Common law injury claims


Common law is also known as case law. It refers to a branch of the legal system, whereby judgements are made based on past decisions in the relevant courts. If there is disagreement between two parties, then the judge is bound to make a decision based on what has been declared in previous cases, that were similar in nature. So if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, but the person responsible has not broken any specific law, then you may be able to make a compensation claim under common law.

Common law injury claims can be made by employees who have been injured as a result of their employer’s negligence. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can give you free initial advice about your claim, and guide you through the legal process.

Making common law injury claims

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, then you should ensure that you receive medical attention as soon as possible. In addition, you should make sure that your employer is notified of your accident and that the details are recorded clearly.

Your injury might mean that you need to take time off work in order to recover. You may be forced to live on a reduced income as a result, which would make a difficult situation even more stressful. By making common law injury claims, you could recoup any lost income, as well as any additional expenses that you incurred as a result of your accident. These could include fees for specialist medical treatment as well as travel to and from hospital appointments.

To give your claim the best possible chances of success, it is a good idea to engage the services of an expert lawyer. Thankfully, you don’t need to look very far to get that expertise, as you have found Accident Advice Helpline.
