If you’ve been injured in an accident that happened because of a breach of duty of care. A duty of care is when someone is responsible for ensuring your safety in the workplace.

The table below shows some injuries and the corresponding compensation brackets from a publication called the Judicial College Guidelines. They are used by legal professionals to help value claims. For this reason, the amount you actually receive might vary from the figures in the table below.

What Is The Definition Of A Personal Injury?

If you’ve been injured as a result of negligence, then you might be able to make a personal injury claim. If successful, then the compensation you receive will relate to the impact the injury has had on you.

To make a personal injury claim, you need to prove that: 

  1. You were owed a duty of care
  2. There has been a breach of the duty of care (also known as negligence)
  3. This breach has caused you to sustain an injury

In order to understand who owes a duty of care, we need to know the meaning. Duty of care is a legally imposed responsibility towards your safety, and it can be owed in a number of circumstances.

For instance, employers owe a duty of care to employees according to the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. They are to do all that is reasonably necessary to maintain their health and safety.

Similarly, a road user owes a duty of care to other road users according to the Road Traffic Act 1988. Road users should follow the guidance in the Highway Code to maintain the health and safety of other road users.

If you’re in a public space you’re owed a duty of care by the person in control. This is set out in the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957.

If you’ve been injured because of a breach of duty of care, refer to our personal injury damage calculator or speak with an advisor today. You could be connected with a No Win No Fee solicitor from our panel.

Examples Of An Accident Causing A Personal Injury

There are many accidents that can result in personal injury. Accordingly, you are able to make a personal injury claim if a third party was negligent and has caused your injury.

Some examples of such accidents can include: 

    • Road traffic accidents: Failure to adhere to the standards of the Highway Code may cause road traffic accidents. For example, you might sustain a head injury or a broken cheekbone if hit as a pedestrian by a car running a red light. 
    • Workplace accidents: Your employer should maintain good housekeeping and perform risk assessments as part of their duties. Failure to do so could result in slips, trips and falls from clutter in walkways. 
    • Public place accidents: You could be shopping in a supermarket when a shelf falls on top of you because it’s not secured to the wall. As a result, you could sustain a broken wrist and a brain injury.

You might not see your injury type listed above, but don’t worry. You may still be able to claim provided a breach of duty of care caused the accident which left you injured.

You can get a valuation of your claim by using our personal injury damage calculator. Or, you can speak with a member of our team about your claim today. 

Latest Personal Injury Statistics

According to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics for Great Britain 2020/21:

  • Half a million workers were suffering from a work-related musculoskeletal disorder in 2020/21. This covers new disorders as well as ones that are longstanding. 
  • 0.4 million workers sustained a non-fatal injury in this year according to the Labour Force Survey. 
  • There were 142 workers killed at work in this period as reported under The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013.

Potential Impact Of Suffering A Personal Injury

The impact of a personal injury can be far-reaching, affecting many areas of life. Some injuries can be relatively minor and you might make a full recovery. At other times, the impact could be life-changing with lasting consequences. 

If you’re left with physical injuries after an accident, then this could stop you from living your life the way you did before. For example, if you were an avid sports player before an accident that left you paralysed, you might not be able to do the things you did before the accident. In some cases, you might not be able to return to work. 

Furthermore, you might sustain psychological injuries as a result of negligence, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This could be a result of the accident itself. However, your mental health might also be impacted as you cope with the injuries you’ve sustained. For example, if you’re left with a scar injury, the cosmetic impact might cause you to experience anxiety.

For more information on the way that an injury can impact your life, and how you might be able to claim, speak with an advisor today. You can also use our personal injury damage calculator to see how much you could be owed.
