Accidents of all kinds take place throughout the United Kingdom every single year. However, many people aren’t sure whether or not their case would allow them to get compensation for the injuries they suffered.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that the claims process isn’t something many people are familiar with. So we’ve provided some examples of injury claims to give you some more insight into the claims process.
Examples of injury claims for accidents
In most cases, an accident victim who suffered injury due to another person’s negligence within the last three years is legally entitled to make a claim for compensation against the person who was to blame for the accident.
As such, you could make an injury claim for road accidents if you were using the road in some capacity, and you were injured because another road user failed to pay attention. As with all injury claims, you would have to provide evidence for your claim, which could include insurance records, medical records, photographs of the site of the accident, and more.
If you were exposed to an industrial illness as part of your work due to unacceptable working conditions, then you could make a claim for compensation. With this type of injury claim, instead of being required to make your claim within three years of the accident itself, you have three years from the date you were diagnosed with an industrial disease.
If you suffered a workplace injury because your employer was negligent in taking reasonable precautions to ensure your health and safety, then you could pursue an injury claim for compensation because they failed to observe their duty of care towards you as an employee.
