Claim for accident injuries

Lessons can be learnt from workplace accidents, safety campaigners say

Should you claim for accident injuries?

Despite the fact that several hundred individuals per annum are injured at work and around one million on the roads, most citizens wouldn’t know how to claim for accident and injury if it happened to them.

Myths abound

People worry they will run up huge legal bills for seeking advice. The prospect of court appearance and being eyeballed by black-gowned barristers is intimidating. The thought of incurring the wrath of “the other side” is also terrifying. Even for a fit and healthy individual, legal action is not to be taken likely, so a person who is suffering injury and who doesn’t feel up to the fight may abandon the idea. In practice, the majority of claims are settled out of court and usually only one independent medical report is required.
