A day trip out from Fauldhouse to a farm is an exciting and interesting experience for many adults and children alike. For some children it is their only opportunity to come into contact with animals and learn how they feed and live. This sort of education is vital for children to gain an understanding of the world around them and about how to protect it.
However, as with nearly all activities that we undertake with our children – this day trip is not risk free. Several harmful pathogens (germs) live in, on and around animals and our contact with the animal and its environment is bound to bring us into contact with those pathogens as well. The worst case scenario is that we, or our children (or both) become ill due to those pathogens and we have to hunt for a personal injury solicitor in Fauldhouse to help us make a compensation claim.
How can a personal injury solicitor in Fauldhouse help me?
If you have been infected with a pathogen from a farm visit (such as E.coli O157) then you will have been very ill. You will probably have to take a few weeks off work and may even have been admitted to hospital. This pathogen can leave the victim with permanent kidney damage and so you will be left coping with the effects for the rest of your life. You deserve some form of financial compensation for this if you were infected because of someone else’s negligence. This is when a personal injury solicitor in Fauldhouse can help you to start a personal injury claim.
What exactly will a personal injury solicitor in Fauldhouse do?
Your personal injury solicitor will first set about proving who was to blame for your disease. There are strict guidelines and Codes of practice that have to be followed on farms that allow visitors near animals. If these have not been followed then you may be able to show that they were at fault for your illness. Once this has been established then a sum of compensation will be negotiated. Sometimes a group of people have been made ill and a group claim is started. Reference may be made to investigations and outbreak reports which highlight exactly what has gone wrong but these reports can take several months to be prepared and then made available.
How can I find a personal injury solicitor in Fauldhouse?
One of the most straightforward ways is to call Accident Advice Helpline – they operate a 24/7 hotline so you will always have someone to talk to about your claim. They will assess whether you have grounds to make a claim and then allocate exactly the right personal injury solicitor for your case.
