There are many different types of accidents where, through the fault of another person or company, a person may suffer an injury.
While many of these accidents are minor, there are cases where a person may suffer from serious and lasting injury. Whether these injuries are physical or psychological, compensation can often be sought for personal injury.
The most common form of accidents involving negligence or personal injury include car accidents, work accidents or accidents in public places including shopping centres, fitness centres, restaurants or another person’s home.
The owner or tenant of a premise has a duty of care to ensure that their premises are kept safe for use by those who legally access them. If you feel that this duty of care has been broken, you may be entitled to compensation.
A claim may cover medical expenses, domestic assistance, loss of income or future economic loss. If your injury is particularly serious, you may also be able to claim compensation for pain and suffering.
If you have suffered an injury from an accident or someone else’s negligence you should obtain legal advice as soon as possible. In many cases the law imposes time limits on claiming for personal injury. It is important to receive legal advice from a qualified legal compensation specialist to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you may be entitled to.
