Common Personal Injury Claims

Common Claims

Sustaining a personal injury is a difficult thing to go through. If you suffered a slip, trip or fall as a result of someone else – whether it’s on their property or due to their actions – then you may be able to claim for compensation.

Public liability law covers personal injury claims, which can arise in public places or on council property. At Injury and Accident Lawyers, we can cover you for a range of personal injury claims and offer you advice and service moving forward.

Our personal injury lawyers can get you duly compensated for any kind of loss of earnings or difficulty faced, and we can get you back on your feet again after what can potentially be a difficult time.

Most Common Personal Injury Claims Made

Vehicle Accidents

Many of the personal injury claims we see involve vehicle accidents where there has been a claim of negligence made for injuries sustained while driving. If you have been involved in a traffic incident and sustained an injury, then you need to get in touch with our team to find out how to proceed. You might have whiplash, broken bones or some other worse injury as a driver, a cyclist, a pedestrian or a passenger in a vehicle. No matter what your case may be, we can help you get on the right path.

Work Accidents

Being at work should mean that you are safe and not at risk of any accident or injury, but people still often get injured in their workplace. So if you are injured at work, you may be able to claim for compensation for any personal injury. Incidents that may be covered include slips and falls and cases like back injuries that have been aggravated by improper lifting or hazard management.

Public Places

Picture this: Walking through the shopping centre, you fail to spot a patch of water on the tiles. Before you know it, you’ve slipped over, banging your arm on a nearby bench and fracturing it! You can’t work for a month – but what do you about lost wages and other complications arising from your injury? You come and see us for advice on a personal injury claim.

Common claims that people make are for broken bones, head and neck injuries, sprains and injuries that may not be immediately apparent following an incident but possibly flare up over time.

Personal Injury Checklist

If you have been injured and suspect that it is the responsibility of someone else, take a look at these quick questions:

  • Was someone else the cause of your injury?
  • Did you require medical treatment and ongoing care for your injury?
  • Could your injury have been prevented?

When you speak to our team at Injury and Accident Lawyers, you’ll get comprehensive advice on how to seek compensation for past and future economic losses, and potential expenses that you may have to pay. You may even be able to seek a lump sum payout if the injury is severe.
