Do I have a valid compensation claim in Sutton St James?
Have you been injured in the Sutton St James area? Are you thinking to make a compensation claim, but unsure if you have a valid claim? The following questions will help you decide if you have a successful compensation claim.
Have you suffered a personal injury?
You need to have suffered a personal injury before you can claim compensation. Personal injury simply means you’ve suffered an injury to yourself. The injury can be in the form of a disease, an illness, a psychological injury or an obvious injury to the body such as a broken bone.

Do you have medical evidence?
Medical evidence is essential if you want to make a compensation claim in Sutton St James. Medical records are required in all compensation claims because they are proof that your injury occurred. Your medical records help identify the physical injuries you’ve suffered, and also outline any psychological effects the injury has had on your life.
Is someone else negligent?
For your compensation claim in Sutton St James to be successful, someone else must be found responsible for your injury. The negligent party could be an individual, an employer, a company or organisation. Negligence can only be established if the other party has a duty of care to you.
Did the other party have a duty of care to you?
A duty of care means an individual or organisation has a legal requirement to do everything reasonably practicable to protect the health and safety of others. If the individual or organisation is found to have broken this duty, they can be held liable for your injury. For example, your employer has a duty of care to keep you safe at work. If he does not provide you with appropriate training and you are injured as a direct result of this, your employer has breached his duty of care and behaved in a negligent manner.
