Personal Injuries Q & A
What are personal injuries?
Personal injuries involve physical damage or harm because of someone else's negligent actions or inaction.
For instance, if you're at the mall and slip on a wet patch on the floor, you might fracture your wrist; this would be a personal injury because someone responsible for safety should have warned about the hazard and promptly cleaned up the water.
Their inaction directly caused your injury, which means they could be liable for a compensation payment. If you were to pursue a claim, whoever was responsible (or their insurance provider) would need to pay you damages, including costs such as medical expenses and loss of earnings that occur because of your injury.
What types of personal injury might affect me?
Personal injuries take a variety of forms, including:
- Trips or falls
- Accidents at work
- Road traffic accidents
