Compensation Claims For Injuries
Compensation claims for injuries are unfortunately very common especially when it comes to accidents at work.
The fact that people are now likely to try to claim compensation for their injuries is understandable as, apart from the obvious hurt and distress, an injury can lead to a loss of earnings.
Furthermore, if an injury is permanent, it can lead to a total inability to earn a living and a devastating drop in the injured person’s standard of living. If this is the case, it is only right that compensation claims is made.
When taking this course of action those making the claim must prove they were not responsible for their own misfortune and that someone else was to blame.
For claims such as criminal injury, proving that someone else was culpable is slightly easier if they have been convicted of the assault. The police will have investigated and identified the guilty party, so the claim should be straight forward.
Nonetheless, it is still possible to pursue a claim for an injury caused by an illegal act through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority even if the alleged culprit has not been convicted or even charged.
Police involvement in a case of injury caused by a car accident will also aid a compensation claim as they will have the evidence required when the claim is taken to court.
The law also supports those who have been injured in work accidents. If it can be proven that an employee’s injury was caused by an employer due to their breach of the Health and Safety regulations then the claimant will have every chance of winning their case.
When someone is injured through the fault or negligence of another party it is important that they see a doctor as soon as possible as, in addition to treating their injury, they will compile a report which can be used as evidence to support a compensation claim. This evidence is especially important as it could help a court to decide whether a claimant should receive compensation for their injuries and how much they should be awarded.
If a compensation claim for injuries is due to go to court, it is very important that the claimant seeks legal advice and representation from a good compensation solicitor. This is especially important as the offending parties will no doubt have their own legal teams to represent them.
