Could accident claims solicitors covering Chelmsford help with a claim for a data breach?
One of the more common enquiries our team is receiving recently relates to claims for a data breach. You may be aware that companies that collect, store and process your personal information need to abide by data protection law. This includes the Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR. Should an employer, healthcare provider or another data controller breach your data privacy, you could suffer both financial and emotional harm. If this has happened to you, and the organisation has acted negligently or unlawfully, you could be eligible for data protection breach compensation. You could claim for psychological injuries as well as the costs of identity fraud, and financial theft. We could help you with such claims.
Could personal injury solicitors help Chelmsford claimants with food poisoning or allergy claims?
Accident claims solicitors covering Chelmsford, no matter where in the country they’re based, could assist with claims where people have been harmed by restaurants’ and cafes’ negligence when it comes to food safety. Not only could we help with claims for food poisoning caused by poor food storage hygiene, or preparation hygiene, but we could also assist if a restaurant’s negligence has caused you to suffer an allergic reaction. You would need to be able to prove that the restaurant gave you incorrect allergen information on their menu or other printed documentation, or verbally. You could also claim if you asked them to leave an allergen out of your food and they included it without telling you. Whether you’ve suffered a peanut allergy or a bout of toxicosis caused by food poisoning, our solicitors could help you get the maximum amount of compensation possible for your claim.
Could accident claims solicitors covering Chelmsford help me claim on behalf of another person?
Sometimes, it may be necessary for a person to make a claim on behalf of another person. Some specific claims could include those on behalf of children who are injured under the age of 18. You could make a claim on your child’s behalf as their litigation friend. This would mean you’d be able to make decisions about the case. Their compensation would normally be held until they became of age. However, if there were any specific needs for the child (for example, medical bills) you could apply to the court to have some funds released.
You could also make a claim for a fatal accident in which you’ve lost a loved one, or where the person lacks mental capacity. We’d be happy to talk to you about this.
