You may have stayed in Llanberis when you were on holiday exploring Snowdonia, or perhaps you are lucky enough to live there permanently. It is a great place to be, even in the winter when you may be able to do some skiing. However, accidents can occur everywhere and Llanberis is no exception.
If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Llanberis. Usually you have three years in which to make a claim for injuries sustained in an accident which took place anywhere in the UK. However, if you were injured during a crime, this would be only two years.
Exceptions to this three-year rule include accidents which occurred at sea, in the air and at an airport. These are governed by international conventions and you have only two years in which to make a claim for injuries caused in these circumstances.
Injury claim in Llanberis
You may have an illness which you can prove was caused by the negligence of another person. If this is the case, you can make an injury claim in Llanberis or elsewhere. You have three years from first being diagnosed with an illness of this kind in which to file an injury claim in Llanberis, for example.
Who may have caused the illness of another?
A person who is negligent is one who has a duty to safeguard another person or group of people. If a person deemed responsible for other people is found to have breached the rules of duty, and has caused injury or harm to another person, then the injured person can make a personal injury compensation claim for the harm suffered.
Responsible people who have a duty to protect the wellbeing and safety of others include healthcare professionals, owners of premises frequented by the public, employers and local authorities who are responsible for the maintenance of roads and streets.
For example, if kitchen staff in a restaurant do not prepare food properly and you have food poisoning as a result, you can make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the restaurant, who has the ultimate responsibility for the protection of customers.
