Can I claim compensation in Amber Valley? Types of injuries you can claim for
There is an endless list of accidents and illness that you can make a claim for. However, the most common personal accidents fall within one of three categories:
- Road traffic personal injury claim
Some of the most common types of accidents that claims are made for happen on the roads. It doesn’t matter if you are a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian; if you are injured in an accident on the roads which was caused by someone else then you can make a claim for compensation. The claim could be made for injuries including broken bones, cuts and bruises, the loss of a limb or digit, whiplash and many others.
- Workplace personal injury claims
Whether you work in a busy office or an industrial factory your employer has a duty of care to ensure your safety whilst at work. For instance, they must adhere to sufficient health and safety regulations, make sure all staff receive appropriate health and safety training and that all equipment is in a safe working order. Their failure to meet any of these demands could result in you being involved in an accident or contracting an illness and as such you would be entitled to file a claim for compensation against them.
- Home-based personal injury claims
Although we tend to think of the home as a safe environment in which we can relax an increasing number of personal injuries occur in this setting. Whilst you might think that any accident that occurs under your own roof is your responsibility this is not necessarily the case. For instance a home-based accident could result because of a faulty product or negligence on the part of a landlord. In these cases you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
These are just the most common claim types of accidents we see here at Accident Advice Helpline. You may experience another type of accident such as an accident whilst on holiday or suffer a sporting injury. You could even suffer food poisoning whilst out at a local restaurant and make a claim for any inconveniences the illness has caused.
In fact the only criteria your accident must meet is that it took place within the past three years, was not your own fault and led to you receiving medical treatment.
