What kind of personal injuries you can claim compensation for?
Accidents happen in all shapes and sizes. Basically, anywhere there are people there are also accidents. Humans are far from perfect and mistakes happen. Unfortunately, some of these mistakes lead to people getting injured. The law is written so that anyone who is hurt because of the mistakes or negligence of someone else can claim financial compensation to help them to get back on track with their health and their life in general.
The most common accidents that happen
- Slips, trips and falls. This happens more than you would think, and even though at a first glance we’d be tempted to say that the fault because to the person who slipped, tripped or fell, it is often proven that actually someone or something else is at fault for these injuries. It can be a wet floor, an un-signalled step — it can be anything. As long as you can prove that it was not your fault, you’ve got a case.
- Road trip accidents. Cars give us independence. They serve us well and make the world a little bit smaller by making it so much more accessible. However, cars are also one of the biggest causes of accidents. Road traffic accidents cause a wide range of injuries, from mild whiplash injuries to months of hospitalisation.
- Accidents at work. Since people spend at least a third of their life at work, accidents are bound to happen there. Even though employers are required to provide good working conditions, they are often at fault when it comes to working materials, safety precautions or protection gear. Accidents often happen even in an apparently safe environment like an office. Not having a good ergonomic chair can translate into serious back problems, and it shouldn’t be the employee paying for this.
- Medical negligence. This is truly unfortunate, because these are cases where we are hurt by exactly the people who are supposed to make us better. While we can all understand that everyone makes mistakes, even medical personnel, there’s no reason that anyone should pay for others’ mistakes.
