What is a personal injury?
If you receive a personal injury then you could be entitled to receive compensation. This is particularly true if a team of Ealing accident claim solicitors can demonstrate that your accident was the fault of someone else. But what exactly is a personal injury?
A personal injury can be defined in a number of ways, and is not limited to purely physical injuries. While you could claim for a broken bone, whiplash or a laceration, you can also make claims for a psychological injury or illness and other conditions caused by the actions of other people.
If you are unsure whether or not you could be entitled to make a claim for your specific personal injury, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Our advisors will be able to tell you quickly and easily whether or not one of our Ealing accident claim solicitors could help you make a claim. Alternatively, you can take our 30-second test and see if your personal injury is among the things that we can make a claim for.
It may be hard at first to consider what might be a personal injury, however these can cover a wide variety of conditions.
For example, if you have been involved in an accident, you may suffer from a condition known as post traumatic stress. This can leave you experiencing anxiety, insomnia or even physical symptoms such as headaches and nausea. Experienced Ealing accident claim solicitors would be able to make a claim for this condition alongside the claim for physical injuries you have endured as a result of your accident.
You can also make a claim against your employer if you are experiencing work-based stress. Your Ealing accident claim solicitors will need to demonstrate that your stress is directly caused by conditions at work and that your employer has not done enough to support you. This can involve looking at employment records such as appraisal meetings in which you may have discussed the need for additional support or training, or raised concerns over staff shortages or the pressure to achieve bonuses and KPIs.
Psychological injuries can be just as serious as physical ones, if not more so. This is because physical injuries are easy to diagnose and often receive treatment earlier than psychological ones.
