Claiming compensation following an accident is something which a number of people fail to do because they are unaware of the eligibility criteria as well as the process for claiming. This article will take a look at three of the most common reasons why people make a personal injury claim, as well as give you more information about the claims process.
- Road accidents
Unfortunately, road accidents are common whether you’re travelling in a car, on a bike or even as a pedestrian. If the accident wasn’t your fault and resulted in a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Slips, trips or falls
Whether you’re in a shop, a restaurant, a club or other premises, it is up to the owner to ensure that the area is safe and that any unsafe areas are marked, such as spills or damaged floors. If you suffer a slip, trip or fall as a result of negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
- Accident at work
It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that all work areas are safe and that regular health and safety checks are carried out. If you suffer an injury as a result of an accident caused by a failure to make the working environment safe, you may be entitled to compensation from your employer.
