Personal Injury

Most of us will suffer some form of personal injury at one time or another. The term is used to refer to injuries caused in accidents, for example fractures, lacerations and burns, and also certain diseases and conditions. For example illnesses like food poisoning, or industrial diseases such as asbestosis, occupational asthma and vibration white finger that are caused by exposure to hazards in the workplace, would also be considered personal injuries.

Personal Injuries

There are many types of personal injury that can occur, ranging from more minor injuries like bruising and superficial wounds, to ligament damage and dislocations or in serious cases severe head injuries or spinal injuries. The effects of a personal injury may last for only a short time, or in some cases there can be long term problems, scarring or permanent disability. If you have suffered a personal injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be in a position to make a personal injury claim.

Injuries in Public Places

Those in charge of the maintenance of public areas have a responsibility to make them safe enough for the public to use.  If this is not fulfilled, and there are dangerous defects, it is reasonably foreseeable that an accident could occur.  Therefore, if you have been injured in a public place through the negligence of someone else, you could have a good case to bring a claim.

Clinical Negligence Injury Claims

There are times when we have to place our trust in medical professionals and, for the most part, this is beneficial to us.  Unfortunately however, there are some occasions where the treatment provided is not satisfactory and can cause undue harm.  If this is proven to be the case, you may be entitled to claim compensation for medical negligence.

Serious Injuries

Serious injuries, such as spinal injuries, brain injuries, severe burns or the loss of a limb, can be extremely traumatic for the injured person and their loved ones.  If a serious injury occurs due to the negligence of someone else, whether as the result of, say, an accident or clinical negligence, it may be possible to make a serious injury claim for damages.

Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial diseases can be caused by exposure to harmful substances whilst at work.  Employers have a duty to protect their employees from such exposure, so if you are suffering an industrial disease that you believe has been caused by a current or former employer, it is likely that you will be able to make a compensation claim.

Making a Personal Injury Compensation Claim

If you suffer a personal injury, it is advisable to note down as much information as you can, such as the date and time of the accident, details of any witnesses and an account of how it occurred. This will be helpful if you decide to make a personal injury claim, as will any photographs of your injuries and the scene of the accident.

You should seek prompt medical attention to ensure that you receive the treatment you need and also to determine the nature of your injury.

The next step is to obtain specialist advice from a qualified, expert, personal injury lawyer, such as The Legal Line’s lawyers. They will advise on how best to pursue your case.

In addition to compensating you for the injuries and losses you have suffered, making a personal injury claim can often help to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future. For example new health and safety measures may be put into place by an employer or a hazard on a public pavement may be repaired.

Personal Injury Compensation

In many cases being the victim of a personal injury can cause financial strain, as an injured person may not be well enough to work, may incur costs for medical care and travel or may need to pay others to carry out household tasks or services they would normally provide.

The compensation should help ease the financial strain and allow you to concentrate on getting better.
