What Is A Personal Injury Claim?
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. In common law jurisdictions the term is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit in which the person bringing the suit (the “claimant” in English Law or has suffered harm to his or her body or mind. Personal injury lawsuits are filed against the person or entity that caused the harm through negligence, gross negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct, and in some cases on the basis of strict liability. Different jurisdictions describe the damages (or, the things for which the injured person may be compensated) in different ways, but damages typically include the injured person’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.
How Long Do You Have To Make A Claim?
You normally have three years to start your personal injury claim. This time limit is usually from the date of your accident. However, in some cases it can be from the date you became aware your injury was due to negligence (in the case of a workplace illness for instance). There are exceptions to the three year rule – and sometimes the time limit is shorter. If you think you might have a claim, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible
