What are Personal Injuries Claims about?

A personal injury can involve an injury at work or in a traffic accident, an injury suffered by falling on slippery floors or an injury caused by errors during medical treatment.

If you’ve sustained a personal injury, you need to think about the following:

  1. Do you want to make a complaint to the person or organisation you believe was responsible for the injuries:
  2. Do you want to make a claim for compensation to cover losses you have suffered as a result of the injury;
  3. Are there any immediate financial problems resulting because of the injury, for example, you’re unable to work.

The limitation period for a personal injury claim is 3 years from the date of the injury. A person will lose his right to make a personal injury claim if he makes the claim after the limitation period.

However, there are exceptions, such as if the claimant is disabled or a minor, or if the injury is undiscovered or if the symptoms are not obvious.

So there you have it, some basic information on what Personal Injuries Claims are about.
