A personal injury can include, for example, an injury at work or in a traffic accident, an injury received as a result of faulty goods or services, an injury sustained by tripping over paving stones, an injury caused by errors in hospital treatment or one sustained by a victim in the course of a crime. An injury can be physical and/or psychological. A personal injury could result in death.
If you have sustained a personal injury, or if you are acting on behalf of someone who has died because of a personal injury, you may want to consider the following:
- Do you want to make a complaint to the person or organisation you believe was responsible for the injuries?
- Do you want to make a claim for compensation to cover losses you have suffered as a result of the injury?
- Are there any immediate financial problems arising because of the injury, for example, you are unable to work?
- Do you want to contact an organisation that could offer support or counselling?
If you would like to discuss your personal injury claim, free of charge, please contact Kirsten Woodgate.
