You could also be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Roade, or one based close to where you live, because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by the negligence of another person or organisation. For this type of illness, you have three years from the date of your first diagnosis in which to make your claim.
Illnesses caused by negligence of another person
You may wonder what type of illnesses can be the result of another person’s negligence, so here are a few examples for you to consider.
- Work-related illnesses and occupational diseases may be a result of an employer’s negligence, as the employer has a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of his or her workforce.
- Food poisoning may result from another person’s negligence if food has not been properly prepared or cooked. You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of a restaurant, if you can prove that the staff caused your illness because of their negligence.
- If you go into hospital and get MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) while you are there, you may be able to claim that clinical negligence caused this illness. You could also become infected with norovirus while in hospital, and again you may be able to prove that negligence on the part of healthcare professionals caused this illness.
