There are a variety of reasons why someone living in the Birmingham area would consider claiming compensation for personal injury, particularly if the injury was the result of a slip, trip or fall.
Employees can suffer personal injury in the workplace in a number of different ways. Slipping on wet surfaces, falling down stairs, tripping over boxes and other similar obstacles and lifting heavy goods can all result in injury that, if caused through no fault of their own, may leave them eligible to claim work accident compensation from their employer.
The same goes for customers at restaurants and supermarkets. Company owners may have to pay compensation to customers who are injured while in their establishment if the injury was caused by something that should not have been there or was not highlighted by relevant warning signage.
Personal injury caused by a road traffic accident
Minor car accidents happen regularly in Birmingham, and both drivers and passengers can suffer personal injury, such as whiplash and cuts & bruises, that may affect their way of life for a significant period of time, stopping them from working and reducing their income.
However, passengers involved in a road traffic collision sometimes do not realise they may qualify for road traffic accident compensation if the driver of the vehicle in which they were travelling in did not cause the accident.
If they require medical treatment for the injury suffered from the car crash and suffer loss of earnings due to the injury preventing them from working for a period of time, then it is likely that they will qualify to claim compensation as well.
