Injury compensation lawyers in Langford
You could be looking for injury compensation lawyers in Langford or elsewhere, because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident within the UK, whether on the mainland or the islands.
However there are certain accidents for which you must file a claim for injuries within two years. These include:-
- Accidents at sea
- Accidents in the air and
- Accidents at most airports in the world (whose governments have signed the Montreal Convention).
Personal injury claims for illnesses
You may also be seeking out the services of injury lawyers in Langford or ones based elsewhere in the country if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of someone else’s negligence. Examples of such an illness are work-related ones such as repetitive strain injury or vibration white finger, which you and your injury lawyers in Langford, for example, could prove were caused by your employer’s negligence.
If you are a tenant living in rented accommodation, and you home is in a poor state of repair, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation from your landlord if your living conditions have made you ill. For example, if you live in damp rooms, you may have been diagnosed with asthma or another respiratory illness. You could, if you have repeatedly asked your landlord to do much-needed repairs and he or she has not had them carried out, claim personal injury compensation for your illness.
If you contracted food poisoning after have a meal at a restaurant, you could also claim personal injury compensation from the restaurant owner as you could probably prove negligence on the part of the catering staff was to blame.
There are other illnesses which could fall into this category too.
