What Type Of Injury Qualifies As A “Personal Injury”?

Consideration was given for the editing and publishing of this post

Many of you will have heard of personal injury cases, and the potential compensation that you can receive for these claims. If you have suffered from an injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be asking yourself “does this qualify as a personal injury?” It most likely does! But let’s take a look at some of the categories that encompass personal injury.

Accidents and Illness Abroad

Accidents and illness abroad includes holidays, business trips, and sporting events. You might be surprised at how often people become sick or injured abroad. Unfortunately, becoming unwell or injured overseas is often somehow worse for people, as they aren’t on their comfortable home turf, it can ruin their experience, and they still have to travel home.

Faulty Products

Sometimes, a faulty product can break, resulting in injury for the user. Manufactures usually have to undergo rigorously safety tests, before they can release a product, but occasionally, something goes drastically wrong (or slips through the net) and causes injury to a consumer. If your health and safety has been put at risk, resulting in a personal injury, you can make a claim.

Industrial Personal Injury

Industrial personal injury usually revolves around detrimental exposure to adverse conditions, such as asbestos and smoke, resulting in lung cancer or respiratory illness. An employer has a duty of care towards their employees, to ensure that they remain healthy within the workplace.

Brain and Spinal Chord

Some of the most severe personal injuries that someone can undergo, often these lead to paralysis, mental disability, changes in personality, or even death. And the rehabilitation can be exceptionally difficult or expensive. In this case, it’s often extremely important to make a personal injury claim, to help with lifelong costs and hardships.

Medical Negligence

Medical negligence is surprisingly common, but also one of the easiest personal injury claims to make. As long as you have hefty evidence and a personal injury solicitor, like these, you will probably be asked to make a settlement, without having to go to court.

Road Accidents

Road accidents can be potentially devastating. Often, one person is at fault for the heinous injuries caused in a collision. It’s easy to get momentarily distracted, but the results can be disastrous. Road accident claims are frequently made.

Crime and Abuse

Becoming a victim of crime isn’t a common occurrence, but if you do fall foul of someone’s unlawful actions, it’s worth making a personal injury claim, if you can. The injury could be physical or mental; it doesn’t matter. Abuse, in particular, can leave lasting scars on both accounts. Get some justice for yourself.

Work Accidents

Work accidents can happen at any time, even in an office environment. The odds are that you will receive a form of workplace injury at some point in your life, but if this was your employer’s fault, then you will be able to make a considerable personal injury claim.
