Injury Lawyers in Herne Hill


There is perhaps a connection to this place, Herne Hill and to Herne the Hunter, a legendary (or perhaps mythical) being with stags’ horns sprouting out of his head, who allegedly haunts Windsor Great Park. Alternatively Herne may be a derivative of heron, as these birds flocked to the area in previous times. Herne Hill hit the headlines in August 2013 because an old water pipe burst and flooded parts of it. Perhaps you were unlucky enough to have been injured in an accident that was a direct result of this event. If that is the case, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Herne Hill to make a personal injury compensation claim against the water company responsible for the maintenance of that 88-year-old pipe.

Can I make another kind of claim?

Illnesses resulting from negligence of another

There are several types of illnesses which you and your injury lawyers in Herne Hill could prove were the result of other people’s negligence. These include, but are not limited to:-

  • work-related illnesses and occupational diseases which could have been caused because of the negligence of your employer. You may not have been given adequate training to do a particular job, for example, or you may not have been given appropriate protective wear. Your employer should carry out risk assessments before a new job is started, and if this is not done, you may be working in dangerous conditions in which accidents or illnesses could occur.
  • food poisoning is another example of such an illness. Perhaps you contracted it because food in a restaurant had not been prepared properly, for example salad vegetables can harbour salmonella and other bacteria which are harmful if ingested. If they are not thoroughly washed, you could have a bout of food poisoning, which could range in severity of symptoms from the mild to the severe.
