    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    What is personal injury compensation?

    Personal injury compensation is a sum of money which you are entitled to when the actions or negligence of a third party lead to any incident which is injurious to you, such as a road traffic accident, slip, trip or fall, accident at work, or a case of medical negligence.

    What injurious incidents can I claim compensation for?

    There are many different scenarios in which you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. The areas we deal with most frequently fall into one of the following categories:

    • Accidents at work
      All employers have a duty of care to their employees. If they fail to take adequate health and safety precautions and allow working practices which are potentially injurious to their workers, they could face compensation claims in the event of a worker suffering an accident or any work-related illness.
    • Road traffic accident
      If a motorist drives in such a way as to cause an accident which proves injurious to any other driver, motorcyclist, cyclist or pedestrian, then the victim is entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
    • Slips, Trips and Falls
      This is one of the most common types of accident. If somebody is responsible for a hazard which is injurious to another person, then they are liable for that person’s injuries. Examples include wet floors without adequate warning signs and uneven pavements.
    • Medical negligence
      When medical professionals make errors, the results for the patient can be gravely injurious. If medical staff misdiagnose a condition or injury, or otherwise act in any way which causes unnecessary pain and suffering to a patient, they could face a claim for compensation.

    Am I eligible to make a claim?

    If you’ve been injured in any of the incidents described above through somebody else’s fault, then you may have a valid claim for compensation provided:

    • Your injury happened in the last three years
      There are some exceptions to this time limit, such as in the case of children under the age of 18, the mentally ill, or sufferers of industrial diseases.
    • You required medical attention
      Your medical records will be crucial evidence in any claim for compensation. If you did not visit a doctor then it is very difficult to establish the severity and cause of your injuries.

    If you are unsure whether your injury will be legally viewed as somebody else’s fault, contact us and our team will be pleased to advise whether you have a valid claim.
