You may have visited Penryn while on holiday and perhaps while you were there you had an accident in which you suffered an injury. You may live and work in the Penryn and Falmouth area and be contemplating making a compensation claim in Penryn because you have just been informed that you have a work-related illness. If you are thinking of making a compensation claim in Penryn then you may be in need of advice about how to go about making such a claim.
Criteria for making a compensation claim in Penryn
If you are thinking of making a compensation claim in Penryn, here are some points to consider.
The accident in which you suffered your injury should not have been your fault in any way. You may need to prove that another person’s negligence was the cause of the accident.
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, then you and your accident solicitor must be able to make a case to prove that your medical condition is a result of negligence on the part of your employer, who has a responsibility for the health and safety of his or her employees while they are working.
If you have had an illness caused because of someone else’s negligence, this will have to be proved if you are to make a successful personal injury compensation claim.
Personal injury compensation claims must be filed within 3 years’ of the date of the accident in which you received your injury or within 3 years’ of your first being diagnosed with a work-related medical condition.
For some accidents you have only 2 years’ in which to file a personal injury compensation claim and you should check with your solicitor about the limitation period for your particular accident.
