Making a Personal Injury Claim
As previously mentioned, should you have suffered from an injury that wasnâ€™t your fault then you may be entitled to pay compensation. Making a personal injury claim can be very complex, frustrating and difficult during this understandably stressful time but being represented by a personal injury solicitor can make the process easier for you and your family. Thereâ€™s a number of accidents in which you may be able to make a claim such as road traffic accidents, accidents at work, medical negligence, dental negligence and trips or falls. These claims must typically be made within 3 years of the accident although special considerations can make the Courts willing to waive the time limits and allow your claim to go ahead.
Compensation for personal injury claims such as accidents at work, road traffic accidents and slips, trips or falls can cover the cost of medical treatment or medication, damage to clothing caused by the accident, loss of earnings due to your injuries, travel expenses to your Hospital or GP for treatment and care and assistance that someone had to provide you due to your injury.
Specialist Personal Injury Claims
As discussed, dental or medical negligence falls under the category of personal injury. Injury, misdiagnosis or diseases caused by medical or dental negligence can be highly distressing as you naturally have a lot of trust in your dental practitioner or medical practitioner. You are able to make a medical or dental negligence claim against any medical or dental practitioner should you have received negligent treatment or have suffered from an issue such as a misdiagnosis. You may claim for the same damages as mentioned previously and you also only have 3 years to issue Court Proceedings from the date you first knew about the medical or dental negligence.
These claims differ from the other claims mentioned as the defendant against your claim will have to prove that the treatment you received was to a standard that could reasonably have been expected. You will also have to claim that the treatment provided was not to the standard that could reasonably have been expected using a medical report from a medical expert to prove this. The personal injury solicitors at Thompson & Co Solicitors have many years of experience representing our clients in personal injury claims, medical negligence claims and dental negligence claims. We will endeavour to support and represent you during this understandably difficult and stressful time.
Guidance When Making a Personal Injury Claim
It can be understandably highly distressing when having to make a personal injury claim against another person who is at fault, a medical or dental practitioner or an employer. Contacting a personal injury solicitor ensures that you have a highly experienced team of solicitors available to advise you during your claim. This is important as they can offer you the relevant advice that is appropriate to your case and as every case is unique this will offer relevant advice from cases that are similar to your own. Our solicitors have a proven track record in representing our clients for a wide variety of personal injury claims. We can use our experience to help you during your case and help you to prove that an accident at work or negligence due to a practitioner or employer wasnâ€™t your fault.
Personal Injury Claims Process
The personal injury claim process usually consists of having to prove that any injuries sustained would not have occurred unless the accident or negligence took place. Within dental and medical negligence, the claim would also need to prove that your injuries would not have occurred if it were not for the negligence of the medical practitioner. In some cases injury may have occurred anyway. For example the injury could be due to the actual illness being treated. Being represented by a personal injury solicitor will give you additional support and can help in securing second opinions via medical reports. At some stage in your medical negligence claim for example, it will be necessary to obtain a medical report from a medical expert. This is to advise whether the treatment provided was negligent and whether the injury would have occurred anyway even if the negligent treatment had not taken place.
