Claiming For An Accident

 

Accidents are unplanned and can happen to anyone at anytime and in any place. It could be an injury at work, an injury caused in a traffic accident, as a result of faulty goods or services, or caused by tripping on a public pavement. It could be an injury caused by errors in hospital or a physical or psychological injury sustained by a victim in the course of a crime. In any case, accidents direct you towards personal injury law, where if you have been an innocent victim then you may be able to claim compensation.

You do not have to be of a particular age, financial standing or profession in order to make a claim; you just have to ensure that you do so within three years of the accident. You can make a claim if the accidents can direct you to another person or company who may be liable for your injury. The amount of compensation you could receive will vary depending on the extent of your injures and personal circumstances. You can receive damages for pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, damage to property, the costs of care and medical expenses and the cost of repairing a car if you have been involved in a road accident.

If the accident affects you or your property, the courts can also find that you were partially to blame. For example, if you were not wearing a seat belt in a road accident, the courts may reduce the amount of damages you receive based on your own contributing negligence. If you have been involved in personal injury accidents, we can direct you to a personal injury solicitor who will be able to assess the strength of your claim.
