Making an injury claim in Renfrew
By raising a personal injury claim in Renfrew workers and residents (just like workers and residents from anywhere in the UK) are hoping to gain financial compensation for being subjected to some sort of pain, discomfort or disability that has been caused through someone else’s negligence. The problem is that even what can at first appear to be an innocuous injury, can have severe ramifications. Even things like mental stress can be considered as a form of injury, especially if that stress stops the sufferer from fulfilling a social or professional duty. These sorts of injuries usually come under the umbrella of psychological injuries, and can be just as debilitating as their physical counterparts.
Eligibility for making an injury claim in Renfrew
The one thing to bear in mind is that for any injury claim to “hold water” it must:
- Have happened in the last 3 years
- Must be the fault of a third party
Whether we’re talking about an injury claim in Renfrew that residents make, or any other residents of the UK, the same applies. Whilst Scottish law does have some differences from British law, the 2 points listed above are common to both sets of laws.
Psychological injuries: Causes and Symptoms
Psychological injury is in actual fact more prevalent than people may realise. All too often, any type of physical injury is associated with some sort of psychological distress. This distress can often affect people’s lifestyles, professional lives, and their overall self-confidence. If this distress prevents sufferers from attending work, it can lead to reduction or loss of income, and even termination of employment. Even witnessing an accident or incident that injures others can cause some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder, and may not manifest itself until sometime after the incident.
