Lamberhurst, a village in Kent, has been at various times a hop-growing area and a wine-producing one. It was also a centre of the Wealden iron industry, which had its origins in Roman times. It is in an area designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and so it regularly attracts visitors. However, if you live in the area, you will know that you will not find a firm of injury solicitors in Lamberhurst easily.
Injury solicitors in Lamberhurst
If you are looking for injury solicitors in Lamberhurst, you may have been unlucky enough to have been involved in an accident. If you sustained injuries which required medical treatment and can prove that the accident was no fault of your own, then you and your injury solicitors in Lamberhurst could file a compensation claim.
You usually have three years in which to file a claim for injuries resulting from an accident which happened in the UK. However, if the accident occurred aboard a ship, boat or aircraft, or at an airport, you only have two years in which to file a claim.
You also only have two years in which to make a claim for injuries sustained while a crime was in progress. You can claim for such injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Claiming for an illness
You may also be looking for injury solicitors in Lamberhurst, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. The ‘other person’ could be your employer if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or occupational disease, for example. You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for an illness such as this.
Other illness caused by the negligence of others
You may have had food poisoning after eating out in the UK, or on a package holiday abroad which you booked through a UK tour operator. You may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for this if you had to receive medical treatment and you kept the receipt for the meal so that you have proof of purchase.
If you are a tenant living in damp conditions and have repeatedly asked your landlord to repair the property, but they have not done so and you have become ill as a result, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against them.
There are other illnesses of this type too — these are only examples.
