When you are injured in an accident it can affect your life in many ways. Constant pain or disability may affect your ability to work, enjoy sport, go dancing or play with your children. The law compensates people who suffer as a result of someone else’s negligence, and there is special legislation that protects people who are injured at work when no-one was negligent.
It is crucial that you consult with us as soon as possible to discuss your claim so we can help you identify if you have a case.
We have provided a handy checklist of steps to complete if you have just been injured
If your claim is successful you may be compensated for your losses including:
- Income or earnings that you have already lost, and any loss you will experience in the future
- Treatment expenses that you have already paid for and any treatment you will need in the future (including surgery and physio) and any equipment you need to live with your injury
- A lump sum of “general damages” to compensate you for the things you cannot put a price on: pain, stress, not being able to do your usual sports or hobbies, and the strain on your relationships with your partner, family or friends.
- The time friends and family have cared for you while you weren’t able to care for yourself
