    Expert injury solicitors in Kirkby in Ashfield

    You may need a firm of expert injury solicitors in Kirkby in Ashfield to help you file a personal injury compensation claim because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. If the accident happened within the last two or three years, depending on the accident and where it occurred, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    If the accident happened at sea, in the air or at an airport, you will only have two years in which to make your injury claim. However, usually you have three years in which to file a claim if the accident occurred in the UK.

    Illnesses resulting from another person’s negligence

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury solicitors in Kirkby-in-Ashfield can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you have three years from the first diagnosis in which to file a claim. Examples are work-related illnesses and food poisoning after eating out, although there are many others too.

    Agricultural illnesses

    If you work on a farm, you may have to work with hazardous substances such as pesticides, fertilisers and so on. If you have not been issued with appropriate protective clothing and breathing apparatus, you may become ill. Employers have a responsibility to protect employees’ health and safety, and failure to do this can result in personal injury compensation claims against them. You should be fully protected in accordance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations.

    If you work with poultry you may be adversely affected by dust in the poultry sheds, dander, feathers, bedding materials and so on. Farmer’s lung is a recognised occupational disease which is caused by working in dusty conditions, including in granaries. You may also be susceptible to diseases which can be contracted from animals such as leptospirosis and cryptosporidium, and your employer has a duty to protect you as far as possible from these.
