People have accidents every day and some suffer serious injuries in them. Did you know that if you have suffered an injury in an accident which was not your fault, and you (along with your accident solicitor in Bishops Cannings, for example) can prove that the accident was caused by negligence on the part of another person, you could make a personal injury compensation claim?
Types of accidents
There are many types of accidents and each happens in unique circumstances, but here is a list of where and how some of those which occur.
Accidents at work
Accidents in public places
Accidents on the road
Accidents in the Armed Forces
Accidents on boats and ships
Accidents on holiday
Injuries which can occur in accidents range from minor wounds and lacerations to catastrophic life-changing ones (because of paralysis or brain damage) and can be fatal. If a close relative dies after an accident that was not his/her fault, you can claim compensation for their death, and although this doesn’t bring a loved one back, it can help the remaining relatives survive their bereavement.
Compensation is supposed to cover the pain, distress and suffering caused by the injury or death and may include medical expenses (keep receipts for prescriptions and taxi fares to the doctor’s surgery or the hospital) and loss of earnings. If the injury is a life-changing one, then compensation is to cover future as well as past medical expenses, and rehabilitation. It should also cover the costs of nursing care (whether by family members or a nursing professional), and the cost of refitting the injured person’s home so that is easier for them to negotiate their way around.
It is impossible to say how much anyone will receive in compensation for their personal injury as so many things have to be factored in to the equation.
