Mearns or elsewhere, one of the most important is that you, along with your solicitor, have to prove, is that your accident or illness was caused by somebody else’s negligence. You have three years after an accident or first diagnosis of a work-related illness in which to file a compensation claim in Newton Mearns.

    Making a compensation claim in Newton Mearns

    You can make a compensation claim in Newton Mearns (or anywhere else in the UK) for any injury you sustained in an accident that was not your fault, in the last three years. The sooner you make the claim the better for you, however, as some cases can drag on for years, especially if they are complicated ones, such as medical negligence cases, for which a lot of research has to be done.

    You can claim for a work-related illness or an occupational disease, and if you do so, you and your solicitor will be obliged to prove that your illness was caused by negligence on the part of your employer.

    You can also claim for an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. This might be MRSA, a bacterial infection which you may have contracted during a stay in hospital (it is one of the so-called Superbugs), or food poisoning which you got after eating out or buying a contaminated product (if the latter was the case, then you need to keep the wrapping so that it can be analysed by your local Public Health department.)

    Accidents abroad

    If you booked a package holiday through a UK-based travel agent or holiday firm, then you may be able to make a compensation claim in Newton Mearns for any illness or accident that can be proven to have been caused either by the travel agent or one of his or her representatives, such as the owner of the hotel where you stayed. For example, if you tripped over uneven paving in the hotel grounds and broke a limb, you may have a case for filing a compensation claim against the hotel owner or the travel agent. If your accident was caused by a person other than a representative of the travel agent (such as a local fisherman or a shop owner) then you can make a compensation claim which would be governed by the laws of the country in which you had your accident.
