Injury claim in Hurley
Did you know that you can make an injury claim in Hurley for example, for injuries suffered in an accident that was not your fault? You can also claim for any illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. This may be an occupational disease for which your employer was to blame because he or she did not provide you with a safe, healthy environment in which to work. You can also claim for an illness such as food poisoning which you may have got after eating at a local restaurant. The food may have not been cooked at the correct temperature, or the salad greens may not have been prepared well. The negligence of the kitchen staff made you ill, so you can make an injury claim in Hurley against the restaurant owner.
You generally have three years in which to file an injury claim in Hurley, or elsewhere in the British Isles. However you have to file some types of claims within two years of an accident, so you should check the time frame with an accident solicitor or us at Accident Advice Helpline.
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness it could be that it was a result of your employer’s negligence. He or she may not have ensured you had adequate protection to do your job, or perhaps you did not have sufficient training to do it. For example, if you developed Vibration White Finger (VWF) you may not have been provided with the appropriate protective gloves, or you may not have been instructed in how to use high-powered machinery, and were not given breaks from using it.
However, if your employer had provided you with adequate training, but you chose to ignore it, you would not have grounds on which to base an injury claim in Hurley. The same would be true if you had been provided with the appropriate gloves, but you didn’t wear them.
