None of us ever expect accidents to happen. If we knew one was about to take place we would do our best to prevent it. Unfortunately over 3 million happen every year in the UK, and some of the victims want to know more about making a claim for an unexpected personal injury.
The problem with injuries is not just the pain and suffering they can cause. Accidents often bring extra expenses with them, and sometimes a loss of income when times is needed off work to recover. These things are not planned for, but are why victims make a claim for an unexpected personal injury.
Making your claim for an unexpected personal injury
If you are considering making a claim for an unexpected personal injury, you first of all need to establish that you qualify for compensation.
- The accident you were injured in needs to have been the fault of someone else
- Your injuries must have needed medical treatment, and a medical report will be needed from whoever treated you
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
In this situation, if you are suffering because of the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of someone else, it is only fair that you be compensated by whoever was to blame.
