Why would I need expert injury solicitors in Minto?
Apart from being able to claim for injuries sustained in an accident for which another person was to blame, when you would need the help of an injury solicitor, you can also claim if you have an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. This may at first seem a curious concept, but there are several examples of such illnesses. For example, you may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, in which case you could probably make a case to prove that your illness was the result of your employer’s negligence.
You may also have had food poisoning after eating out, in which case you may be able to prove that the negligence of the kitchen staff had caused your illness.
If you are a tenant living in rented property, have repeatedly asked your landlord to do much needed repairs because of damp, for instance, and are diagnosed with a respiratory disease because of your living conditions, then you may be able to prove your illness was caused as a result of your landlord’s negligence.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If you were injured in an accident that happened within the British Isles, you usually have three years in which to file your personal injury compensation claim. However, if you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at an airport, then you only have two years in which to make a claim.
If you were the victim of a violent crime, you also only have two years in which to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, or the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme if your injury occurred there.
If you have been diagnosed with an illness for which you can prove another person was responsible, then you have three years in which to file a claim.
