What is a personal injury claim?

Personal Injury Claims arise when a person has suffered an injury, physical or psychological, due to the carelessness or negligence of somebody else. You can also be entitled to Personal Injury compensation if a family member or person on whom you were dependent has died in an accident for which they were not to blame. Even where you may be partly to blame it may still be possible to pursue a claim for compensation.

Personal Injuries are in no way limited to these and other common causes of actions are assault, injuries from defective products and bullying. Compensation from Personal Injuries can include damages for the pain and suffering sustained, damages for the loss in your quality of life, damages for loss of earnings (to include past, current and future loss of earnings), cost of medical care and out of pocket expenses. The aim of taking a case for Personal Injuries is to compensate you for the injuries suffered and to put you in the position that they would have been but for the accident.
