Illnesses and negligence of others
You may think that the idea of becoming ill because of another person’s negligence is strange. However, consider work-related illnesses which can be proven to have been caused by the negligence of an employer. Employers have a duty to take care of workers health and safety at work. If an employee is diagnosed with an illness caused because of his or her working environment, then the employer’s negligence may be responsible.
If you have food poisoning after eating at a restaurant, for example, you may be able to prove that your illness was caused by the negligence of kitchen staff, either because the food had not been prepared or cooked correctly. In such an instance, you may be eligible to claim compensation from the restaurant owner.
There are other examples of illnesses caused because of another person’s negligence, and these are only two examples.
