Why seek injury solicitors in Normanton?
One of the reasons for seeking injury solicitors in Normanton is that you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. If the accident happened within the British Isles in the last three years, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
There are some accidents and injuries, however, for which you only have two years in which to make a claim. These include accidents which occur aboard a ship or a boat outside British territorial waters, and ones that happens in the air or at an airport (in certain countries). These types of accident are governed by international conventions.
You also only have two years in which to claim for injuries arising from a violent crime. If the attack happened in England, Wales or Scotland you can claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), and if it occurred in Northern Ireland you can claim through the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
Can I claim for an illness?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury solicitors in Normanton can prove was caused by the negligence of another person — for example, if you were diagnosed with an occupational disease or a work-related illness — then you would need to build a case to show that your employer’s negligence caused it. You would have three years in which to make a claim for this kind of illness.
An employer is not the only person whose negligence could be responsible for your illness. You may have had medical treatment for food poisoning after eating out, and it could be that it was due to the negligence of the kitchen staff. If that were the case, you could make a personal injury compensation claim against the restaurant owner.
