If you have suffered from a serious injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation through the courts. This could help you with getting the right medical care but also keep you going financially.
What is a Serious Injury?
A serious injury is likely to have a life-changing impact on the individual and those around them. For instance, it could mean you are left disabled or you have to undergo significant treatment to get your life back to normal.
Serious injuries can happen for many different reasons. You might have been in a car accident or perhaps you were injured at work because your employer was negligent. At Forster Dean, we’ve even seen serious injuries caused by simple slips and falls on the street which wasn’t properly maintained.
The Challenges of a Serious Injury
Whatever the cause of the injury, many common worries immediately arise. The first is probably how you recover as fully as possible and get your life back. Are you getting the best treatment? Could private treatment allow you to get better quicker and how do you afford that?
You may be worried that you won’t be able to afford your next mortgage payment if you can’t earn your living. If the injury has left you with a permanent disability, you may not be able to return to your previous profession and face a future earning much less. You might have to retrain to work in another industry or sector.
You may have to make adaptations to your daily living, especially if you are now confined to a wheelchair or need to make changes to your home so you can cope independently.
Can I Claim Compensation After a Serious Injury?
Every serious injury case that we see at Forster Dean is different and has its own challenges. If you were not responsible for the injury and someone else was negligent you can potentially claim compensation. It could be that you slipped on a floor that wasn’t signposted as a hazard, or you were involved in a car accident where the other driver was at fault.
