If you need an experienced lawyer in Melton because you have been injured in an accident, you should bear in mind that you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault, but that someone else was to blame for it. You would need to discuss your grounds for making a claim to find out if you are eligible to file one. You will need to locate a lawyer who has the experience you need to help you. Not all accident lawyers can deal with all types of injury claims, as they each tend to handle claims arising from specific types of accident, perhaps accidents in public places, or accidents at work, to give just some examples.
If you have been diagnosed with an illness that developed as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to start your claim for compensation.
Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
Examples of illnesses that can be caused by someone else’s negligence are work-related ones, which may have been caused because of an employer’s negligence, or food poisoning, either after having a meal out, or after eating a product that was contaminated by bacteria, or perhaps, if you are a tenant living in damp conditions, respiratory problems caused because your landlord had not done the necessary repairs to make the property habitable.
To file such a claim, you would need your medical report with your doctor’s prognosis detailing when you might fully recover from the illness. You have three years from the date you were diagnosed to make a claim.
