In recent years there has been a greater level of coverage for personal injury claims, but it can be difficult being knowing whether you have a right to make a claim.
Here are five scenarios where you may be entitled to make a claim for a personal injury and get the compensation you deserve.
1. ASBESTOS-RELATED ILLNESSES
Many of the effects brought about by exposure to asbestos can take years to manifest, but they are often serious when they do. Illnesses like asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma are all associated with considerable or repeated exposure, so if you suffer from them it may be time to place a claim.
2. ACCIDENTS AT WORK
The workplace carries many potential hazards, not least of all because of faulty equipment or a lack of warning signs. If you’ve suffered an injury as the direct result of an accident at work and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim.
3. ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS
Accidents on the road are sadly very common and can have serious repercussions. Depending on of how serious your injury is, you may suffer loss of earnings or long-term health problems. No matter how severe your injury, speak to a solicitor to find out whether you are entitled to claim.
4. FAULTY PRODUCTS AND APPLIANCES
Manufacturing doesn’t always go smoothly and faulty products have the potential to harm us. From children getting hurt by damaged toys to adults getting harmed by faulty hair straighteners, if you are the victim of this kind of problem, then make sure you seek legal advice.
5. INJURIES ON HOLIDAY
Holidays are supposed to be relaxing and fun occasions, but unfortunately things don’t always go to plan. For instance, you could fall on poor flooring at the airport or suffer food poisoning at the hotel. Either way, if you’ve been injured and it wasn’t your fault, consult a legal expert for advice on whether you should claim.
