Injury claim in Grimsby


If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, you may be considering making an injury claim in Grimsby. Alternatively, you may have been diagnosed with an occupational disease or work-related illness and be thinking about making a personal injury claim in Grimsby against your employer. If that is so, you may wonder how best to do this.

Although you usually have three years in which to file a claim after the date of your accident, the sooner you do it the better, as some claims take years to resolve if they have to go through the courts.

Injury claim in Grimsby

You can make an injury claim in Grimsby if you can prove that your illness or accident was the result of another person’s negligence. However, in some circumstances (such as accidents aboard boats and planes) you only have two years in which to file a claim. This is because these accidents are governed by international conventions.

What is compensation?

You can be awarded two kinds of compensation. The first is general damages, which are awarded for the pain, suffering and distress caused by your injury, and for loss of amenity. Loss of amenity may be permanent or temporary, and is given if you can no longer do something which you used to do. For example, if you were a keen tennis player before the accident but can no longer play, compensation can be awarded.

Secondly, special damages are awarded so that you are in the same financial position as you were before your accident and injury. You will need to keep all receipts for expenses you incurred because of your injury so that you can recoup your losses.

Costs for medical treatment and expenses can be claimed, as can loss of earnings if you had to take time off work. If you can no longer work, this will be factored into the calculations of the amount of compensation you receive. You may also be awarded compensation if you can no longer work in your original job but change position; you may be entitled to compensation for loss of what is called congenial employment.

If you suffered a life-changing injury, then you could be awarded compensation to cover the cost of future care, modifying your home and medical expenses, including those for any equipment which you may need to help you with everyday tasks.
