A personal injury can be a physical injury, disease or illness or a psychological injury or illness. It may or may not result in death.
Examples of personal injuries include an injury at work (including a work-related illness), a psychological illness caused by stress at work, an injury caused in a road traffic accident, an injury received as a result of faulty goods or services, an injury caused by tripping over a paving stone or similar, an injury caused by a trip in a shop, office or school, a psychological illness suffered as a result of abuse as a child, an injury caused by errors in hospital treatment or by vaccinations, a physical or psychological injury sustained in the course of a crime or a psychological illness caused by discrimination or harassment in the work place.
If you want to take legal action to claim compensation for a personal injury you will need to get advice from a solicitor specialising in these types of cases. This must be done as soon as possible as there are strict time limits on taking legal action.
