You may take legal action after you have been involved in an accident or injured because of somebody else’s actions or negligence*.
Personal injury claims generally involve:
- A plaintiff or claimant – this is the person making the claim (you).
- A defendant – the person(s) you are making the claim against.
- Your solicitor
- PIAB – Personal Injury Assessment Board (often called the Injuries Board). PIAB assesses most personal injury claims before any further steps are considered.
What Are the Common Injuries Sustained In Accidents?
For every type of accident, whether a car crash, a slip and fall, or a product related injury, there is a wide array of injury types that can occur. Every part of the body is susceptible to different forms of injury and the forces applied upon the body when an accident occurs will dictate the kind of injury as well as the severity.
