You may live close to Loch Rannoch, perhaps in the small village of Kinloch Rannoch at the eastern end of this nine-miles-long loch, which is a freshwater one. If you do and you have been the innocent victim of an accident, you may be considering making an injury claim. You usually have three years in which to file a claim, although in some cases you only have two. If you are uncertain about the length of time you have from the date of your accident to file a claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline for that, and other information.
Injury claim in Loch Rannoch
You can also make an injury claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness and you can prove that it was caused by the negligence of another person. This could be MRSA contracted whilst in hospital undergoing surgery, or food poisoning after eating out, or even a work-related illness for which you can prove your employer was to blame.
You have three years to file an injury claim in Loch Rannoch (or elsewhere) for this type of personal injury compensation claim.
Illness caused by negligence of a landlord
If you are living as a tenant, you might be living in sub-standard accommodation. If the accommodation is in need of repair and is damp, for example, your health could be at risk. If you have repeatedly asked your landlord to do much-needed maintenance to the property you are living in and this has not been done, you might have developed respiratory problems. If this is the case, you should visit a personal injury solicitor and explain the problem. You will need to give him or her your medical report so that he or she can see what the problem is. You have three years from the date of being first diagnosed with the illness in which to lodge a claim.
You solicitor will write a letter to your landlord, explaining that you are filing a personal injury compensation claim against him or her. The landlord will be given ninety days or less in which to respond. If your health is deteriorating rapidly, the period given for a response will be less.
You can also claim a rebate on past rent if you have been unable to use a room in your accommodation because of its state of repair.
If you need help to find a personal injury solicitor to represent you, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
