Have you been injured in a supermarket?
If you have been unlucky enough to sustain an injury through an accident at a supermarket, then you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
To find out for certain whether you might be eligible or not please contact our solicitor in Kensington today and they will be able to provide you with all of the information you are likely to need.
Alternatively you could take our 30 second test which will not only check that you are able to make a claim based on your individual situation, but will also be able to give you a strong indication of how much your compensation claim might actually be worth.
Types of accidents
You may at first be unsure what sort of accidents qualify for compensation claims, but an experienced solicitor in Kensington will be able to tell you that pretty much any accident can entitle the victim to seek compensation. The general rule of thumb is that the accident must not have been your fault as the victim and should have occurred within the last three years.
These two points are enforced as in order for your solicitor in Kensington to be able to make a claim they need to be able to make a claim against the person responsible for the accident. It should be quite logical to see that they cannot do this if the accident was in fact your fault.
With regards to the time limit which is imposed, legally speaking you are entitled to make a claim, but you have to do so within a sensible period of time. This is either three years from the date of the accident, or three years from when you became aware of the injury which you had sustained. While these two time periods often coincide, a solicitor in Kensington will be aware that this is not always the case, specifically when dealing with a case of industrial disease. You may have been exposed to a certain substance many years ago, but only recently been made aware of the diagnosis or the risks imposed by the exposure.
If you are in any doubt about responsibility or time frames, please contact Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to our solicitor in Kensington who will be able to offer you more advice and guidance on the best way to proceed.
