Injury Claims in United Kingdom

Making an injury claim is something we hear less about these days. Many people did object to it, but actually it can be useful and so should be considered by people who have been injured. If your injury was not caused by you, then you have a right to claim compensation against the person who caused it. There are stories in the news about people doing this, which seem rather far fetched and unfair. However, if you have to suffer with pain because of an injury that was not your fault, then you deserve compensation.

There are people who get injured and cannot work. They get moved on to a low sick pay rate and miss out on the opportunity to earn money through over time and on call time and they may even be on a lower amount than they normally earn. They have to try to relax so that they can get better quickly and somehow manage on less money. This is where making a compensation claim can really help. The accident compensation claim will not only compensate for the pain but will also pay for any costs which have happened as a result of the injury as well as loss of income. It can make a significant difference.

As long as the injury was not caused by you, then you have a right to ask for compensation. You may be suing a council, individual, shop or business, but they should all have insurance to protect them. This means that your money will not normally have to come out of their own pocket but will be paid out from their insurance. This will mean their premiums will go up, but will not mean that they will suffer hugely as they will not have to find all of the money at once.
