If you have been hurt or injured, you may want to make a claim for pain and suffering compensation. Although many people are eager to make a claim following an injury, you will need to prove that your injuries weren’t your fault in order to have any chance of building a successful case.
Providing that you can show that your injuries were caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a claim for pain and suffering compensation. You could obtain a significant payout, depending on the type and severity of the injuries you sustained.
Although people often think that you can only make a claim for pain and suffering compensation in certain situations, there are actually numerous instances in which you could make a successful claim. Claimants often make a claim following a variety of incidents, including the following examples.
Slips, trips and falls
If you fall or trip, you may suffer serious injuries. Although some falls will only hurt your pride, some can have very serious consequences such as broken bones, internal injuries or concussion. If the accident wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a claim for pain and suffering compensation with help from our injury lawyers.
If you’re hurt while doing your job and it wasn’t your fault, you may find that your employer is responsible and that they could be liable to pay you compensation. If they didn’t ensure that the workplace was safe or didn’t provide the appropriate equipment with which to work, then you could be successful in making a claim against them.
Injuries whilst out and about
If you’re hurt in a public area and it wasn’t your fault, you could find that your local council are responsible for the harm you suffered. If they don’t maintain the area and ensure it’s safe, you may be able to pursue them for compensation if you are injured.
