    Oxfordshire no win no fee* claims – is your injury eligible?

    Claiming compensation is not something many of us plan on doing, simply because we don’t ‘plan’ on having an accident. However, it can and does happen, with devastating consequences for some people; for others, the injuries are not as severe, and are injuries from which they will and do recover.

    How severe does an injury have to be in order to claim compensation?

    The injury needs to have symptoms, by which we mean that it has to be ‘bad enough’ for you to seek medical advice and treatment; in other words, it has to have an impact on you.

    For example, a trip over a cable that resulted in nothing more than an argument is not something for which you can claim, but if you tripped over the cable and damaged your knee, bruised your hand, and banged your head, you would probably seek medical help for these injuries.

    Can Oxfordshire no win no fee* claims for compensation be made for physical AND emotional injuries?

    Many people, when they suffer an accident, are not only hurt physically, but suffer an emotional impact, too. It is not unheard of for people to suffer flashbacks of the event, have trouble sleeping, and feel depressed as well as stressed or anxious about facing the same situation again. Fears can become magnified and irrational.

    In these cases, people will need the help of a medical professional, possibly seeing their doctor for medication, as well as needing counselling or other kinds of emotional ‘help’ or treatment.

    Claims can be made for these emotional ‘injuries’, too, but like physical injuries they will need to have been diagnosed by a suitably qualified medical professional.

    What else can be included in claims for compensation?

    Compensation claims are for injuries, not for damage to property such as the vehicle you were in, your bike, etc. as this is normally covered by insurance.

    However, it is recognised in law that innocent victims of accidents can not only be hurt physically and emotionally, but financially too.

    For example, not everyone is paid their salary for being off sick from work for longer than three months, which can have an adverse and negative impact on your household finances. It has been known, in extreme and severe cases, for people to lose their homes or fall behind with mortgage payments.

    Personal injury law recognises this, therefore any additional expenses that you feel you have had to pay as a result of being hurt through no fault of your own could be claimed as part of your case.
