Why search for serious injury solicitors in Rotherwick?
If you are a resident of Rotherwick, you may have been involved in an accident of any kind, and suffered injuries. If you and your serious injury solicitors Rotherwick, for example, can prove that you were not to blame for the accident, you may have grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim.
You could also make a personal injury compensation claim if you and your serious injury solicitors in Rotherwick could prove that an illness with which you have been diagnosed was the result of another person’s negligence.
How long to claim for compensation?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness that was caused because of the negligence of another person, you would have three years in which to claim.
For most accidents and injuries that occur within the British Isles, you also have three years in which to file a claim. However, if your accident and injury occurred at sea, in the air or at an airport, you only have two years in which to file a claim.
You also only have two years in which to make a claim for injuries sustained while a crime was in process.
There are other accidents and injuries resulting from them, for which you have even less time in which to file a claim, so check with serious injury solicitors in Rotherwick, or ones based elsewhere, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out precisely how long you have to make your claim.
Negligence and illnesses
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or occupational disease which you can prove was the result of your employer’s negligence. Alternatively, you may have contracted food poisoning after eating out, or eating a contaminated product. You may be entitled to make a claim against the owner of a restaurant if you can prove that negligence on the part of kitchen staff caused your illness. You could claim, theoretically, from the manufacturer of a product that made you ill.
You may also be able to claim for an illness caused by the negligence of your landlord (who had not done necessary repairs to your accommodation) if you became ill because of your living conditions if you are a tenant.
These are just a few example of illnesses which could be caused because of another person’s negligence.
