What’s The Criteria?

As with any personal injury claim, you will have to prove that your accident was somebody else’s fault. Don’t worry if you don’t have any evidence though, as this is why you need a personal injury lawyer. It’s our job to gather evidence in support of your claim if somebody else caused your accident.

You must have been injured in the last three years, as there is a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, and we can normally only help you if you sought medical attention for your injuries.

This is why it is well worth going to see your GP even if you have suffered a minor injury such as whiplash, as we will need to see a copy of your medical report as part of your claim.

What Injuries May Have Been Caused?

It’s tempting to write off slips, trips and falls as minor accidents leading to injuries that are not too serious. Whilst this is often the case, it is possible to sustain more serious injuries in a slip, trip or fall, and fatalities also sometimes happen. Since 2000, Consumer Credit Justice have helped thousands of people to claim compensation for slips, trips and falls and during that time these are some of the most common injuries we have come across:

  • Head injuries including concussion, fractured skull or a brain injury
  • Broken bones – most commonly the ankle or wrist
  • Strains and sprains including ligament, tendon and muscle injuries
  • Facial injuries including eye injuries and knocking teeth out
  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Lacerations, for example if you slip in a bar and land on broken glass

As you can see, some of these injuries are more serious than others. For example, a brain injury can lead to changes in your personality that affect the rest of your life. You may suffer from mood swings or uncontrollable behaviour, be unable to work or even unable to care for yourself without assistance. This type of injury can be life changing not only for the victim but for their whole family, who can be affected emotionally and financially.

Consumer Credit Justice could help you claim compensation if a family member has sustained injuries that have impacted their quality of life. Equally, if you have suffered minor injuries such as whiplash or a broken ankle, we could still help you to claim compensation if your accident was caused by somebody else
