Following an accident or unexpected injury, many people are able to make a claim for compensation and a significant number of claimants do go on to receive a personal injury payment award. However, in order to claim for a personal injury award, it’s essential that the injuries you sustained weren’t your fault and that they were caused by someone or something else.
Are you hoping to claim a personal injury payment award?
Although someone or something else does need to have caused your injuries if you want to make a claim for a personal injury payment award, you can actually make a claim in a variety of instances including:
Injuries at work
If your employer has failed to ensure that your working environment is safe and you suffer an injury as a result, there’s a good chance that you could be able to make a claim and obtain a personal injury payment award. If your injuries affect your ability to return to work, you may even find that a personal injury payment award enables you to pay your essential bills and maintain your lifestyle while you recover.
Injuries at school
Although all children suffer minor cuts and scrapes from time to time, some can suffer serious injuries. If your child is hurt whilst at school and it wasn’t their fault, they may be able to obtain a personal injury award for the harm that they’ve suffered. If, for example, they were hurt when they should have been supervised or they were given inappropriate materials to work with, it’s likely that they would be able to make a claim.
Injuries whilst travelling
It’s not just injuries that happen at home that can result in a personal injury payment. If you’re hurt whilst travelling or whilst on holiday, you may also find that you could make a claim and you could receive a sizeable amount of compensation.
