    Injury lawyers in Leek Wootton

    You can usually make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You will need to file a claim within three years of your accident and will need the services of a firm of injury lawyers in Leek Wootton, or ones elsewhere in the country.

    You may also be seeking injury lawyers in Leek Wootton or elsewhere if you have an illness (or had one) which you could prove was caused by the negligence of another person. You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for this kind of illness.

    Exceptions to the general three-year rule

    If you were injured in an accident at sea, aboard an aircraft or at an airport and you can prove the accident was no fault of yours, you only have two years in which to file a claim for your injuries.

    If you were injured in an act of violence in England, Scotland or Wales, you have two years to claim for your pain, distress and suffering (mental and physical) through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, which is a government organization.

    Agricultural accidents and illnesses

    If you live in Leek Wootton you are in the heart of the countryside. You may be one of the vast majority who believe that working on a farm means that you have a healthy working environment. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Some people who work on farms have a respiratory disease known as Farmer’s Lung, caused by working in dusty granaries. This is a recognized occupational disease.

    The most common accidents, some of which are fatal are those involving farm vehicles. All too often workers are crushed when a tractor overturns, for example.

    Another common accident on farms is falling from a height, which is often fatal. Farmers seem not to carry out risk assessments before doing a task, and people fall through flimsy roofs and into silos.
