Been Hurt? Thinking About Making A Claim?
It's an unfortunate fact of life that many of us will be injured, however slightly, at some point during our lives. And, just as unfortunately, even a relatively minor injury can cause physical pain and mental stress, not to mention financial loss.
You can be unlucky enough to suffer an injury just about anywhere - at home, at work, on the road, or just out shopping.
Of course, injuries are most frustrating when somebody else is at fault. While official statistics are not necessarily reliable in all contexts, many people do get hurt through no fault of their own - due to someone else's negligence.
If this happens to you, you may be able to pursue injury claims leading to the payment of compensation to make up for loss of earnings and other expenses resulting from the injury. Of course, all injury claims are different, and the amount paid will reflect the nature and extent of the injury. Contrary to popular myth, injury claims won't make you an overnight millionaire. Nonetheless, the money is yours, you need it, and it's worth fighting for.
Types of Injury
Your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure your working environment is safe. At work, there are many potential hazards which may cause you to be injured, and thousands of people are hurt at work every year. You might be a victim of faulty work processes or unsafe job requirements, or at risk from malfunctioning or outdated machinery.
You may have been affected by hazardous chemicals, dangerous substances or gases that lead to serious or permanent damage.
Even a slippery doormat or trailing computer wire can cause slips or trips - all because of the employer's carelessness. It is your right to bring injury claims for compensation in such accidents. Understandably, many are reluctant to bring injury claims against their employer, but the reality is you cannot be dismissed from your job for doing so.
Of course, workplace accidents aren't the only reason people bring injury claims. You can also seek compensation if you were hurt in a public place and it wasn't your fault, such as slipping on a wet supermarket floor, or if you were the victim of an assault.
Many people also bring injury claims having been hurt in a car accident. You can bring such claims if you were the driver and not at fault, or a passenger. (This includes being a passenger on a bus or in a taxi). Of course, car accidents can cause many different types of injury, varying widely in terms of seriousness, from whiplash to back injury or broken bones.
Cyclists are one of the most vulnerable groups of road users, and many bring injury claims after they have been involved in accidents.
