Bromsgrove is a town in Worcestershire, which was called Bremesgrave in the Domesday Book of 1086. In other words, it gets its name from a person, Breme, who was buried in that place. It was granted the right to hold a market in 1200 and by the late Middle Ages, Bromsgrove was a centre for the wool trade. When that fell into decline, Bromsgrove moved with the times and became a centre for nail-making, which was begun by the Huguenot refugees. The Bromsgrove Guild of Fine Arts famously made the main gates of Buckingham palace. The guild began in 1898 and continued into the 1960s.
Why would I need solicitors in Bromsgrove?
If you have been injured in an accident, you might be looking for a firm of solicitors in Bromsgrove to help you prove that it was not your fault. You need to be able to prove this if you are to make a successful claim for your injuries.
You would also need to find out from a firm of solicitors in Bromsgrove how long you have in which to file a claim for your injuries, as there are different time limits set for different sorts of accident.
You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you, with the help of solicitors in Bromsgrove could prove you contracted because of another person’s negligence.
You would have three years from the first diagnosis of this type of illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
What kind of illnesses can be caused by negligence?
There are many types of illness that can be caused by another person’s negligence and a few examples of these are:
- work-related illnesses and occupational diseases
- food poisoning
- clinical negligence
- Legionnaire’s disease and
- respiratory problems caused by poor living conditions if you are living in rented property
If you are diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. Your employer has a legal duty to protect your health and safety while you are at work and failure to do so can lead to employees claiming compensation from him or her. All employers should have public liability insurance to cover such eventualities; the money to pay your claim won’t come out of your employer’s pocket.
You should have been given adequate training so that you can do your work with little risk to your health. If you need protective clothing and equipment, your boss has a duty to provide you with these.
