    Personal injury claims advice in Devon Q&A

    Here are some of the most frequent questions we are asked about persona injury and compensation.

    What is a personal injury?

    A personal injury is any injury inflicted to a person, rather than property. For the most part, these injuries are physical, for example a broken bone, a head wound, or a more serious injury as a result of a car accident, or industrial accident in the workplace.

    Are these injuries always physical?

    No, injuries re not always physical. Personal injury can also be made up of emotional and mental injuries. The same parameters still apply, however. You still need to have visited a doctor in relation to these injuries and your accident still needs to have occurred within the last three years.

    What is compensation and how is it worked out?

    Compensation is the thing that is awarded in recognition of wrongdoing, pain and suffering. There are two main types of compensation, general damages which are paid in recognition of pain and distress that’s suffered and special damages. Special damages are paid in recognition of financial loss, such as loss of earnings, prescription charges and childcare in relation to your case.
