What types of personal injury claims are there?
If you have been in an accident, don’t neglect your right to make a compensation claim.
It is common for those that have been injured in accidents, especially through no fault of their own, to feel overwhelmed and at a loss as to where to turn. This can also result in a great deal of confusion regarding the different types of personal injury claims available, and who can make them.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re committed to ensuring everyone gets the advice they need, and to clarifying the claims process so that all eligible accident victims receive the money they are due. There are a few basic Hart claims that you should know about:
Claims for workplace injuries – your employer has a legal obligation to adhere to health and safety regulations to mitigate the risk of injuries. If they fail to do this and you become injured, you could be within your rights to make a claim for common accidents such as falls from a height, injuries sustained using machinery and more.
Claims for road traffic accidents – if you have been injured in a car, bus or taxi, or on a motorcycle or bike or even as a pedestrian, you could make a claim for your injuries.
Public liability claims – if you have slipped, tripped, fallen or otherwise suffered an accident in a public place such as a bank, shopping centre or car park, you could be eligible to claim for the injuries you have sustained.
Clinical negligence claims – if a medical practitioner has neglected to provide adequate care and you have been made to suffer as a result, you could be entitled to compensation.
Industrial illness claims – conditions and illnesses can develop as a result of working in unsafe conditions, such as RSI, Vibration White Finger, industrial hearing loss, cancers and asbestos-related illnesses. If employer negligence lead to the onset of these or any other illness, you could make a compensation claim with our help.
In terms of the injuries for which you can make Hart claims for compensation, you can seek money in damages for everything from a fractured bone to a serious head, neck or spinal cord injury.
