4 Most Common Injury Claims

If you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it can have a serious impact on your life.

We understand that after an accident, many people don’t consider a personal injury lawsuit because they aren’t sure whether or not they would have a case. There are a number of situations however, where you’d be perfectly within your rights to make a claim.

To help you establish whether you could make a claim for compensation, read on for our guide to the top 4 most common injury claims.

Accidents at work

According to HSE (Health and Safety Executive) 274,000 people are seriously injured at work each year, and 241 suffer fatal injuries. All employers have a duty to keep staff safe, whilst providing suitable equipment and training, however workers are still injured every day in accidents that could have been easily prevented.

Road traffic accident

It is estimated that around 80,000 people are seriously injured on Britain’s roads each year, with a huge proportion caused by driver negligence. Being involved in a road traffic accident can be a life changing and traumatic experience for anyone and could leave you with injuries from mild bruising or whiplash to serious, life-altering head and spinal injuries.

Common injuries caused by road traffic accidents include:

Medical negligence

Medical negligence describes improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a healthcare professional. It occurs when medical intervention in the treatment of the patient has directly contributed to deterioration in their condition. Medical negligence claims can be extremely technical and complex, so it is essential that you receive legal advice from a specialist solicitor, which we are able to provide.

Slips and trips

Slips and trips are one of the most common causes of major injury claims. Everyone has a part to play when it comes to preventing slips and trips, from employers to hospitals, schools and the council. If they fail in doing so and you are injured as a result then you could be compensated for personal damages suffered.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of any of these circumstances then get in touch with Express Solicitors today for accurate claim advice.
