Claims and Injury Compensation
A personal injury
can be either physical or psychological, and can
be something very minor such as a bruise or a
small cut or, at the opposite end of the scale,
can be so serious as to result in permanent damage
or even death.
It can be an accident
at work, whether due to faulty health and safety
procedures or just a chance occurrence, but it
could also include psychological injury caused
by stress or by harassment or bullying. It could
also result from a road traffic accident, or from
a fall by tripping over or slipping on the pavement.
One may be a victim of incorrect diagnosis or
treatment by a hospital, or one could be a victim
The term “injury”,
it would seem, covers more or less any situation
in which a person suffers an adverse impact on
their physical or psychological health as a result
of an inadvertent action either by oneself or
by another person.
When it happens
we, the victim, may wish to consider making a
claim, either of compensation for hardship endured
or to offset losses caused by an inability to
work, for example, or a restriction placed upon
our ability to live a normal existence.
