A personal injury claim can be made for any injury you have suffered that was caused by the negligent or deliberate act of another person. This could be an injury you suffered at your work site, your home, someone else’s property, or in a public area. For example, your work equipment could have malfunctioned and caused you harm, or a product that you purchased caused you to become ill, or you slipped and fell on a wet floor at the mall. Personal injury claims also extend to cases of motor vehicle accidents, physical abuse and medical negligence.

What can I claim for with a personal injury claim?
A successful personal injury claim should recompense you for all the losses you suffered due to the injury. This can be categorised into patrimonial and non-patrimonial damages. Patrimonial damages, or special damages, include past and future medical expenses to treat the injury, past and future loss of income, loss of earning capacity and loss of support. Non-patrimonial damages or general damages cover claims for trauma, pain and suffering, disfigurement or similar emotional or personal suffering caused by the injury.
