If you are looking for injury solicitors in Ladbroke Grove, you may have had an accident while negotiating the stairs going down to the Tube at Ladbroke Grove. Of course, there are many other reasons why you could be seeking the services of injury solicitors in Ladbroke Grove, or ones based elsewhere in the UK.
Injury solicitors in Ladbroke Grove
One of the main reasons for searching for a firm of injury solicitors in Ladbroke Grove is that you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You usually have three years in which to make a claim for an accident that occurred in Britain. However, if your accident happened at sea, in the air or at an airport almost anywhere in the world (the country must be a signatory of the Montreal Convention), then you only have two years in which to make your personal injury compensation claim.
You also only have two years in which to claim for injuries arising from a crime, and you claim for these through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Claiming for an illness
You can also make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you and your injury solicitors in Ladbroke Grove can prove was contracted because of another person’s negligence. You have three years from the first diagnosis of the illness in which to file your claim.
Examples of illnesses which may be caused because of negligence on the part of another person are work-related ones, occupational diseases, food poisoning, Legionnaires’ disease, or illnesses caused by living in poor conditions if you are a tenant. There are others too, of course.
Accidents at stations
If you trip, slip or fall at a railway station or an underground station, then if you and your injury solicitor can prove your injuries were the result of another person’s negligence, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Staff at stations are responsible for the public’s safety, and if you slip because liquid or food has not been cleaned up from the floor then you and your injury solicitor may be able to prove that your injuries were the result of negligence on the part of staff at the station. Snow and ice should also be cleared away to prevent accidents.
If you fall on steps because a handrail breaks or has broken, you may also be able to prove that you injury was caused by negligence because the rail had not been checked and replaced.
