The foot was injured in August 2010 I have had 2 checks on it one for an insole on the foot,in 2011 and another for an appraisal of the foot and a recommendation of what footwear to use, this was done last month 2013
I now am walking with a limp and have to see a chiropodist on a 6 to 8 week basis in order to have hard callous skin removed privately.
On over the counter pain killers.
Thank you. In addition to the above, and based upon thefurther information you have supplied, you are going to need an experts report(probably orthopaedic surgeon) confirm that your limp is as a result of thebroken toe and from a corrupt but this confirms the same about the hard skin.
As it is so late with regard to limitation, you need to getstraight on the case to try and find a solicitor. We are not allowed torecommend solicitors or take instructions but I do know people who have dealtwith this firm and been quite satisfied. Mention that you came from me on thissite.
Don't worry about their location because there is littlechance that you would need to visit them. http://www.handleylaw.co.uk/
I am assuming of course that there is no issue overliability and that the employer will admit that it is their fault.
It is worthwhile mentioning that if you bring a claimagainst the employer, sometimes it can adversely affect your future workingrelationship. I simply add that in for completeness.
Can I assist further?
