We can connect you to medical negligence solicitors covering Maidstone if you have suffered from medical negligence in any of the hospitals, clinics or nursing homes in Kent whether they were operated by the NHS or by a private provider. You may have suffered from medical negligence if you have come down with an illness or have suffered an avoidable injury after staying in hospital or being treated by a doctor and you believe that the staff treating you gave you sub-standard care. Medical negligence can also occur in nursing homes where the elderly and frail residents are often dependent on staff for basic needs such as washing, eating meals and moving around and can suffer health problems and distress if these needs are not met.
Similarly, patients staying in hospitals can often be physically frail as they recuperate from their illnesses or surgeries. If their intake of food and medication is not closely monitored by staff, or if their symptoms are not closely monitored, they can suffer worsening health. Patients may need staff and nurses’ help moving around, if they are left unassisted they may develop bedsores, or if nurses fail to follow the correct lifting techniques when moving them from their beds they may fall and suffer an injury.
You could work with our panel of solicitors covering Maidstone to carry out a work injury compensation claim if you have been injured at work in Maidstone due to negligence or you believe that you are suffering from health problems related to your occupation that could have been prevented. If you have an injury or a work related health issue that you believe you can prove your employer should have prevented with better workplace safety measures then get in touch with our team as soon as possible. Examples of long term health problems caused by a lack of safety provisions could include breathing and lung issues caused by exposure to particulates without breathing masks or hearing loss or damage due to a lack of ear protection.
Even if your accident and injury happens outside of the UK our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Maidstone could still be able to help you receive compensation. If you were travelling on a package holiday then the company you booked it through could be liable for any avoidable injury you suffer during any part of the holiday which they arranged, i.e. your flights or your hotel. Since you would be claiming against a British company it would not differ legally from any other kind of personal injury claim in the UK. Note that they would not be liable for an accident that took place while you were doing something that was not part of your holiday package, for instance if you had an accident in a nightclub. If you suffered an accident while on a holiday which you arranged yourself you would have to make a personal injury claim against the relevant third party, such as a hotel or resort, which would have to be managed according to the law of the country in which the accident took place. In these circumstances, we may be able to arrange for a personal injury solicitor from our panel with a background in the law of the relevant country to take on your case. Call us today to discuss the circumstances of your case with our team.
You could be entitled to compensation if you have been the victim of a violent crime and have suffered an injury and/or psychological harm. For example, if you have been mugged, the victim of domestic abuse or you have witnessed a particularly violent crime you could be entitled to compensation. Compensation for criminal injury comes from the CICA, the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority, the government agency responsible for handling and awarding compensation for criminal injury cases. A criminal injury compensation claim is not the same as a general personal injury claim, nor does the person responsible need to be convicted in order for compensation to be awarded.
You can visit the CICA website to look at the compensation bands if you wish to know more about how much compensation you may be owed.
There is a criminal injury compensation claims time limit which in most cases might reduce your ability to make a claim, however, there are cases where the time limit does not apply. This would be the case in sexual abuse or rape claims. In these cases, it would be taken into account that many victims have not felt able to come forward with their experiences for many years and compensation could be awarded even if the events in question took place decades ago.
If you have suffered an accident in Maidstone that happened in a public place, such as a shop or while walking down the street, then you could consider talking to our team for advice on whether it has entitled you to make a no win no fee personal injury claim. If you can prove that the accident was not your fault then there is a chance that the party which owns the space where your accident happened could be liable for not making their property safe for the public. In some cases the organisation you are claiming against could be the local council . For example, if you have injured yourself on faulty gym equipment in a council operated leisure centre or if you have tripped on a pavement that was badly maintained by the council. In other cases you might claim against a business, if you have slipped and hurt yourself on a spilled drink and/or broken glass in a pub or if you have contracted food poisoning from a meal you have eaten in a restaurant.
If you have taken a financial loss from a pension scheme, or some other financial product, and you were pressured into buying it, were not asked to give certain information, were not warned about the financial risk or were not provided with alternative options, then you could be entitled to compensation. Any of these things could be considered to be financial mis-selling, financial mis-selling is illegal and the company which sold the product to you could be liable to a fine. If you have lost money as a result then you could make a no win no fee claim for compensation. You could claim for a mis-sold pension through our panel of solicitors covering Maidstone.
You could work with our panel of no win no fee solicitors to claim compensation in the event of a tenancy dispute between you and your landlord. Your landlord does not have the right to withhold your tenancy deposit from you in the event of your tenancy coming to an end. If they are not in a position to provide you with the full value of your deposit when you have met all your obligated needs then they do not have the right to evict you with a Section 21 eviction notice. Your landlord is not permitted to lose the tenancy deposit either, they must secure it by putting it in a Government approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme and prove that they have done so by the passing the details of this TDS to you in writing within 30 days of receiving your deposit. You can go through the tenancy deposit dispute process with our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Maidstone. You can read up on your rights as a tenant on the website of the housing charity Shelter.
If you have been living in rented accommodation, a housing association property or a council property and you have suffered injury, illness or damage to your property related to disrepair in your home then you could be entitled to compensation. If you do not own your own home then responsibility for maintaining and repairing the property is on the party whom you are renting the property from. There are a number of ways substandard housing maintenance could harm your health. In the winter months when the temperature drops, your health could be threatened by low temperatures if faults in the central heating or in window fittings prevent you from keeping the home warm. You could develop a range of health problems ranging from skin and throat irritation to serious lung infections due to prolonged exposure to mould and damp produced by condensation and poor ventilation. For more detailed information about housing disrepair claims you can read the content of this justice.gov webpage.
