Illnesses resulting from another’s negligence
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, and if this is the case, you, with the help of a specialist solicitor, may be able to prove that your illness was caused by your employer’s negligence. While you are at work, your employer is responsible for your health and safety, so, if you become ill because of your working environment, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. You would have three years from the date of your first diagnosis of the illness in which to file such a claim.
Another illness which might be caused by another person’s negligence is food poisoning. If you eat a contaminated product which you bought at a supermarket or shop, you may be able to make a claim against the shop owner or the manufacturer, as long as you have the receipt as proof of purchase, and have kept the packaging so that it can be analysed.
You might also have food poisoning after having a meal out, in which case you would need medical treatment and your doctor should inform the local Public Health and Hygiene department of your illness so that the restaurant where you ate can be inspected, in order for there not to be an outbreak of food poisoning in your area.
There are other illnesses which might be caused by another person’s negligence, these are simply two examples.
