There may not be a firm of injury lawyers in Llanrhystud, so if you are a resident, you may be unsure about what to do in order to make a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident which, usually injury lawyers in Llanrhystud, or elsewhere could help you to file. If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault and you can prove this, you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Injury lawyers in Llanrhystud
Apart from making injury claims for injuries sustained in accidents, you may also claim for illnesses which you and your injury lawyers in Llanrhystud, for example, can prove resulted from another person’s negligence. Perhaps you live in rented accommodation and have repeatedly asked your landlord to do much-needed repairs, but he or she has failed to do so. If you were diagnosed with an illness resulting from your poor living conditions, you could be eligible to make a claim against your landlord.
Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
Apart from the example cited above, you can also claim for illnesses which are work-related if you can prove your employer’s negligence caused them. For example, if you work on a farm and specifically have worked in a dusty granary for years, you may have developed Farmer’s Lung, which is recognized as an occupational disease. If your employer failed to provide you with appropriate protective gear, you may be able to prove negligence on his or her part caused your illness.
Employers have a duty to protect both the health and safety of their employees and failure to do so can be construed as neglect of that duty.
You may have had food poisoning after having a meal at a local restaurant, and had to have medical treatment for it. You or your GP should inform the local Public Health department of your illness and the restaurant should then be investigated, so that the source of the food poisoning can be detected and a local (or national) epidemic be prevented. Bacteria proliferate if meat, poultry, fish and seafood are not cooked at the correct temperatures and salad greens, if not thoroughly washed, may still have bacteria lurking on them when they reach your plate.
If you have food poisoning after eating out, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the restaurant owner because of the negligence of the staff in the kitchen.
