    Expert legal advice in Kirkby

    You may be a resident of Kirby and perhaps you took part in the Rent Strike which took place over a fourteen month period between 1972 and 73. This was because of rent rises and the poor housing conditions many tenants in Kirby lived in. Did you know that if you become ill, now, because of the poor housing conditions you live in, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your landlord? Read on for expert legal advice in Kirkby.

    Expert legal advice in Kirkby

    There are several reasons for seeking out expert legal advice in Kirkby or ones based elsewhere in the UK. You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence, or you may have been involved in an accident which you can prove was not your fault.

    You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although in some cases you only have two years in which to make your claim from the date of your accident. However, the sooner you begin your claim the better for several reasons.

    1 The details of an accident will be clearer in your mind if you file a claim as soon as you possibly can after it.

    2 You may have to wait for years to be awarded compensation if the case has to go before a court.

    3 You may suffer financial hardship if you have to wait for compensation.

    Some illnesses caused by negligence

    As mentioned above, if you are a tenant, living in poor housing conditions and you become ill because of them, you could consult a firm of injury solicitors Kirkby or ones based anywhere else in the UK, to find out if you have good grounds upon which to build a personal injury compensation claim. For example you may live in damp conditions and you have repeatedly asked your landlord to fix the problem. If this has not been done and you have been diagnosed with a respiratory disease, then you may be able to make a claim.

    You may also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have had food poisoning after eating out. You would have to prove, along with your injury solicitors Kirkby or elsewhere, that your illness was caused by the negligence of the kitchen staff in the preparation of cooking of the meal.

    If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness you and your injury solicitor may be able to prove that it was the result of your employer’s negligence.
