Q2. Can I claim compensation for any type of injury?

A2. Strictly speaking any injury or illness which you have sustained as a result of an accident can be claimed for. So if you become injured at work due to a slip, trip or fall then you may be entitled to compensation.

Compensation claims for personal injuries include workplace accidents; accidents in public places; road accidents; sports injuries; criminal injuries and medical negligence.

For more information about these and other types of injuries visit our types of personal injury section.
