If you rent a property and you become ill, perhaps with a respiratory problem because of living in damp conditions, if you had asked your landlord to repair the property several times and they have not done so, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against them for your illness. You and your injury solicitors in Notting Hill, for example, would have to prove that their negligence caused your illness. Landlords are responsible for the good maintenance of their property and should not allow tenants to live in poor housing conditions.
Illnesses you can claim for
If you contract an illness which you can prove another person’s negligence was responsible for (with the help of your injury solicitors in Notting Hill, or others based elsewhere in the UK), you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person. It might be a landlord if you are a tenant, or perhaps your employer in the case of a work-related illness or an occupational disease. You can also make a claim for food poisoning if it was contracted after having a meal out.
Injury solicitors in Notting Hill
Apart from being able to claim for an illness such as the ones mentioned above, you could also be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim for any injuries sustained in an accident. You and your injury solicitors would have to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in any way.
If the accident occurred within Britain, you could expect to have three years in which to file your claim. However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to claim. For illnesses, you have three years from the date of the diagnosis to get your claim started. You should call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have to file a claim for your injuries.
