Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?

 Last week we brought you the news that in 2014, only 25% of people who suffered an injury through an accident that wasn’t their fault made a claim for compensation, with a large majority stating they didn’t believe their injury was bad enough, or their claim wasn’t strong enough.

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.  For this reason we have put together a guide to help you establish whether you could make a claim for compensation after an injury.

In simple terms, if you have been seriously injured as a result of the negligence of another person you should be able to make a personal injury claim.

Some other points to consider after an accident include:

Negligence

If a person’s lack of care causes you harm or contributes to an accident then it can be considered negligence. When making a personal injury case you must be able to prove that someone else has failed to act with ordinary and reasonable care in order to be held responsible for your injuries.

Serious injury

If negligence causes a serious injury, then that person should be compensated for their loss. The Serious Injury Site deals with injuries including:

  • Head & brain injury
  • Amputation
  • Neck & spinal injury
  • Fractured bones
  • Ear & hearing
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Fatal accident

To find out more, visit our ‘types of serious injury’ section.

Damages

If an injury has directly resulted in damages then the injured party can claim to recover these expenses.

Damages could include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

If a serious injury has occurred through no fault of your own, it is paramount that you make a claim for financial compensation in order to help get your life on track by having the financial stability to cover all future medical expenses.

Nobody would ever wish to be injured and at Express Solicitors we believe that financial compensation is only one of the many steps involved towards making a full recovery. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured then get in touch with us today for accurate claim advice.
