    Injury Claim in Littlestone


    You may live in Littlestone and be contemplating making an injury claim in Littlestone because you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You can also make an injury claim in Littlestone if you have been diagnosed with an illness and you can prove that someone else’s negligence was to blame for it.

    Making an injury claim in Littlestone

    If you have been injured in an accident for which another person was to blame, you usually have three years in which to file a claim. However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to file an injury claim in Littlestone or one based wherever you live in the UK. Accidents at sea, in the air and at airports are examples of those for which you must make a claim within two years.

    Illnesses caused by other people’s negligence

    If you are a tenant and are living in damp conditions, then you may have been diagnosed with respiratory problems. If you have asked your landlord to do repairs to your accommodation several times and he or she has not carried out those repairs, then you may have grounds on which to make a personal injury compensation claim against him or her.

    You would need to find an injury lawyer who specializes in such cases and he or she would write to your landlord informing him or her that you are claiming personal injury compensation from them for your illness. It is possible that you could also get a rent rebate because of your living conditions, especially if one of the rooms had become uninhabitable. The landlord would usually be given ninety days in which to respond, but if your case was urgent and your health could deteriorate further, he or she would be asked to reply sooner.

    You can also make an injury claim in Littlestone, for example for food poisoning if you had to have medical treatment after having a meal in a restaurant. You could probably prove that your illness was caused because the kitchen staff had been negligent in their duties. For examples, leafy green salad vegetables may not have been thoroughly washed, or meat, fish and poultry may not have been cooked at the correct temperature.
