It is an unfortunate fact that the world can be a dangerous and surprising place, and you may be shocked at the sheer number of accidents and injuries which do befall normal people going about their daily lives. Whether it be an unexpected road traffic collision, a slip, trip or fall in a public place, or an accident in the workplace due to negligence or lack of care, there is any number of ways in which a person’s life could be turned upside down by a sudden and unexpected injury.
Effects Of Unexpected Injuries
It largely goes without saying that the first major effect of an injury is that of pain to the sufferer, but it is also worth mentioning that there is a number of types of injury which can lead to chronic, long lasting pain even if the original incident appeared fairly trivial. Beyond pain, many injuries also create effects which are less easily obvious and these generally fit into two main categories; psychological and financial.
In terms of psychological effects, it is often the case that more serious injuries do lead to secondary symptoms which can include anxiety and depression and can also be just as damaging in the long term as the injury itself. When it comes to the financial sphere, injuries can put a great strain on victims through the sheer cost of medical advice and treatment, as well as the potential for a loss of earnings. When you weigh up all of these potential effects of an injury therefore, it stands to reason that if the injury was somebody else’s fault, then the victim should be able to gain some measure of recompense and fortunately they can make an injury claim.
When You Can Make An Injury Claim
A victim of an accident or injury is entitled by UK law to make an injury claim for compensation if the said accident or injury was demonstrably somebody else’s fault. This ability to make an injury claim is in place for the exact reason of allowing victims to gain the kind of recompense which was mentioned above. So, if you do believe that you may be entitled to make such a claim, it is important to find out who you can trust to handle your claim for you.
