What is Personal Injury?
In a loose translation Personal Injury means krzywda osobista. The injury can be
less serious such as a broken finger or more tragic like loss of sight or death.
Accidents often occur at work, due to electric shocks, faulty machinery, dog bites,
car accidents or medicine side effects.
Who can claim compensation?
Anyone who in the last 3 years was injured in an accident in England or Wales
which was not his fault.
How much might I get?
The amount of compensation is dependant on the type of injury, its effects and its
financial consequences. Compensation varies from £3,650 for a broken arm to £30,000
for loss of sight in one eye. In addition compensation will be awarded for loss
of earnings and expenses.
How much will it cost me?
Nothing. If we win our costs will be paid by the other side’s insurer. If we lose
the costs will be covered by legal insurance and you won’t pay a penny.
What if the accident was caused by my employer?
The law requires that employers are insured against civil liability. Compensation
is paid out by the insurer, the employers are not directly involved in the process.
Most compensated workers return to their employment.
Can I claim compensation if I was working illegally?
Yes, although in such cases the amount of compensation may be reduced.
What if I was treated in Poland?
The place of treatment is irrelevant.
