    Injury claim following an accident


    Injury claim following an accident

    You may want to make an injury claim following an accident you have had in the last three years. If the accident was not your fault in any way, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You can also make an injury claim following a diagnosis of an illness for which someone else’s negligence was responsible. This could be for a work-related illness or food poisoning, for example.

    Injury claim following an accident in a public place

    You may have been injured in an accident in a public place, such as the street, a cinema, restaurant or hotel. If you sprained your ankle badly after inadvertently stepping into a pothole as you crossed the road, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority which is responsible for the maintenance of roads and streets.

    In most other public places, you can make an injury claim following an accident against the owner of those premises. If you can, you should take photographs of the scene of the accident and of your injuries, as these can be used as supporting evidence for your claim.

    If your accident took place in a shop, you should inform a member of staff and have them log it in the accident book (which all public premises should have) along with the names and contact details of any witnesses. You should then seek immediate medical attention so that the extent and severity of your injuries can be assessed. You will need a medical report if you make a personal injury compensation claim.

    You will need to keep receipts of all the expenses you incurred solely as a result of your injuries. For example, you may have broken your leg and be unable to drive. If you had to take a taxi to the doctor’s surgery, you could claim back the cost of the fare.
