Legal Resources - Accident claim information

Accidents happen every day and result in thousands of people suffering personal injury every year. In many cases the accident and consequent injury is through no fault of the injured person but is caused by someone else. Some common types of accident which may occur are:-

  1. Road traffic accidents - injuries to vehicle occupants, pedestrians, cyclists
  2. Accidents at work including industrial diseases
  3. Accidents in public places
  4. Injuries caused by defective goods or products
  5. Medical or dental negligence

An injured person may have a right to compensation from the person or party responsible for the accident. Compensation can be payable under various headings such as pain and suffering, financial loss eg. loss of wages, medical or other expenses incurred, loss of future earnings, loss of amenity, loss of enjoyment of life.

In order to claim successfully it will be necessary to prove that the person was negligent and that the negligence caused the accident resulting in the injury. Where a claim is being pursued for specific items of financial loss or expense, satisfactory evidence will be required to support the amount being claimed.

Certain areas of claim such as pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, loss of amenity will normally be assessed by the court.

With certain exceptions a claim for personal injury compensation must be brought within three years of the accident.

Personal injury compensation claims are complicated and it is essential to use the services of a solicitor experienced in this type of claim.
