What is a personal injury claim?
A personal injury claim is a claim for damages, which a person has suffered as a result of injuries sustained in an accident or as a result of the death of his or her breadwinner in an accident. As a rule the accident must have been caused by the negligence of another person. Our biggest personal injury claim practice is based on damages suffered by a person, as a result of being injured in a motor vehicle accident or where a person’s breadwinner is killed in a motor vehicle accident.
