Your questions on accident claim compensation injury answered
What is an accident claim compensation injury?
In the legal field ‘personal injury’ is a term used when you have been harmed. This could be either an injury to your body or psychological damage. The term is usually used when the injury is caused by the negligence of another person or company.
The personal injury could be as a result of a road traffic accident, an assault, accident at work, trip or fall, even medical negligence.
