The term “personal injury” is a legal term which refers to a variety of injuries and kinds of accidents. The term refers not only to your body parts, such as your arms and legs but also to psychological traumas. For instance, if as a result of a car accident which was not your fault, you now have a terrible phobia of being in or driving a car, you might be eligible for a personal injury claim. Simply call our Personal Injury Solicitors free on 08000 488 884.
The various kinds of injuries and their causes are too numerous to list. They range from a basic car accident to medical negligence to asbestos exposure to mental distress. Each of these and many more can be referred to as personal injuries and their effects can be both short and long term.
If you have suffered a personal injury through no fault of your own, you may be eligible to claim two types of compensation known as general damages and special damages.
What are general and special damages?
Who can claim?
If you have suffered an injury as a result of the accident caused due to someone else’s fault or negligence, you can make a personal injury claim.
If a person under 18 years old makes a personal injury claim, the court will appoint the so-called ‘litigation friend’ who claims on behalf of that person.
In the case of fatal accident claims, if the sole breadwinner of the family dies, his financial dependents or personal representatives can claim for loss of dependency.
How do you make a claim?
First, we need to know some important details about your accident, such as where and how it happened, and about the injuries you have suffered.
If you received any medical treatment or if there were any witnesses to the accident, we’ll ask for these details along with the copies of any photos taken at the scene of the accident.
A No Win, No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors that specialises in personal injury claims will review your case basing on the details you will provide, and assess how successful your work accident claim is likely to be.
If you require medical treatment and/or rehabilitation support, it is vital to contact the personal injury solicitors as soon as possible so we can assist with your rehabilitation timely.
How long does it take to conclude the claim?
How one proceeds in making a claim depends on the circumstances of the injury or what led to the injury. Each case is unique and needs to be handled as such.
It is difficult to give an exact duration time for a potential claim, but it is our job to make sure that it proceeds as efficiently and swiftly as possible. A minor injury claim, for example, will generally take less time whereas a more severe injury claim may take longer. For instance, a claim for an uncomplicated traffic accident might be concluded within six months.
