    How to win an accidental injury claim


    Accidental injuries can happen at work; while shopping or being engaged in leisure activities; in hospitals and even in your own home. If these injuries by accident occurred through no fault on your part, you can make an accidental injury claim.

    Accidents at work

    Employers are duty bound to protect your health and safety. If they fail to do this by not providing you with adequate training or necessary safety equipment to perform your work safely, you can make an accidental injury claim.

    Road traffic accidents

    In a similar way, you can claim for compensation against other road users causing accidents in which you suffered injuries as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist.

    Slips, falls, and trips in public places

    If you trip over boxes, packaging materials or other items left on shop floors; slip on squashed fruit, wet flooring or ice; or fall after tripping over potholes or otherwise poorly maintained pavements or car park surfaces, you are legally entitled to claim injury compensation.

    Injuries by faulty products

    If you are electrocuted, burned, cut, bruised or otherwise injured by faulty products at home or anywhere else, for that matter, you can make an accidental injury claim for faulty product compensation. Naturally, you can also claim for injuries by medical negligence.

    What all of these potential claims have in common is that you need to:

    • Report accidents to responsible authorities (shop owners, councils, police) immediately
    • Gather as much information as you can about the incident.
    • Seek immediate medical attention

    Gathering information includes taking notes of:

    • Date, time and place of the accident
    • Description of what happened/how it happened
    • Names/contact details of others involved and witnesses
    • Insurance details/vehicle registrations (in case of motoring accidents)
    • Injuries sustained
