Injury Claim in Littleborough



You may, at this moment, be thinking about making an injury claim in Littleborough. This might be because you sustained injuries in an accident for which you were not to blame. Hopefully you will fully recover, but you can claim personal injury compensation for the injuries if you can prove the accident was not your fault. You usually have three years in which to file an injury claim in Littleborough, or one based elsewhere in the UK. However, there are some instances when accidents occur in the air, at sea or at an airport, for example, when you only have two years in which to make your claim. If you are unsure about how long you have in which to make your claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.

Injury claim in Littleborough

Apart from claims for injuries sustained in accidents, you could also file an injury claim in Littleborough if you have been diagnosed with an illness in the last three years (that’s how long you have to file an injury claim in Littleborough or elsewhere). You must be able to prove that your illness was the result of another person’s negligence. It might be a work-related illness, MRSA, food poisoning and so on.

Food poisoning

It is estimated that around 600,000 people in the UK become ill with food poisoning every year. The most common cause of this is the campylobacter bacterium. Approximately 180 people are hospitalised every year in Britain and 140 die from symptoms arising from food poisoning. Figures released by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) show that the number of cases has been  rising every year since 2009.

Chickens carry campylobacter and despite measures that have been taken to stop the spread of infection among chickens on farms, these have not had the desired results. Apparently around two-thirds of all fresh chicken on supermarket shelves are contaminated with it.

There is no risk to health if the chicken is cooked properly and there has been no cross-contamination before cooking the bird. Always wash your hands after handling a chicken and keep vegetables and so on away from raw chicken.

There are other strains of bacteria which are found in the human food chain with the most common one being salmonella. Norovirus has been linked to oysters, so perhaps it is no longer a great idea to eat them raw. Listeria is mainly associated with soft unpasteurised cheese and then there is also E.coli.
