There are at least four places called Brockhampton in England, on in Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds, two in Herefordshire (one called Brockhampton-by-Ross) and one in Hampshire. It is unlikely that there are firms of solicitors Brockhampton-based in any of these villages. If you need help and expert legal advice to file a personal injury compensation claim, and can’t find solicitors Brockhampton, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
How could personal injury solicitors Brockhampton help me?
Accidents, injuries and illnesses occur everywhere, without exception, and if you wish to claim compensation for an illness or an injury, you would need the assistance of solicitors Brockhampton, if there were any.
You have to be able to prove without a shadow of doubt that an accident in which you were injured was not your fault. If you have an illness which you allege was caused by another person’s negligence, you must, with the help of solicitors Brockhampton or elsewhere, prove that this was caused because of someone else’s negligence; the key word here is ‘prove’.
Illnesses which can be caused by negligence
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or disease, perhaps with repetitive strain injury (RSI), you and your solicitor would have to prove that your employer had been negligent towards you, and so you contracted a form of RSI. If you are constantly using your upper body to push or pull heavy carts (as you might if you worked in a bakery, for example) you might be diagnosed with Work-Related Upper Limb disorder. You could perhaps prove that you had not been trained to do the job safely, or been given adequate breaks.
If you work all day at a computer, you may get RSI because your workstation has not been adjusted to suit your height, so you are working in an uncomfortable position all day.
Food poisoning can also be attributed to another person’s negligence. Food must be prepared following strict guidelines so that any lurking bacteria are destroyed. If you become ill after eating at a restaurant, you may be able to claim compensation from the restaurant owner if an investigation shows that food had been improperly prepared or cooked.
If you are a tenant, living in rented property which is in need of repair, you might be able to make a compensation claim against your landlord if he or she has not done necessary repairs and because of your living conditions you have developed a respiratory disease.
These are just a few examples of illnesses that may be caused by the negligence of another person.
