What constitutes a personal injury?
‘Personal injury’ means a physical or psychological injury, illness or disease. They include, but are not limited to injuries sustained in an accident:
- At work
- On the roads
- In a public building, such as a slip, trip or fall
So let’s look a little closer at each of these categories.
Personal injury accident claim in Copeland – at work
Your employer is legally obliged to have liability insurance to cover circumstances such as these. They may also have an accident book at your workplace in which the incident should be recorded.
You may want to write down exactly what happened whilst events are still fresh in your mind. Additionally, if you can take a few photos of the scene of your accident, it would help your case should you decide to make a compensation claim.
A road traffic accident claim
Many of the claims we deal with relate to an accident on the roads, and often involve serious injuries. We also process a lot of claims for whiplash, but however serious your injury, you should receive medical treatment at the time of the accident if you want to claim compensation.
A slip, trip or fall claim with Accident Advice Helpline
The slip, trip or fall may have been at work, or in a public space or building. Whatever the location, an accident like this can cause serious long-term health problems. It is easy to damage your neck and back if you fall, and tripping over a loose tile or slipping on a wet floor can have equally serious results.
