Injured in Kirkby Stephen
Another reason for seeking injury solicitors in Kirkby Stephen or others based elsewhere in the UK is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. It could be that you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, and you, along with your injury solicitors in Kirkby Stephen, for example, can prove that it was caused as a result of negligence on the part of your employer.
You have three years from first being diagnosed with such an illness to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Accidents in public places
If you have an accident in a shop, bank, cinema, restaurant or anywhere else that is open to the public, then you may be able to make a claim against the owner of the premises if you can prove that the accident was not your fault, but perhaps the fault of another person’s negligence.
You may have slipped on a wet floor in a shop or supermarket, and if there were no warning signs in place alerting you to the possible danger, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim. You would need to inform a member of staff of your accident and they would have to log the details in the accident book.
You should receive medical treatment as soon as possible and take photos with your mobile phone of the scene of the accident. These may be useful supporting evidence for your claim. The names and contact details of any witnesses should also be recorded in the accident book.
