Injury lawyers in Glentrool Village
To make a personal injury compensation claim you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was definitely not your fault. You have three years, generally, in which to file a claim. However there are some accidents, for example, those that happen at sea, in the air or at airports, which are governed by international conventions, and you only have two years in which to file a claim. You should check how long you have to file your particular claim with injury lawyers in Glentrool Village, or ones based elsewhere in the UK. You can also contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for that information and any other regarding a potential personal injury compensation claim.
Personal injury claims for illness
You can also make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness if you and your firm of injury lawyers in Glentrool Village, for example, can prove that it was caused by another person’s negligence. You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease and if that is the case, you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. Employers have a duty to take care of their workers’ health and safety, so failure to do this is deemed to be negligence.
You may have had food poisoning after eating out and if you have received medical treatment for it and reported your case to the local Public Health and Hygiene department, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation against the owner of the restaurant where you ate the contaminated food. You would need the receipt from the restaurant in order to prove that you ate there.
You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with your illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
