You could be looking for those illusive injury solicitors in Hemingford Abbots if you were thinking of filing a personal injury compensation claim for an illness you contracted which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. You might think that there can be no such illnesses, but you would be wrong.
Illnesses and negligence
If, for example, you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. If he or she has not trained you to do a job correctly, for example, to manually lift heavy objects and then you are asked to do this, but damage your back, then you could claim compensation for this injury.
If your employer failed in his or her duty to provide you with the appropriate protective gear, perhaps ear mufflers, so that you were safe from high levels of noise, then you could also make a claim against him or her if you became fully or partially deaf.
If the protective gear was defective in some way, you could perhaps file a claim against the manufacturers.
On the other hand, if you did not use the protective gear your employer provided, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for any damage to your health.
You may have got food poisoning after eating at a restaurant and you can also claim personal injury compensation for this. You would have to keep the receipt for the meal, and receive medical treatment. You or your doctor should also inform the local Public Health department of your illness so that the cause can be investigated. This should also prevent further cases of this illness. You and your injury lawyer must be able to show that your illness was caused by the negligence of the catering staff who had either not prepared or cooked the food properly.
