If you have suffered injuries in an accident that was no fault of yours, or been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease and live in Durham, you may be looking to make a personal injury claim in Durham. As well as not being responsible for the accident in which you sustained your injuries, you need to file a claim for compensation within three years of your accident or of first being diagnosed with an illness or disease which was caused by your working environment.
You can also claim personal injury compensation for an illness which was caused by another person’s negligence. Food poisoning would come into this category if you contracted it after eating out. You would need to have kept the receipt and sought medical treatment and either you or your doctor should have alerted the Public Health Department in your area so that an outbreak of food poisoning could be prevented. In a case such as this, it would be better not to wait long before claiming for compensation.
Personal injury claim in Durham
No one can accurately predict how much you might get in compensation for your injuries. However, there are some calculators which use information from past cases. The amounts of money awarded for specific accidents and injuries are collated. This is how some companies, such as Accident Advice Helpline, calculate how much money you could theoretically get if your compensation claim were successful.
