Perhaps live in Newtongrange and have sustained injuries in an accident that was not your fault. If so, you may be considering making a compensation claim Newtongrange. Of course, making a compensation claim in Newtongrange is just the same procedure as making a personal injury compensation claim anywhere else in the country.
Compensation Claim in Newtongrange
There are several reasons for making a compensation claim in Newtongrange. Here are some of them:-
1 You may have been in an accident for which you were not to blame and sustained an injury or injuries in it.
2 You might have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease.
3 You may have suffered an illness that was caused by someone else’s negligence, such as food poisoning.
You have to lodge a personal injury compensation claim within three years of your accident or within three years of first being told by a doctor that you have a work-related disease or an occupational disease.
Accidents at Work
If you have an accident at work which was not your fault, you can make a personal injury compensation claim if the accident was recorded in the accident book at your workplace and reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). You can inform the HSE about your accident if you think your employer will not do so. You need to seek immediate medical treatment as sometimes an injury will be aggravated if you do not receive it. This will weaken your potential claim.
You will also need to be able (with your solicitor) to prove that the accident was caused by negligence on the part of your employer. For example he or she may not have carried out a risk assessment before you started a new job, and an accident occurred which could have been avoided if one had been carried out.
