What Is A Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a compensation claim for suffering an injury that was caused by another party breaching a duty of care they owed you.

There are various instances where you are owed a duty of care, and if this is breached a personal injury claim may be able to be made. These include:

  • At work – The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 states that all employers owe their employees a duty of care to take reasonably practicable steps to help ensure their safety. If they fail to adhere to this duty and you suffer an injury, you may be able to make an accident at work claim.
  • On the roads – Everyone who uses the roads, such as motorists and pedestrians, has a duty of care to use them responsibly to avoid causing harm. They must also adhere to the the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Highway Code. If another user of the road failed to adhere to this duty and you suffer an injury, you may be able to make a road traffic accident claim.
  • In public – The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 sets out the duty of care for occupiers (those in charge of public spaces). They must take necessary measures to ensure the reasonable safety of members of the public who are visiting that space. If an occupier were to fail to adhere to this duty and you suffer an injury, you may be able to make a public liability claim.

What Will My Personal Injury Solicitor Need From Me?

In order to make a successful personal injury claim your solicitor will need different types of evidence. These include evidence which could show that:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the defendant. This may include evidence which shows you were in their employment or using a public space for its intended purpose.
  • They acted negligently and that this is what caused your accident and resulting injuries.
  • You suffered injuries as a result of this accident and what injuries you suffered, such as a head injury or broken bone.
  • You suffered expenses as a result of your injuries.

Examples of evidence you could present to your solicitor to help them succeed with your claim include:

  • Photos of the scene of the accident, and of your injury. You can also inform your solicitor if there was CCTV which may have captured the accident taking place.
  • Information about anyone who witnessed the accident take place, such as their name and contact details so that your solicitor can take a statement from them.
  • Your medical records detailing your injuries and their subsequent treatments.
  • Receipts and invoices which show any expenses you have had to meet, such as medical care.
