What the Law Says
Often individuals or companies in a position of responsibility have a duty of care to those around them. In addition to this, over the years Parliament has passed legislation imposing duties. For example, if you are an employer you have a duty of care to your employees and also have duties imposed by legislation. An employer is responsible for making sure a safe working environment and a safe system of work are provided. Equally, if you are a driver, you have an obligation to drive safely in the interests of fellow road users as you owe other drivers a duty of care. Local authorities, owners of public places and medical professionals also have duties of care and obligations imposed by laws that they must adhere to.
The team were very informative and helpful when it came to helping me understand what was going on.
If these legal responsibilities are not met and have caused you an injury, there is a strong possibility you can make a successful personal injury compensation claim if negligence can be proven.
Getting Started With Your Compensation Claim
Once you have received medical treatment for your injury it is advisable to speak to a personal injury lawyer. They will try and alleviate any worries you have and will answer any questions you may have.
Some people are reluctant to begin a claim as they feel it could put them in an awkward position with the person or institution who has been negligent. However, it is important to remember that compensation is a legal entitlement designed to protect you. The pain and suffering as well as financial loss you or a loved one have experienced often outweighs other considerations.
Who Can Help Me With Claim For Compensation?
A personal injury lawyer will be able to help with your compensation case from the start. It is also worth remembering that evidence is needed in any case. Try to collect information like car registration numbers in the case of car accident claims, or photographs of injuries and/or details of witnesses.
You should also take notes of any money you spend as a result of the accident. If possible, keep a diary setting out the progress of your injury and the amount of care you needed. This evidence may enable us to claim the cost of even a family member providing care back from the negligent party.
Usually, the process of making a compensation claim is straightforward. What’s more, because many personal injury lawyers will take on cases on a no win, no fee basis, it does not have to be costly.
