If you are looking for a personal injury firm you might have had an accident in Hillingdon which was no fault of yours, or perhaps you have a work-related illness. With any accident or work-related illness you need to demonstrate that it was no fault of your own.
For example, with a work-related illness, or accident, if your employer gave you the protective gear you needed while doing your job, and you didn’t wear them, you would not have a claim for injury compensation, as the employer had fulfilled his/her requirements as regards the Health and Safety at Work regulations. However if you did wear the protective clothing you were provided with and it did not offer you the appropriate level of protection, then you could probably make a claim for compensation.
Details a lawyer will need if you had an accident in Hillingdon
When you contact an accident solicitor, you will need to have all the details regarding your accident or illness. The date and time of the accident is important and you should have logged the accident in the appropriate book, whether it occurred at work or on private property – for example, in a supermarket or shop.
You should also be able to provide your solicitor with details about your accident, such as names, addresses and perhaps contact numbers for any witnesses. You would also need to give details of the medical treatment you received as a result of the accident. In the case of a work-related illness, you would need to have the date when you were first diagnosed with the illness and of subsequent treatment. All these details help your compensation claim case. You have to begin your claim for compensation within three years of your accident or the first diagnosis of your illness.
