Who can claim personal injury compensation?
Anyone who has been injured in an accident that was clearly caused by someone else, for which you sought medical treatment can file a personal injury claim. However, in most cases, the injury must have been sustained in the past 3 years.
Accidents that qualify for personal injury compensation
It is difficult to say if your accident is eligible for compensation without establishing the facts of your case. However, here are a list of common accidents that could lead to personal injury compensation:
- Road traffic accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Workplace accidents
- Industrial diseases
- Faulty product injuries
Common injuries you can claim for

- Repetitive Strain Injuries
Who can I get compensation from?
If you want to claim personal injury compensation, it is usually the case that you will need to file a claim against a party who has liability in the event of an accident e.g. an employer or local council. By law, these people will need to have liability insurance in place, so it is typically an insurance company who will pay any compensation you are awarded.
