Claims for illnesses
You can also file a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You might be wondering what illness could possibly be the result of negligence on the part of another person; work-related illnesses are a good example of these as you can often prove that such an illness was the result of your employer’s negligence because you were given inadequate training to do a job, or were not given protective gear. You may also be able to prove negligence if you have an accident at work because your employer did not carry out a thorough risk assessment before a job was started.
There are other types of illness which may be caused by the negligence of others, such as food poisoning which you had within 12 to 36 hours of eating out, MRSA contracted while in hospital undergoing surgery, clinical negligence cases and diseases such as Legionnaire’s Disease caused because a hotel owner had been negligent in carrying out his or her duty to regularly clean and service water supplies and air-conditioning systems.
How long do I have to claim?
If you had an accident in the UK then you generally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault at sea, in the air or at an airport, then you only have two years in which to file a claim.
