There are at least three places called Chapeltown in England, one is a suburb of Leeds, and there is one in Lancashire with another being a suburb of Sheffield. You may be looking for a firm of solicitors in Chapeltown in order to find a personal injury solicitor who could help you file a personal injury compensation claim, either for an illness or an injury.
Solicitors in Chapeltown and injury claims
If you have been injured in an accident that was in no way your fault, you may need the help of solicitors in Chapeltown, or ones based elsewhere in the British Isles, to help you build a case to prove that you were not to blame for it. This proof is crucial if you are to make a successful claim for your injuries. Although you generally have three years from the date of an accident which happened within the UK to file a claim for injuries arising from it, some accidents and injuries must be claimed for in a much shorter space of time. Solicitors in Chapeltown, for example, can tell you precisely how long you have to make your claim, as can we at Accident Advice Helpline. You wouldn’t want to lose out on compensation due to you, so find out how long you have to claim for your injuries soon.
Claims for illnesses caused by negligence
You can also make a personal injury compensation claim if you and your solicitors Chapeltown (for example), can prove it was caused because of another person’s negligence. You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with the illness to make your claim.
How can an illness be caused by someone’s negligence?
If you have suffered food poisoning, it might have happened because the staff at a restaurant had not prepared or cooked your meal in the correct way. If meat, poultry, fish, game and so on have not been cooked at the correct temperatures, bacteria may be present and cause you to have a very upset stomach. Also there may have been cross-contamination in the preparation stages, with raw vegetables coming into contact with raw meat. You may be able to make a claim for compensation because of the negligence of the catering staff.
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, in which case you may be eligible to make a claim against your employer if you can prove that it was their negligence which caused your illness.
These are only two examples of illnesses that could be contracted because of another person’s negligence.
