About Minor Injuries

Every dayhundreds of people are injured in accidents caused by other people's negligence and incompetence. Thankfully, the majority of these accidents aren't serious, but the minor injuries that victims are left with can cause a significant amount of pain and suffering. Common minor injuries include lacerations, contusions, sprains and strains. Many victims of minor injuries aren't aware they can claim compensation for their injuries and fail to seek legal advice. Victims of minor injuries often assume that their injuries are unimportant and not serious enough to warrant compensation, however, this isn't the case. Despite their name, minor injuries can cause severe pain and potentially lasting damage. Lacerations, although quick to healcan cause unsightly scars to form on the surface of the skin and seriously affect a person's self-esteem. Our compassionate solicitors understand the distress that minor injuries and their effects can have on victims, particularly when the accident that caused the injury was another person's fault. We will do our best to build the strongest case possible and win you the maximum amount of compensation for your minor injury. 

Types Of Minor Injuries

Sprains and strains are very common and painful minor injuries. Limbs can be sprained in falls, road traffic accidentsaccidents at work, and accidents in public places, and the recovery time for a sprain or strain is often a long time. Sprains and strains are often regarded as being less serious than breakages, but they can still cause a significant amount of pain and discomfort.

Cuts, bruises and lacerations are probably the most common minor injuries and can be caused by almost any accident. Although these types of injuries are regarded as minor and usually heal quickly, some may require stitches and/or surgery and may cause scarring. 

Whiplash is a common neck injury experienced by victims of road traffic accidents. Both passengers and drivers can be affected. Whiplash is caused when the head is suddenly jerked forwards and backwards in an accident. 

Causes Of Minor Accidents

Road traffic accidents can occur frequently and are a common cause of minor injuries. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was caused by another driver's negligenceyou may be able to claim compensation for the minor injuries you sustained.

Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere - in the home, in the workplace, and in public places. Wet floors are a common slip hazard and trips and falls can be caused by items being left out of placecarpets not being stuck down properly and uneven pavements. 

Accidents at work, such as those involving machinery, are often responsible for causing minor injuries. Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees from harm and may be found liable if an employee suffers an injury in the workplace. If your minor injury was caused by your employer's negligence, he or she is likely to be found liable for your injuries and you will be entitled to claim compensation. 

Whatever the cause of your minor injury, our compassionate team will treat your case with the dignity and respect it deserves and help you win the compensation you deserve. 

How Much Compensation Can I Claim? 

How much your case is worth depends on the extent of your pain and suffering. Our solicitors will negotiate an appropriate figure with your opponent and if necessary, issue court proceedings in order to obtain a fair award. As well as being compensated for your injuriesyou will also be reimbursed for any financial losses you have endured because of your accident, such as lost earnings and money spent on travel and medical costs. To get an idea of how much money you are likely to be entitled to, contact our team today. 

My Child Suffered A Minor Injury - Can They Claim? 

If your child has been harmed because of another person's negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation on his or her behalf. Children can't lodge personal injury claims until they turn 18, but their parents or guardians can make claims for them by acting as their litigation friends in court. Our solicitors are experienced in helping parents claim on their children's behalf and will be able to help and advise you throughout your claim. If you choose not to make a claim, your child will have three years from the day they turn 18 to bring their case to court. The sooner a case is brought to our attention, the more likely it is to have a positive outcome for the victim. If you are considering claiming for your child's minor injuries, contact us today.
