Injury lawyers in Loughton
You may be looking for a firm of injury lawyers in Loughton or ones based close to where you live, in order to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident that you can prove was not your fault. Usually you have three years after the date of your accident in which to make your claim. However, in the case of accidents at sea, in the air, or at airports, you only have two years in which to claim, as these accidents are governed by international conventions.
Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
You are also entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against a person whose negligence has caused you to become ill. You must be able to prove negligence on the part of another person to be able to file a personal injury compensation claim for an illness.
An illness caused by another person’s negligence might be a work-related one, and in this case, you would have to prove that it was the result of your employer’s negligence. Employers should protect their employee’s health and safety, and provide them with a working environment that is as safe and healthy as it can possibly be, following the guidelines laid down by the Health and Safety Executive which oversees the regulations governing health and safety at work.
Other illnesses which fall into this category are food poisoning, MRSA, Legionnaire’s Disease, and a variety of others, including ones caused by the negligence of landlords if they do not maintain tenants’ accommodation.
You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for an illness such as this.
