Getting to grips with injury statistics
Recent official statistics from the Department of Transport show that, for a lot of people, roads are getting safer. Except for cyclists. Although Boris Johnson has been pushing himself as a champion of cycling in London, the tendency to cycle safely has decreased since he came into office. If you need help and don’t want to be just another injury statistic, then you have the right to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Take our 30-second test to see if you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. Don’t be part of injury statistics.
Personal injury compensation and injury statistics
Personal injury compensation claims can be supported by injury statistics. If a lot of people have been hurt in a certain way, then it starts to establish that the activity is one that might be a high- risk. It could also show that a person or organisation is negligent, and fair amounts of people are being injured as a result of the activity.
If you are going to make a claim, then you need to prove that the other person was responsible for your injury. Evidence is key to building a strong claim:
- Make a detailed description of what has happened.
- Take photographs, lots of good clear images will help make a case. If your injury has come about as a result of negligence on the part of an organisation that should have supplied a particular work surface for a sports match for example, then repairs might be made at a later date. Then when you get to making your claim for compensation, the evidence might be lost.
- Take a note of all the contact details of any witnesses and other people who have suffered in a similar way.
