How can a personal injury claim help me?
A personal injury claim is made against a person or organisation that was at fault for your injury. To win your claim for compensation, your personal injury solicitor will have to prove that a third party was liable for your accident, and that you have suffered injuries or illness as a result.
Where road accidents are concerned, the third party is usually another driver, or the employer if you suffer an accident at work. If the third party and their insurers deny liability, your personal injury solicitor will need to provide evidence to support your claim, which could include police reports, witness statements and photographs.
Usually, a claim will be made against the third party´s insurance company, but you can still claim compensation from an uninsured driver or a hit and run driver.
If you have an accident at work, which was caused by the negligence of your employer, you will be covered by compulsory insurance. You must claim against the third party´s insurance, even if the accident was caused by a friend or family member. Remember –that´s the reason for insurance. If an accident happens in someone else´s home, it should be covered by household insurance.
When third party liability has been established, your personal injury solicitor will have to prove the value of your claim by obtaining independent medical evidence to prove the extent of your personal injury, and the long term effect they may have on you. The solicitor will also gather information about your financial losses and expenses.
There is more to claiming personal injury compensation than meets the eye, and you need to contact a personal injury solicitor for expert advice and help if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer an accident or illness through no fault of your own.
The pain and suffering caused by many accidents can be long lasting and not only physical but emotional and mental affect. Families and friends can be affected as well, and the mental anguish for them is almost as traumatic as it is for you. You are entitled to claim for loss of earnings as well as compensation for physical injuries and emotional distress. The amount of personal injury compensation you receive obviously varies, depending on the severity of your injuries and the effect the accident has had on your life.
