Claiming compensation for bodily injuries

If you have been injured due to someone else’s fault, it is your right to claim compensation. For bodily injuries caused at work, in the home, on the road, during medical treatment, or during sport, you can find more information on those sections of our site.

For other types of bodily injuries, basically, the law says that you can claim compensation if your injuries can be attributed to the fault of someone else. The important point is that the person must have a duty of care towards you and they failed to carry out that duty, resulting in injury to you.

Common bodily injuries

Some of the common types of bodily injuries that people successfully claim compensation for include:

  • Upper body injuries including arm, hand, neck
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Lower body injuries include leg, hip, groin and foot injuries
  • Knee and ankle injuries resulting from sporting injuries or slips, trips and falls
  • Hip injuries
  • Burns and scaring

Even small strains or bodily injuries that have accumulated overtime can have a substantial impact upon a person’s wellbeing. Back injuries are common and can be surprisingly debilitating.

Lower-body injuries typically give rise to substantial amounts of compensation as they can interfere with your mobility. You may require substantial assistance in carrying out your day-to-day activities and may be unable to carry out your previous employment.
