There are many ways you can get injured because of someone else's actions. The injury can be minor (something you can brush off easily) or major (an injury that causes serious physical harm, leads to infection or renders you disabled). The person who caused the injury should be held accountable and pay for medical bills or lifestyle changes caused by the injury.

To ensure the guilty party is held accountable, you need to contact a solicitor known as an accident and personal injury solicitor, especially if the person responsible for your injury seems unwilling to co-operate or is paying you an amount that barely scratches the surface. Here are examples of scenarios where you might need an accident and personal injury solicitor:

Workers' Compensation

If you are an employee and have suffered an injury at work, the employer is required to pay for all your treatment procedures until you are fully recovered. The employer is also supposed to send you your regular income payments until you can return to work. If the injury renders you disabled, such that you cannot get back to work, the workers' compensation can cover you until the particular age it has stipulated in the workers' compensation agreement. An accident and personal injury solicitor can follow up on such matters and ensure they go through without hitches or delays.

Medical Negligence

If you are in the hospital and a medical practitioner wrongs you by either giving you the wrong medication, amputating the wrong limb, disobeying a DNR, making your condition worse, etc., you have the right to claim compensation. An accident and personal injury solicitor who specialises in medical negligence is who you need.

Product Liability

If you use a particular product and it causes you harm and upon investigation, it is proven that the product is the source of your ailment, you have a right to claim compensation from the product company. Hire an accident & personal injury solicitor who specialises in product liability.  

Motor Vehicle Accidents

These can either be public or private. If you get injured in a private motor vehicle, the motor insurance company caters for your medical expenses. You might need an accident & personal injury solicitor if the person at fault was driving recklessly and hit the vehicle you were travelling in. He or she is also responsible and needs to compensate you.

If you get injured using public transport, you have the right to claim compensation from the public transportation company that runs the particular transport line. Hire an accident and personal injury solicitor to ensure there are no delays.
