What is a Personal Injury Claim?
Have you been involved in an accident that was not your fault?
Accidents happen. Often these accidents occur through no fault of our own. If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, you may have a claim against the person or company responsible for the accident.
Personal Injury Claims
If you have been injured in an accident, and you weren’t to blame, then you may be able to claim compensation. There are three essential elements to a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim arises because a person owed you a duty of care that duty wasn’t met, and you were injured or suffered a loss as a result of their action or inaction and there is a clear link between their behavior and your loss/injury. In addition, time may be a vital consideration. The law limits the time for making personal injury claims to 3 years, so don’t hesitate in making your claim.
The law imposes a duty on everyone not to harm those around them. As well as an obligation on individuals, this obligation is imposed on companies and other bodies (e.g. local authorities) who may have many people under their control at any one time. The obligation on companies etc is stricter, meaning they are bound to take more precautions to ensure your wellbeing than individuals are. If a person or company has not met this obligation, and you have been injured or suffered a loss as a result, then you may be due compensation.
This compensation can be sought by making a personal injury claim.
