In legal terms, personal injury / clinical negligence is when an injury is caused to someone’s person – either physically or mentally – as opposed to their property.
A personal injury can occur as a result of road accidents, accidents in the workplace, exposure to harmful substances or medical negligence. They can also be caused by assaults, slips and trips in public places or even faulty goods and dangerous equipment or negligent errors by a professional medical expert causing injury to their patients. They can also include psychological injury or illness.
In the UK, if you suffer from personal injury / clinical negligence that was someone else’s fault, it is possible to appoint a specialist lawyer to investigate whether you can make a claim for personal injury / clinical negligence compensation.
The claim seeks to recover financial compensation from those responsible, through the legal process. Making a claim helps to secure compensation to cover financial losses incurred as a result of negligence, accident, illness or injury.
Anyone who has sustained an injury in the last three years that wasn’t their fault should speak to personal injury / clinical negligence solicitors to find out if they may have a claim. You must be over 18, or have a friend or family member of that age able to speak on your behalf. There are special rules applicable to under 18s who are injured and those who lack capacity to deal with their own affairs.
Any personal injury / clinical negligence claim must be made within three years of the incident or the injury developing. There are some exceptions to that rule though, so we recommend you contact us for professional advice.
There are various ways in which you can fund a claim, which will depend upon the incident you have been involved in and any existing methods of funding you may have available to you. For the most accurate and up to date information on funding claims please call our Personal Injury Specialists.
If you’d like to have a no obligation initial conversation about making a personal injury or clinical negligence claim, then please contact one of the team.
