The right to compensation
If you are one of the more than 3 million people who are injured in the UK each year and the accident that caused your injury was not your fault, then you have an absolute right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering.
In order to do so, you will need to start your personal injury claim no more than 3 years’ from the day that your accident occurred. This is because there is a strictly adhered to time limit on making claims, which applies in the vast majority of cases. This does not apply to injured children, who are able to file a claim for any accident they were involved in as a child for up to 3 years’ after the day they turn 18.
What you can claim for
As mentioned above, you can claim for almost any accident that was not your fault but which resulted in an injury to your person. This can be a physical injury such as a broken bone or whiplash; a psychological injury like depression of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder; or an industrial illness or diseases like Asbestosis or Repetitive Strain Injury.
Common accidents you can claim for
There are some accidents which are much more commonly the cause of a personal injury claim than others. They include:
- Slip, trip and fall accidents ( slipping on a wet floor, falling on uneven pavement)
- Road traffic accidents ( head injuries, whiplash)
- Workplace accidents ( manual handling injuries)
- Faulty product accidents (being cut by a faulty knife)
Hopefully, this gives you some idea as to what you may be able to make a personal injury claim for.
