You may have sustained injuries in an accident that was not your fault, and you could prove this, if only you had an expert injury solicitor to help you build a case. You may, on the other hand, have been diagnosed with an illness which you know was caused by another person’s negligence.
Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer. Under the Health and Safety at Work regulations, an employer has a legal duty to safeguard both the health and safety of his or her employees. If you are ill because your employer failed in that duty to protect you while you were at work, and you can prove this, you could have a personal injury compensation claim to make. You would have three years from the first time you were diagnosed with the illness in which to make your claim.
You may have had a bad bout of food poisoning after eating a contaminated product which you bought in a shop or supermarket. If you needed medical treatment for this, you doctor should have informed the local department of Public Health and Hygiene and they should investigate your case. It would be helpful if you kept the wrapping the product came in so that it can be analysed to discover which bacteria caused your illness. You could also have contracted food poisoning after eating at a restaurant, and then it might be possible to make a claim against the restaurant owner because staff had been negligent in the preparation or cooking of your food.
These are just some examples of illnesses which can be caused because of the negligence of another person.
