When you think of a personal injury, you may envision someone slipping and falling on a wet surface. Although this is definitely a type of personal injury, it by no means characterises all personal injuries.
In fact, personal injuries do not even have to be physical injuries. If, for example, you are involved in a catastrophic road traffic accident in Waveney, you may have grounds for a Waveney accident claim for psychological stress.
Making stress free claims in Waveney
At the heart of all personal injury lawsuits is fault, and when you file a claim against a guilty party, you will need to prove that your injury resulted from someone else’s actions.
If, for example, you wish to make a claim for a Waveney accident at work, you must be able to prove that your employer owed you a duty of care. As your employer has a legal responsibility to protect your health and safety, you will be able to call upon this area of the law to show that your employer had an obligation to keep you safe from harm.
Following proving that your employer owed you a duty care, you will need to show that your employer breached this duty. If your employer failed to do something a reasonable employer would have done, for example, he failed to warn you about a slippery floor, you should be able to demonstrate that your employer put you at risk of harm.
If making a claim sounds complicated, there’s no need to worry. We can handle your claim for you so that you’re able to make easy and stress free claims in Waveney.
Assuming that you are successful in proving that your employer breached his or her legal duties, you will need to show that your injury occurred as a consequence of the breach. In simple terms, you will need to demonstrate that the slippery floor caused your slip and fall and that your slip and fall caused you to sustain an injury. To do this, you will need to provide evidence in support of your claim.
