What Can I Make A Compensation Claim For?

Dec 18, 2007
If you've been in an accident that wasn't your fault and the accident was in the last 3 years you have a legal and civil right to claim compensation. There are many different types of accidents that may be caused by someone else these include:

* Road Traffic Accident
* Personal Injury
* Slip, Trip or Fall
* Medical Malpractice
* Work Accidents
* Animal Attack

All of the above are types of accidents that may occur to you and if they do, and the accident wasn't in any way your fault why not claim compensation.

A Road Traffic Accident - this may involve someone in another car hitting your car, a lorry hitting your car, a car hitting a pedestrian, a car or bus hitting a motorcycle or bike the list is endless. Whatever the vehicle etc. you were in if you've been injured as a result of this accident you have the right to claim compensation from the other party. You may have received whiplash, back problems, paralysis, internal injuries, head injuries etc. all these are injuries you wouldn't have received if you weren't involved in the accident.

Personal Injury - this covers injuries from whiplash, asbestos inhalation, dog bites, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, eye and sight injuries, head injuries, bullying as well as radiation and fume inhalation. Any of the above may cause serious injuries to yourself and others. If you have had any of these you have the right to claim compensation from the party whose fault the injury was.

Slip, Trip or Fall - this involves you either slipping over, tripping over something or falling over. This may be slipping on residue, water or any liquid on a floor, tripping over a box lying in a pathway, doorway or tripping over an uneven pavement slab or road surface. You may even fall over an uneven road surface and injury yourself or fall over from slipping over on a slippery floor. If there are no signs indicting uneven surfaces, wet floors and surfaces you have the right to claim. You may injury your back, knee, head, leg, and arm whatever it may be you wouldn't have received these injuries if there were signs indicting this.

Medical Malpractice - if you've felt ill you would go to your doctor or the hospital to get yourself checked over and is treated if necessary. The problem is more and more people are being turned away without treatment and without a proper diagnosis of the problem. If you do have a medical injury and your injuries haven't been treated correctly you may be the case of medical malpractice. If untreated some injuries and illnesses are life threatening and unfortunately you may have been the victim of death. If this is true your family can claim compensation on your behalf.

Work Accidents - you go to work so you can pay your bills, but you don't expect to go to work and hurt yourself. In factories and warehouses work accidents are more common, employees use faulty machinery, use machinery when they haven't been shown how to the list is endless but this is the fault of the employer and owner of the company. It's not only factories where accidents occur, in offices employees may hurt themselves lifting heavy files, falling over boxes left in a walkway. Whatever the type of accident you have at work you must record it in the company's accident book and report it to your manager. They cannot sack you if you make a compensation claim against them and if you get any bulling or intimidating comments from your peers, managers tell your solicitor.

Animal Attack - this may happen when you're walking your dog and another dog try's to attack your dad as any dog lover would do you would try to get the other dog off your dog. This may result in being bitten and mauled by the other dog. You may be kicked by a horse in the chest, leg, head wherever a horse kicks this will be very painful and you have a right to claim from the horse's owners. Whatever the type of animal that attacks you without provoking it first you have the right to claim against the animal's owners from your injuries.

All these type of accidents can be claimed against, why should you have to suffer in silence and not get the help you require. You may have had to pay medical costs and prescription charges as well not being able to work which means loss of earnings.

Your compensation payout will include loss of earnings, medical costs and also money to help you pay for assistance, medical care if necessary. So why not make your claim today and make a difference!
