By law you are entitled to be compensated for any injury you sustain that arises from an accident that is not your fault. If you or a member of your family has been involved in an accident within the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation. However, children may be entitled to claim any time up to their 21st birthday.
Generally, you can claim compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of earnings and medical expenses, and there may be other elements you can claim for depending on your particular circumstances, such as childcare costs.
Most Common Types of Personal Injury
There is no definitive list of the type of accident you are entitled to claim compensation for, as long as you can prove that someone else is responsible and you have suffered an injury as result. Typical examples of personal injury compensation claims include:
- accidents where you slip or trip on the road or pavement;
- accidents at your workplace;
- accidents at school;
- road traffic accidents; and
- injuries caused in other people's homes.
