WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

Each of us through our lifetimes will suffer an injury, or will know someone who has suffered an injury. Accidents and injury are commonplace and in many ways, part and parcel of life. But it would be incorrect to assert that for every injury there is blame and therefore, a claim. Rather, it needs to have been caused by the negligence of another.

In a personal injury claim, the burden is on you, the Claimant, to prove that you have suffered your injuries because of the breach of a duty of care, or negligence, owed to you by another, whom we call the Defendant. The most common causes of personal injury in the UK are road traffic and workplace accidents. It can be relatively straightforward to apportion blame in the more obvious of scenarios and many successful personal injury claims are resolved without the need for expensive court proceedings or, they settle out of court after proceedings have commenced.

However, the more complex claims involving arguments about who is to blame and, serious life-changing injuries, are less straightforward, far more expensive and can take longer to settle. A complex case requires strong technical skills which will only be found within a specialist law firm; such as Alma Law.
