People aren’t always aware of what they can make a personal injury claim in Barnet for. Some might be surprised by just how extensive the list is. Many believe they can only claim for car crashes or accidents at work, but at Accident Advice Helpline we successfully fight the corner of people claiming for a wide variety of things.
Accidents at work
The modern workplace is safer than ever, and all employers in the UK have a legal responsibility to ensure their employees have a safe environment in which to work. Failure to adhere to the regulations set out by the Heath and Safety Act can land them in a lot of trouble if someone is injured and they find themselves facing a personal injury claim in Barnet.
While industrial illnesses are often workplace claims as well, the regulations surrounding them are different. The biggest difference is the rule relating to the three-year claim period. As many industrial diseases can take years or even decades to develop, the three-year period starts from when the victim becomes aware of the illness, or a diagnosis is made.
Road traffic accidents
Despite the best efforts of the police and many motoring organisations, there are still far too many road traffic accidents on our roads, despite the fact that modern cars do have much more advanced safety features, making the likelihood of a serious injury or fatality far lower.
If you’ve eaten in a restaurant or had any food that has led to a bout of food poisoning, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Barnet. Food poisoning claims can be crucial, because they can bring to light bad practices or bad goods which could have gone on to affect many more people.
If an animal has attacked you due to the owner’s negligence, and that animal injured you enough for you to require medical treatment, then you might be entitled to make a personal injury in Barnet.
If someone in the medical profession has been negligent while dealing with you or a loved one, then the results can be catastrophic. Often when someone is negligent it might not be an isolated case, and making your claim could help bring it to the attention of the right people who can help to protect other patients.
