Personal injury refers to any type of injury which has been caused to your body in an accident. It can include psychological injury or illness and also illnesses or injuries resulting from medical negligence or industrial disease such as noise induced hearing loss or asbestos related diseases.
Common types of accidents that can result in personal injuries are:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Accidents in Public places – such as tripping on the pavement or slipping in a shop
- Medical negligence
- Injuries caused from purchasing defective products
- Industrial diseases such as noise induced hearing loss or asbestos related diseases
If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury due to the fault of someone else then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Why make a Personal Injury Claim?
You may be eligible to claim for compensation if you have suffered personal injury in an accident or due to the negligence of another within the last 3 years.
By making a claim not only may you be awarded monetary compensation but you may also have a feeling of justice if your claim is successful or you may hope that it will encourage the Defendant (the person you are claiming against) to change things – such as to install safer procedures at work so that the future similar accidents and injuries can be avoided.
