There is an absolute mass of information about personal injury claims, but to start with you need to know the basic information to see if making a claim is the right way forward for you.
You have to fit the rules
The first thing you need to do is make sure you fit the rules for making a personal injury claim which are:
· You must have been in an accident that was not your fault
· In the accident you should have sustained injuries to your body or mind
· The injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention
· The accident must have happened within the last three years
If you think you fit these rules, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
The accidents you can claim for
Any accident that was not your fault can be claimed for; none of them are excluded from compensation claims. Some are more common than others though, such as:
· Road traffic accidents
· Accidents at work
· Holiday accidents
· Medical negligence
· Slips, trips and falls
· Food poisoning
· Industrial illnesses and diseases
These are just a sample of the accidents that could cause you to be injured through the actions of someone else.
The injuries you may sustain
There is a limitless list of injuries you could sustain in an accident that was not your fault, such as:
· Broken bones
· Facial injuries
· Damage to the joints
· Internal injuries
· Back and spine injuries
· Eye injuries
· Head and brain injuries
· Fatal injuries
There is no part of the body or mind that cannot sustain an injury and mean you need to make a personal injury claim.
No win no fee agreements
No win no fee agreements have been used for personal injury claims since April 2000 and in 2012, 98% of claims were financed this way.. This is because the agreement means anyone can make a claim; finances do not have to be a consideration. No money is needed to start the claim, or if the claim proves unsuccessful.
