No one really wants to have to file a personal injury claim, but if you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault and have suffered as a result, the compensation that you may be able to claim could make a huge difference to your quality of life. As more and more people across the country hold those guilty of negligence to account, a clear pattern in the type of claims made becomes noticeable.
So, what are the top three most common personal injury claims, and do you have a case of your own to pursue?
1. Car accidents
Due to the sheer numbers of cars on the roads, it’s probably unsurprising that car accidents lead to the most personal injury claims. If you’ve been hit by a car or involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should be able to claim compensation, so call our 24/7 free legal advice line to find out more.
2. Motorcycle accidents
Though there are fewer motorcycle riders than car drivers on the road, they are actually more likely to be involved in accidents. When motorcycle accidents occur, riders are more likely to be seriously hurt. Often accidents happen when car drivers fail to look out for the motorcyclist, and many accidents happen at junctions or when changing lanes.
3. Trips, slips and falls
The third most common personal injury accident is a trip, slip or fall. These mostly occur in places with poorly maintained flooring, and can result in anything from a sprained wrist to a life-threatening injury. If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall recently, it’s always best to visit the doctor and get it checked out to ensure that you aren’t seriously injured.
