Injury Solicitors in Nottingham


In the 19th century Nottingham was famous for its “Nottingham lace”, which was much-sought after by Victorians and Edwardians.

Lace workers were victims of tuberculosis and failing eyesight and the women, working in very high temperatures in low-ceilinged rooms, were victims of diseases associated with hot climates. In those days, of course the workers had no recourse to compensation for the illnesses they contracted because of their poor working conditions. There were no injury solicitors Nottingham, or elsewhere, and no personal injury compensation claims could be made.

Injury solicitors in Nottingham

Nowadays a firm of injury solicitors Nottingham, and of course other such firms all over the country can help workers, who have contracted a work-related illness or occupational disease, file a personal injury compensation claim against their employer. They have to prove that the employer’s negligence was the cause of the illness.

It isn’t just work-related illnesses that can be claimed for. If you can prove, with the help of injury solicitors Nottingham, for example, that someone else’s negligence was responsible for your illness, you may be eligible to make a claim against that person.

For example, if you were treated for food poisoning after eating out, you may be able to make a claim against the restaurant owner because his or her staff had been negligent.

If you are a tenant and live in bad housing conditions, if you have asked your landlord to do necessary repairs to make the accommodation habitable and these have not been done, if you contract an illness because of them, you could make a claim against your landlord.

Accidents and injuries

If you are injured in an accident which was not your fault, and you and your injury solicitors Nottingham, for example, can prove this, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person whose fault the accident was.

You usually need to make your claim for compensation within three years for accidents and injuries which happened in the UK, as well as for illnesses caused by another person’s negligence.
