We work with specialists in Physical Injury Claims
Physical injury claims, in short, are difficult to avoid in England and Wales. You can take every precaution to protect yourself from misfortune for injury or illness. But sometimes, despite your strongest efforts to avoid harm, a physical injury will happen. In short, the lack of care and attention of another person or entity can cause you an avoidable injury.
Do they expect you to sit back and suffer without acknowledgement of your pain and inconvenience? Do they expect you to ignore medical evidence to the contrary? Of course not! The Compensation Experts can help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve so you can move on with your life.
We offer clients a connection to personal injury lawyers to get you the personal injury compensation you deserve. For general damages, loss of earnings and special damages, too: medical negligence won’t escape the pursuit of your personal injury solicitor.
What is a Physical Injury Claim?
Physical injury claims happen as a result of an accident, assault, physical trauma, and illness. You may suffer an injury doing nothing more than:
- Walking down a public street or through a shopping centre;
- Eating a celebratory meal at a restaurant;
- An accident at work;
- Clinical negligence from a medical practitioner;
- Playing a game of football on the weekend, or;
- Driving your children to school in a car accident.
What types of physical injury claims are there?
Types of physical injury claims include:
- Road traffic accident, such as whiplash, fractures, or even crushed limbs.
- Assault and injury as the result of a criminal action, including during the act of a robbery.
- Sporting injury whether professional or amateur.
- Accidents or illness at work like those sustained due to inadequately maintained equipment or lack of proper training.
- Faulty goods causing injuries like electric shocks, cuts, or crushed fingers.
- Dog bites sustained in public or private spaces.
- Horse riding injuries resulting from incorrect tuition or supervision from an instructor or riding school.
- Fatal injury and wrongful death such as electrocution at work.
- Deafness caused by working in an excessively loud environment.
The Health and Safety Executive reports that there were over 1 million work-related injuries or ill-health scenarios in 2018-19.
How to Make a Compensation Claim for Physical Injury
If you suffer an injury as the result of someone’s negligence, you can seek compensation for the pain and suffering. That, as well as the cost of any medical treatment or expenses like loss of earnings you endure. The Compensation Experts are able to assess the circumstances around your injury. Thus, we can determine whether your claim has a significant likelihood of success.
The earlier you seek expert advice about making a personal injury claim for compensation, the better. In turn, we can gather the evidence necessary to demonstrate that your injury arose directly from the other party’s negligence.
As a result, you’ve unfairly been subject to an injury. It’s important that these two items serve as proof for your claim to be successful. Accordingly, The Compensation Experts work with both legal and medical professionals to do this.
How much you stand to make in compensation
The amount of compensation you receive relies on the impact your injury has on your life. For example, will you still be able to drive, or has this freedom been taken from you? Can you return to work in your current role, or will you have to retrain to accommodate physical limitations? Compensation will account for any financial loss from:
- not being able to work or;
- having to pay for medical treatment like physiotherapy.
With wrongful or accidental death, compensation can also cover funeral expenses. That, as well as provide for those who were financially dependent on the deceased.
Will Your Claim Go to Court?
Your lawyer and the other side will do all they can to avoid court proceedings. Because it’s stressful for you to undertake, and expensive for them if they lose.
Accordingly, the solicitors we work with keep negotiating for you, even if a court date is set. They will keep negotiating on your behalf right up to the very last minute, too. In fact, it’s really not that unusual to settle claims virtually on the steps of the courthouse. For your claim to rightful compensation, it’s about what’s fair and what the fairest resolution will be to satisfy your needs.
Your lawyer will submit your claim to a court only if the other side refuses to acknowledge liability. But they do so on the condition that the evidence clearly shows they were responsible.
What Happens When a Physical Injury Claim Goes to Court?
You’ll have the support of your barrister, as will the other party’s insurance company. When court proceedings kick-off, they may question some points of your claim. However, by the time your case goes to court, there will be no nasty surprises. That’s because everything is on the table already between your lawyers and theirs.
