Personal injury solicitors in Lympsham
You might be looking for a firm of personal injury solicitors in Lympsham, or ones based elsewhere, because you have suffered an injury or injuries in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You usually have three years from the date of such an accident in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although there are some accidents for which you only have two years in which to make a claim. Find out how long you have to file your claim by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You may also be searching for a firm of personal injury solicitors in Lympsham, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can demonstrate was the result of another person’s negligence. In such a case, you have three years in which to file a claim.
Illnesses caused by negligence
If you live in rented accommodation and you have repeatedly asked your landlord to do necessary repairs, perhaps because there is damp, and he or she has not fixed the problem, if you then develop a respiratory disease such as asthma, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against him or her.
You may have contracted food poisoning after eating out, or eating a contaminated product bought in a shop or supermarket. If you have received medical treatment and a doctor’s report can be made available you may be eligible to make a claim for the illness and the pain, distress and suffering it caused you. You should have kept the receipt either for the meal or the product to show proof of purchase. If it was a contaminated product which caused your illness, the wrapping should be kept so that it can be analysed by the local public health and hygiene department.
Other examples of illnesses resulting from another person’s negligence are work-related ones and occupational diseases. You would have to prove that it was negligence on the part of your employer that was responsible for the illness.
Yet another example of such an illness is Legionnaire’s Disease which you can contract if a water supply or air-conditioning system has not been properly maintained and serviced. You might get this in an office or hotel, usually abroad.
