You may be considering making an injury claim in Kegworth– for an injury suffered in an accident that was not your fault. You can also make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
You normally have three years in which to file any personal injury compensation claim, but in some cases you have only two. It is best to check with a personal injury solicitor to find out which category your accident falls into. You can also call us at Accident Advice Helpline, free, for expert legal advice about this point or any other aspect of making an injury claim in Kegworth or one from anywhere else in the UK.
Making an injury claim in Kegworth
You can make an injury claim in Kegworth (for example) if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, for example, which you can prove was the result of your employer’s negligence. You can also claim for an illness such as food poisoning which developed after eating out.
Perhaps you had a meal in a restaurant, stayed away from eggs and chicken (known for harbouring salmonella bacteria) and had a salad. Unfortunately leafy greens can also be a cause of food poisoning, even though you believe them to be healthy. If they are not washed thoroughly, they can be dangerous, as the bacteria stays on the leaves.
Lettuce, perhaps surprisingly, has been a major culprit in food poisoning cases throughout the world, not just in the UK. If your food was not prepared with a great deal of care, or was not cooked at the correct temperature, you may be able to make an injury claim, for example, against the owner of the restaurant where you ate. You would have to provide an accident solicitor with your receipt for the meal and with your medical report in order to make a personal injury compensation claim.
In 2013, approximately four hundred people attending the Street Spice event in Newcastle had food poisoning after eating raw curry leaves which were in a chutney. When the leaves were tested various strains of bacteria were found on them.
