Is My Personal Injury Claim Legitimate?
Personal injury compensation is paid when one party is judged to be directly or partly responsible for another party’s illness or injuries. Our potential clients are often anxious to know if they qualify to make a personal injury claim.
To claim compensation, your solicitor will have to establish and prove the following:
- Firstly, to claim personal injury compensation, you solicitor must be able to prove that the Defendant (party you wish to claim compensation from) owed you (the Claimant), a “duty of care”. What does duty of care mean in legal terms? Duty of care means that one party is obliged to provide another party with a safe and hygienic environment, or behave responsibly towards them, and to uphold their personal health and safety. For example, medical institutions and medical practitioners have a duty of care towards patients, meaning that they are obliged to provide them with the best possible standards of care. Drivers also have a duty of care towards other road users, meaning that they are obliged to drive in a manner which protects the safety of others. Businesses have a duty of care towards their customers, staff and other individuals who use their premises, meaning that they are legally obliged to provide them with a hazard free environment. The Occupiers Liability Act of 1957, and the Health And Safety At Work Act of 1974, codify these principles in law. For example, if you are suing a restaurant for food poisoning, your solicitor will have to prove that you were a customer who ate at the restaurant.
- Secondly, your solicitor will have to prove that the Defendant breached their duty of care towards you by acting negligently, or failing to act. Given the example of the restaurant again, your solicitor will have to prove that the restaurant did not store and prepare the food you ate correctly, or uphold certain health and safety regulations which restaurants are obliged to follow.
- Thirdly, your personal injury solicitor will have to prove that the negligence on the part of the Defendant caused the illness or injury suffered by you, the Defendant. To return to the example of the restaurant, your personal injury solicitor may have to provide a medical report from your doctor, and a health inspector’s report on the standard of the restaurant kitchen, to prove that the negligent preparation of your food was the cause of your food poisoning.
