    Injury claims examples

    There are many, many different types of accidents for which you can claim personal injury compensation.

    Common injury claims examples

    These include:

    • Trips and slips, whether you have fallen on a wet and slippery floor or tripped over a paving stone that is not flush with those around it
    • A road traffic accident, whether you are a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist or another road user who is hurt
    • Workplace accidents, whether you are working in an office, a factory or outdoors
    • Industrial diseases, such as vibration white finger and asbestosis
    • Medical accidents or negligence.

    Whichever type of injury claims examples you think applies to you, in order to claim compensation:

    • The accident must have been someone else’s fault
    • You must have received medical attention
    • The accident must have happened within the last three years, unless you were a child at the time or you are suffering from an industrial disease, in which case you have longer.

    These points make up the 30-second test on the Accident Advice Helpline website. This test is designed to show whether or not you are entitled to make a claim and work out how much compensation you could be due. No one can say exactly how much you will receive, but using information from other injury claims examples like yours, it is possible to estimate the general size of the payout. It is also impossible to guarantee how long your case will take.

    Accident Advice Helpline was established in the year 2000. We were set up to help the little guy win compensation following accidents that had been caused by someone else.
