Bodily injuries can cause specific pain and suffering, which in some cases can be long term and life-changing. This can also lead to emotional and mental issues. At Truth Legal we believe you should be adequately compensated for the injuries you receive and we will work with you to ensure this is the case, and that your recovery helps get your life back to normal.
What Can I Claim As A Bodily Injury?
There are many ways that bodily injuries can occur, through:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Assaults at work
- Slips, trips and falls
- Sporting accidents
- Criminal injuries
The severity of an injury can range from minor, ie. cuts, grazes, bruising, to severe, such as broken bones or the loss of a limb or a key function such as gripping, walking freely or even sight. These injuries can result in time off work and possibly loss of income, so you need to understand your employment rights and where you stand legally for sick pay and how your employer should treat you when you return to work.
How much compensation you will receive depends on the severity of your injuries and your losses which flow from the act of negligence. If you were at all responsible for your own injury this is likely to affect your claim and the amount you may eventually be rewarded.
