If you’ve been injured at home in Sheffield, you may think that you wouldn’t be entitled to compensation as your injury did not occur in a public place. This is not the case however, as even if you are injured at home in Sheffield, the injury could still have been somebody else’s fault. It is in this circumstance that a compensation claim is possible.
For instance, if you are injured at home in Sheffield due to a product which you bought in good faith but was faulty or did not behave as expected, and this was what caused your injury, then the manufacturer or retailer of the product was to blame and you could claim compensation.
When and why Is compensation available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This process does not exist to punish people who cause injury, but instead to provide victims with financial recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that result from the their ailment.
How long do you have to claim?
In the majority of personal injury compensation cases you have a period of three years from the incident in question in which to begin claims proceedings, and after this time has elapsed you can no longer embark upon a claim. There are two types of claim which are not subject to this three-year rule, however, and these are claims regarding an injury to a minor and claims that deal with industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
