Cuts and bruises are one of the most common injuries suffered in a range of different accidents. You could suffer cuts to your face in a car crash or bruising to your legs and hips after slipping and falling in an icy car park. But did you ever stop to think that you could make a cuts and bruises compensation claim for your pain, suffering and financial losses? You might be able to claim compensation which could make life easier financially whilst you take the time off work that you need to recover. Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so we’re here to ensure that claiming cuts and bruises compensation is affordable for everyone.
Accidents leading to cuts and bruises
You might be wondering what types of accidents could lead to cuts and bruises; well, here are just a few examples:
- Car crash
- Motorbike accident
- Being hit by a car (as a pedestrian)
- Fall from height
- Slip, trip or fall – for example tripping at work, slipping in an icy car park or falling on an uneven pavement
- Being hit by objects falling from height – tools falling off scaffolding, files falling off a shelf etc.
- Collision with a co-worker at work
- Playground accidents – children colliding or falling off playground equipment
- Injured by faulty machinery or equipment at work
As you can see you could be injured in a public place or at your place of work, and whether or not you can make a personal injury claim will depend on who is responsible for your accident. If your employer has been negligent – for example if you’ve suffered cuts due to faulty tools or machinery at work that were not inspected – you could hold them liable for your injuries and make a claim for compensation.
Whilst you’ll recover from minor cuts and bruises quickly, serious lacerations and extensive bruising can take time to heal from and you may need an extended period of time off work and medical treatment for your injuries. That’s why making a personal injury claim is a good idea – you’ll be compensated for your loss of earnings as well as your pain and suffering, which can help you out financially until you’re ready to return to work. If you’ve suffered permanent scarring, Accident Advice Helpline will take into account the impact this has had on your life when we work out your personal injury settlement.
