What is personal injury?
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?
