Making a West Lindsey compensation claim is a great way to keep yourself afloat in the time following a serious accident which has caused you long term injuries. You can only make a claim for compensation if you can prove that another person was at fault for your injuries, and your claim is only likely to be successful if you can prove that your injuries needed medical attention. Here are some of the types of injuries that you can claim for, as long as they are serious enough to affect your life in some way.
Head and back injuries
These are very serious types of injuries, for the most part, and are injuries that are more likely to be viewed seriously when you make your claim. However there are, of course, various levels of injury, even with the head and back, it is worth speaking to your doctor and getting a full medical assessment to prove that you have been injured significantly.
Broken bones and fractures
Again, these are usually considered serious injuries, but a broken bone could just as easily be a tiny bone in your foot as a major leg bone, and you will only be able to get compensation for injuries which are going to make life difficult for you for a time, or will at least require medical attention. It may be worth discussing this with an injury lawyer before you move forward with a claim.
This is one of the most common types of injury for people to claim for, and even though it may not be a very dangerous injury, it can cause you pain and discomfort for a little while to come. Ask your doctor for a medical assessment which underlines the type of pain that you are suffering from as a result of your accident.
