What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is a situation whereby someone has incurred some damage to their body or mind as a result of an accident or unplanned event. A personal injury can take many forms ranging from understated to dramatic. One form of personal injury is repetitive strain injury, which although seems understated, can have grievous effects on the injured. A personal injury, at the other end of the scale, can include amputations as a result of car accidents.

A personal injury can also be a disease or illness, or a psychological injury or illness rather than just a physical injury. A personal injury could even result in death. Personal injury claims can vary depending on the type of accident you have had. Negligence in health and safety from employers, drivers, councils or those in retail and public sectors etc can lead to personal injuries. If you are injured due to the negligence on someone else part in any of these areas, you may be entitled to injury compensation.

A more detailed example of where personal injuries could happen is an injury at work. This includes work-related illnesses such as a disease a psychological illness caused by stress at work an injury caused in a traffic accident an injury received as a result of faulty goods or services an injury caused if you slip or trip over a paving stone a psychological illness suffered as a result of abuse as a child an injury caused by errors in hospital treatment or by vaccinations a physical or psychological injury sustained by a victim in the course of a crime. If you have suffered a personal injury, or if you are acting on behalf of someone who has died because of a personal injury, you may want to consider making a complaint to the person or organization you believe was responsible for the injuries. You may want to make a claim for compensation to cover losses you have suffered as a result of the injury. If there are any immediate financial problems arising because of the injury, for example, you are unable to work. Accidents, injuries and falls can happen to anyone at any time. It is your legal and civil right to make an accident claim and get your life back on track as soon as possible.
