Common Personal Injuries

Life is full of uncertainty and we never know when we might face an accident resulting in a number of personal injuries. You may face an accident in your workplace or while you are driving your car on the road. When you are involved in a road traffic accident you may sustain common personal injuries such as tooth injuries, head injuries, face injuries, neck injuries, broken arms, back injuries, broken legs and bone fractures. Moreover, you may sustain various other serious injuries like brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Road traffic accidents could also create terrible consequences for you affecting your normal lifestyle. Whiplash is another common type of injury that you may suffer from a road accident. Whiplash can cause strain and stretch in the soft tissues of your spine resulting in severe neck swelling and neck pain. Moreover, its consequences include headaches and loss of movement of your neck.

If you have sustained some common personal injuries resulting from a road or workplace accident then you are liable to make personal injury compensation claims for your injuries. A personal injury claim can compensate your actual expenses, your past and future medical cost, your property damage cost, cost for economic damage and compensation for pain and suffering relating to your injuries. However, there are some guidelines that you should understand to get compensation for your personal injuries. In order to get approval for compensation you must be able to prove that the accident occurred due to the negligence of a third party. If you are responsible for the accident or if you have contributed to the occurrence of the accident then your compensation claim could be rejected. There are also few simple procedures that you should follow to provide a strong compensation for your personal injuries. You should gather maximum evidence such as the photograph of your injuries and the name and address of the witnesses of the accident. Getting admitted to a hospital is very essential as they will provide records of your injuries which you can present before the court in future.

A personal injury claim cannot be made after three years from the date of your accident and you are required to make your claim within this period. Making a personal injury claim involves some extensive paperwork and it will be better if you seek the assistance of a professional solicitor. A solicitor will present your case before the court in a systematic way that you will find it hard to do by yourself. Professional solicitors have in-depth knowledge in making personal injury compensation claims and only they could help you to get maximum compensation amount for your personal injuries.

Food Poisoning
Mr W was involved in a food poisoning incident at a Dinner Dance. Cooks obtained an admission of liability swiftly from the hosts. Mr W’s symptoms did not settle, he required surgery and Cooks referred him to a Gastrointestinal Consultant to provide a final diagnosis. On receipt of this Mr W agreed an out of Court settlement of £20,000.00
"At first the Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me, but Cooks never gave up and in the end I received a correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment and a cheque for far more than I had expected."
Mr W of Kent
