10 Types of Personal Injury Claims

Here are 10 scenarios that may warrant making a personal injury claim. If any of these have happened to you, then it may be worth talking to a personal injury specialist.

1. One of the most common types of causes of personal injuries are road traffic accidents. Where another driver has been negligent and caused you an injury, a claim may be suitable.

2. Workplaces are notorious for causing injuries, with some environments more hazardous than others.

3. One thing that particularly warrants a claim is when someone suffers from an industrial disease. Examples include asbestos-related illnesses, like mesothelioma and asbestosis, and industrial deafness.

4. Whether you’re at work or out in public, if a wet floor, dodgy tile or broken paving slave causes a slip and trip, discussing your claim with a specialist could be useful.

5. Unfortunately, some people suffer fatal accidents and, in situations where they had no fault in what happened, their loved ones may be able to seek compensation.

6. Catastrophic injuries, like amputations and brain damage, have a huge impact on people’s lives and in many cases lead to strong claims.

7. Location isn’t an issue for many law firms. so if your accident took place on a package holiday, you can still look into making a claim.

8. Not all accidents lead to physical problems. Some see victims suffer psychological trauma, which can effect them for many years. Where this has happened, a claim may help recover loss of earnings.

9. The manufacturing process of any product can throw up the odd faulty item, but in most cases they never leave the factory. Where they do and cause an injury to a customer, a solicitor may be worth talking to.

10. If you’ve been involved in an accident in which you weren’t injured, but your property was damaged, you may be eligible for compensation.

To find out whether you can make a claim for compensation, speak to a personal injury specialist and discuss taking your case forward.

If you’re an employer who wants to know more about protecting yourself from claims and doing right by your staff, then talking to an employment law solicitor may be a good idea.
