What Can You Claim for?
There are many incidents that you could potentially claim compensation for. Everyday incidents that may seem like simple accidents may be the fault of an individual or an organisation. Seeking compensation is your right, and will usually be covered by the insurance of the person/organisation that you are claiming from.
Below are some examples of typical claims:
Road Traffic Accidents
Car and Motorcycle accidents happen every day, although we never think it will happen to us! If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a car crash that causes you injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Injuries can range from minor bruising and whiplash, to the distressful situations of amputations and brain injuries.
Accidents at Work
Many people suffer minor injuries at work, injuries that they don’t really think are serious. However, these injuries can develop to seriously impair people’s daily activities. Repetitive strain Injuries (RSIs) are very common in both offices and factories and can be cause by constant heavy lifting, poor office furnishings and poor training.
Slips and Trips
Many people have accidents when going about their daily business and just put them down to poor fortune. But often, these accident could have been prevented had proper safety measures been in place. Slipping on a wet floor in a bar, or tripping on a loose paving slab in the street are excellent cases for compensation. These simple sounding accidents can often result in serious injuries, especially to the elderly or infirm.
These injuries are only a few examples of what can merit a compensation claim. There are literally hundreds of incidents and injuries that can severely affect people’s lives, and claiming the compensation they deserve can really help them to adapt to these life changing incidents.
