When we are injured as the result of an accident, the last thing on our minds may be to make a claim for personal injury compensation. However, if the accident was caused through no fault of your own and the injuries you have sustained as a result mean that it has left you unable to work, then you may be left with little choice.
However, for many people making a claim for compensation, it is not just about the money you may receive. It is also about seeking redress and acknowledging the injury that was caused to you and its consequences, by the person responsible.
What types of accident can I claim for?
Any accident that caused injury to you, through no fault of your own, may be claimed for. The accident must have occurred within the last 3 years in order to be claimed for. Typical accidents include:
- slips, trips and falls
- workplace accidents
- road traffic accidents
- pedestrian accidents
- burns and scalds
- medical negligence
- industrial accidents
- food poisoning
- holiday accidents
In addition, certain industrial-related illnesses may be eligible for personal injury compensation claims beyond the 3-year deadline, including Vibration White Finger (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome), asbestosis and mesothelioma.
