Personal Injury Compensation Accident Claims

May 16, 2008
It has been estimated that more than three million people are injured every year due to personal injury accidents that should have been avoided. These accidents could occur on the road, at work, in a public place, a slip trip or fall or due to medical negligence. All of these are known as personal injury and if they occurred through no fault of your own then you could be entitled to compensation. In more cases then none these accidents do occur due to the negligence of another person.

More and more people are now realising their civil and legal right to claim for compensation after an accident that was caused through no fault of their own. This is thanks to the introduction of the no win no fee claims, which mean you can claim for compensation with no cost to you. Every year a colossal number of people are left hurt and injured due to the fact that someone else put their welfare in jeopardy.

Personal injury is a term that refers to the specific injury that is caused to you as a result of an accident that has occurred to you due to the carelessness of another person. Examples of personal injury are:

* Whiplash Injury
* Back Injury
* Repetitive Strain Injury
* Cervical Spine Injury
* Leg injury
* Wrist/arm injury
* Industrial diseases
* Loss of sight/hearing
* Broken/fractured bones
* Torn ligaments
* Dislocations

These name merely just a few of the physical personal injuries that you could suffer after becoming involved in an accident; however what many people don't realise is that personal injury doesn't just refer to the physical injury that you may be suffering, it also refers to psychological injuries, which could include post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety/panic attacks, abuse and anger. These are just a few examples of both the physical and psychological injuries that you may be suffering from as the direct result of an accident that should have been avoided.

By claiming for compensation after suffering harm due to aspects such as the ones named above you will be able to cover expenses such as medical expenses, any loss of earnings that you will encounter as well as compensation for your initial injuries. Personal injury law was put in place to compensation victims of personal injury accidents and it is there to protect you after suffering accidents.

If you do decide that you wish to pursue a compensation claim it is essential that you speak to a personal injury solicitor. By doing this it allows an expert to assess your claim and to inform you as to whether you have a claim. A personal injury solicitor will be able to inform you about how to put in a claim as well as giving you an estimate on the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to. Once your case has been evaluated you will be left with an idea of whether it is worth pursuing a claim. If you do pursue a compensation claim your solicitor will more than likely work with you on a no win no fee basis. This means that in a successful case you will keep 100% of the compensation that you are awarded with your solicitor's fees being paid by the losing party's insurance company and if your case is unsuccessful you will have nothing to pay.
