You may have been using Penrith as a base for exploring the Lake District, or you may live and work there, but for one reason or another, you might be thinking about making a compensation claim in Penrith because of an accident or illness you have had there.
Reasons for making a compensation claim in Penrith
You can make a compensation claim in Penrith, or one based elsewhere, for several reasons
- You may have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours.
- You may have suffered from an illness that was caused by another person’s negligence. Food poisoning after eating out, Legionnaire’s Disease, or the bacterial infection MRSA are all examples of such illnesses.
- You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease and you could be thinking about making a compensation claim in Penrith against your employer.
For most compensation claim cases you need to file your personal injury compensation claim within three years either of the date of your accident or of the first diagnosis of your illness.
You can also claim for injuries sustained in a criminal assault if you can prove you did nothing to provoke the attack. Also you can claim for injuries sustained in a hit-and-run accident and for injuries suffered in an accident in which the driver responsible for the accident was an uninsured driver.
