When it comes to looking after people who have been injured in an accident which was not their fault, the UK has some of the best health and safety legislation in the world. This legislation is underpinned by the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, as well as a variety of other statutes.
No matter whether you have had an injury at work, whilst out at a public place, taking public transport or even on private property, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries, as well as any financial costs you have incurred. The usual statute of limitations on personal injury claims is three years from the date of the accident. However, if your injuries don’t surface till later than this, your three year claims period will begin when you first detect the injury or have it diagnosed.
In order to make a successful claim, there are several things your solicitor will need to demonstrate. These include;
- Being able to show that the defendant had a duty of care to you.
- That this duty of care has been breached.
- That this breach was the direct cause of your injury.
