There are two villages in England with the name Roydon, one in the Epping Forest district of Essex and one in Norfolk. It is unlikely that there are any injury solicitors Roydon in either village. However, if you live in either of these places, or elsewhere, and have difficulty tracking down a firm of injury solicitors, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers below.
Why would I need injury solicitors in Roydon?
You may be searching for injury solicitors in Roydon, or ones based anywhere else in the country if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove resulted from another person’s negligence. You would have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for such an illness.
You might be seeking a firm of injury solicitors in Roydon, for example, because you were injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You would need to check with an expert injury solicitor to find out how long you have in which to make your claim, as although you have three years to file one for most accidents that occur within Britain, you may only have two years or less to claim for injuries arising from some accidents. You can also obtain this information from us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Illnesses and negligence of others
At first you might be a little puzzled about the idea that you can have an illness for which another person’s negligence is responsible for, but consider work-related illnesses, for example. If you have been diagnosed with one, you and your injury solicitor would need to prove that the illness was due to your employer’s negligence. Perhaps you had insufficient training to do your job without harm to your health, or you weren’t issued with appropriate protective clothing or equipment. Employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are in the workplace.
You may have had food poisoning after having a meal at a restaurant, or other establishment, and if you had medical treatment, your doctor would report your case to the local Public Health and Hygiene department and the Food Standards Agency, who would investigate. Food may have been improperly cooked or not prepared thoroughly, or cross-contamination (between raw meat or fish and vegetables) may have occurred.
These are just two examples of illnesses which can be caused by the negligence of another person.
