Perhaps you live in Hanley and have had an accident which was not your fault. If you were injured and received medical treatment, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you and your injury lawyers in Hanley can prove the accident was the fault of another person. You usually have three years in which to file an injury claim, although you have only two years to do so if you were injured in an accident on board an aircraft, a ship or boat, or at an airport. You also have just two years in which to file a claim for injuries suffered in the course of a crime. You need to check how long you have to make your claim with injury lawyers in Hanley (or injury lawyers anywhere else in the British Isles). If you would prefer, you can call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers to get this information and much more.
Injury lawyers in Hanley
If you have been diagnosed with an occupational disease or a work-related illness within the last three years, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer if you and your injury lawyers in Hanley or elsewhere, can build a case, proving that your illness was caused by your employer’s negligence. You may not realise it, but you can make an injury claim for any illness which you can prove you contracted as a result of another person’s negligence. For example you may have been infected with the so-called Superbug, MRSA, while in hospital or in a residential care home. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline or injury lawyers in Hanley or elsewhere to find out if you have grounds on which to base a claim.
MRSA, or more precisely meticillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, is a bacterial infection which cannot be treated with traditional antibiotics as it has evolved to become resistant to them. Luckily incidences of MRSA are becoming less prevalent than they were a few years ago as hospital staff and others are more aware of hygiene and ways of preventing the transference of these bacteria. Nowadays when a patient is admitted to hospital they are screened for MRSA so that there is less likelihood of it spreading through the hospital. Despite this, however, there are some unfortunate cases of MRSA both in hospital settings and outside them.
