In the last three years, have you been injured as a result of an accident? Was it someone else’s fault? If so, you could be entitled to compensation.
How does personal injury occur?
There are many causes of personal injury. You could be injured at work or perhaps it was a slip, trip or fall that caused your injury. There are many ways in which you could become injured, but if it’s someone else’s fault, you can put in a claim.
What are the effects of personal injury?
You may be in a lot of pain, of course, but there are other effects, many people become inconvenienced. If they had a road traffic accident, for example, they might not have a car and now need to rely on public transport to get around.
People suffering from a personal injury also have to attend doctors’ appointments and take medication. Travel and prescriptions cost money, and this can be difficult to find if you have had to take time off work sick while you recover from your injury.
