Painful Personal Injury Claim
Before submitting a personal injury claim it would make sense to consider one’s eligibility to claim prior to engaging professional help. It is always a good idea to document the circumstances leading up to the incident that caused the painful personal injury. This should be done as soon as possible and if necessary, witness statements should be taken down. There is always a good chance that either you or another individual present will have a mobile phone with inbuilt camera. This is when you realise a camera phone isn’t just useful at parties. A photo of a cracked paving slab or broken stair tread could be all that’s needed to guarantee success should you pursue a personal injury claim.
Types of Injuries
It is entirely possible that you’ve suffered some form of painful personal injury at some time in the past and not been aware that a personal injury claim was possible. The types of injuries that can lead to a claim include…
- Injury from road traffic accidents
- Injury caused by medical negligence
- Injury received as a result of defective goods or services
- Injury from tripping over kerb/paving stones
You will no doubt be relieved to hear that work related accidents, a common cause of personal injury, have reduced in number since 1974 when the health and safety at work act was introduced. There has in fact been a 77% reduction in injuries that did not end in a fatality. Despite personal injury at work being a rarer occurrence than before 1974 there are still occasions when unlucky individuals find themselves on the receiving end. Workplace personal injury can be caused by all sorts of things…
- Injury from defective machinery
- Injury through lack of training
- Injury due to lack of protective clothing
When not at work we are still vulnerable to painful personal injury, sometimes without realising it. From crossing the road to catching a train to riding an escalator, we are surrounded by potential hazards. Of course life needn’t be a battlefield; it just needs the application of a little common sense. And if the unthinkable does happen and you do sustain a personal injury, a bit of common sense can come in handy when it comes to making a claim for compensation.
