A compensation claim in Tong can be filed only by someone who has sustained an injury through absolutely no personal fault. The first thing you need to figure out, when considering whether to make a personal injury claim, is whether you indeed qualify for it or not. This is a simple thing to do as long as you know the most basic things on how personal injury claims work.
As we said, the most important thing is that someone else was to blame for your injury. It is less important, in this first phase, whether this “someone” was a person, a public institution or a company.
- In the case of a road traffic accident, for example, it can be a person. Another driver that made a mistake in traffic and collided with your car, resulting in you getting injured.
- An accident at work, however, might be the fault of the employer. If this is the case, if, for example, they failed to provide a worker with training for the use of heavy machinery and this resulted in the employee being injured, they could and should file a personal injury claim against their employer. Such an accident can result in them being incapable to work for a while. The wages they lose during this period of time can be reimbursed through the compensation claim in Tong, which reduces the impact of the accident on their lives.
- When it comes to slips, trips and falls, they are usually public liability incidents. If an old lady has tripped on the pavement and broken a hip, she can file a personal injury claim against the local council, as long as she can prove that the pavements were not adequately maintained, thus being an injury hazard.
