    You can also file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness that you can prove, along with your injury lawyers in Heddon-on-the-Wall, was caused by someone else’s negligence. You would have three years in which to make your claim. You may be wondering what type of illness could be caused by someone else, but there are many that fall into this category.

    Three types of illness caused by negligence

    The most common of these types of illnesses are work-related. Your employer has a duty to protect your health and safety while at work. If you contract an illness caused by an unhealthy working environment, you can make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. Your injury lawyers in Heddon-on-the-Wall will need your medical records in order to build a case so that you can claim compensation.

    Another example of such an illness is food poisoning. You may have sustained this after eating at a restaurant, or you may have bought and eaten a contaminated product from a shop or supermarket. If you have food poisoning, you should receive medical treatment and your doctor should alert the local Department of Public Health so that an outbreak in your local area can be prevented. You can file a compensation claim from the owner of the restaurant if your illness was caused because the food was not correctly prepared or cooked. You can file a claim against the manufacturer of a contaminated product if it is proved that this is what gave you food poisoning.

    You may contract MRSA after going into hospital. This is one of the superbugs which has evolved to become resistant to traditional antibiotics. If you have this as a result of a stay in hospital, you can file a personal injury compensation claim against the hospital trust.
