A personal injury can be physical or psychological. You can make a claim for a personal injury if you have been injured in an accident that occurs as a result of the actions or negligence of someone else.
In a personal injury claim, the burden is on you, as the claimant, to prove that you have suffered your injuries because of a breach of a duty of care or negligence by someone else, the ‘Defendant’.
To bring a claim, you must be able to prove that the personal injury has caused you pain and suffering, and where necessary, you have suffered financial losses. Typically, the injury will have occurred within the last 3 years.
The most common causes of personal injury in the UK are road and work accidents.
Our road network is one of the most congested in Europe, and as such, we have some of the highest number of road traffic accidents. In 2020, there were 1,472 fatalities in reported road accidents and 22,014 serious injured. (There has been a decrease in accidents associated with the reduction of road traffic in response to the COVID 19 pandemic).* The primary cause of road traffic accidents is excessive speed and can involve a car, motorbike, pedestrian or as we are more frequently seeing, an e-scooter.
The Health and Safety Executive reports annually on the staggering number of people who have suffered an accident at work.
