Illness Compensation Claims

Have you suffered an illness as a result of someone else’s negligence? If you have been made sick and it is an individual or company’s fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Find out today if our panel of illness compensation solicitors can help you.

For many of us, getting sick is a fact of life. Whether it is a stomach bug, or something more serious, many of us have come to accept illness as “one of those things”.

However, if you have been made ill due to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation for any missed work, medical bills and the pain and suffering it caused.

Find out today if you are owed compensation by getting in touch with our expert panel of illness solicitors.


What is an Illness Compensation Claim?

The occasional illness affects all of us from time to time. However, it has been recognised that certain cases of food poisoning or respiratory problems are caused by other people’s negligence. Some of these cases can mean just a few days of sickness, while others can have much longer-lasting effects. In the case of workplace illnesses, some illnesses are life-altering.

Illness compensation claims are centred around a scenario in which you have been made ill through no fault of your own, and where you can pinpoint who is to blame.  If you believe you have been made ill by someone else’s negligence, our panel of No Win, No Fee illness solicitors can help.


What Types of Illness Cases do you Deal With?

Our panel of solicitors has over 70+ years of experience. In that time, they have seen a number of illness cases, both work-related and in public places. Some of these include:

  • Food poisoning
  • Norovirus
  • Legionnaires’ Disease
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  • Water contamination
  • Industrial disease

The symptoms for these types of cases can vary greatly. Some can cause an illness for a few days, whereas others can have life-altering effects. In cases of gastric illness through food poisoning, for example, people often develop post-infective irritable bowl syndrome (PI-IBS) which can have a significant effect on their everyday life.

Other symptoms of illness compensation cases can include:

  • Chronic Fatigue syndrome
  • Psychological problems
  • Rheumatological conditions
  • Gastroenteritis
  • An exacerbation of a pre-existing condition
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Silicosis
  • Noise-induced hearing loss
  • Dermatitis
  • Musculoskeletal injuries from heavy lifting

If you have suffered from any of these illnesses, either whilst in work or through someone else’s negligence, our panel of expert personal injury solicitors can help.


No Win, No Fee Illness Compensation Solicitors

The panel take on the majority of their personal injury cases through a No Win, No Fee agreement. This means that there is no financial risk to you to lodge a complaint. In the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful, you will have nothing to pay.

Our panel will inform you how this process works when you get in touch. They will keep you updated every step of the way throughout your illness claim.


How Much Compensation Can I Receive for Illness Compensation Claim?

Every illness claim is different, meaning that it is difficult to tell you exactly how much you might look to recover.

Our panel of solicitors will determine with you how much you can claim in compensation after you have provided all of the evidence. They will keep you updated throughout your case so there are no surprises.


How long do Illness Compensation Claims Take?

Due to every illness case having different circumstances, it is difficult to put a timeline on your case until you have contacted us. Our panel will listen to your case and then tell you how long the claim may take.

As is always with personal injury claims, the more severe the injury or illness, the longer the case will take.


Is There a Time Limit for Claiming Illness Compensation?

Yes, there is a three-year time limit for claiming compensation for personal injury from the date the accident or illness occurred. However, in the case of industrial illnesses, this three-year limit applies to the period you were made aware of the illness.

The full extent of your illness may only be diagnosed after you have retired. You have three years after the point of your full diagnosis.

We would advise you to get in touch as soon as possible if you believe you have an illness compensation claim.
