What is meant by the term ‘Personal Injury Claim’?
‘Personal Injury’ is a term that is used to describe any type of injury which was caused to your body whether from an accident at work, a motoring accident or a trip, slip or fall. These are just a few injuries as, of course, accidents do occur in many places. The term personal injury is also used to describe any illnesses or injuries resulting from clinical negligence; or from workplace and industrial incidents that affect the victim’s health.
If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence you may be able to make a personal injury claim yourself. To do this you need to employ the services of one of the injury solicitors in Strathcarron although there may not be too wide a choice. However, did you know that there are also national alternatives available to you?
Injury experts in Strathcarron: What could I gain by making a personal injury claim?
Victims of personal injury have many different reasons for wanting to make a personal injury claim. The main reason is often to claim a monetary compensation for the pain and suffering they have gone through as a result of their accident. Often, compensation can also be recovered to reimburse any expenses connected to the personal injury such as lost earnings while the injured person is off sick, or medical expenses.
Another common reason that spurs people into making a compensation claim is to obtain a sense of justice; be it for themselves or for someone close to them. A Judge finding in the injured person’s favour or obtaining an admission of liability from the person at fault can sometimes make all the difference to the injured person or their family who then feel able to move on with the rest of their lives.
Some people who have suffered a personal injury make their personal injury claim as an attempt to change procedures so that others won’t be injured in the same way in the future.
