Personal injuries will often have serious, potentially devastating, consequences on the victim, not to mention their loved ones who will have to cope with the long-lasting effects.
There are many ways in which a personal injury may have left an impact on your family. Perhaps your child suffered whiplash in a road traffic accident. Or you caught cryptosporidium during a holiday abroad. Or maybe you tragically lost a loved one in an accident at work.
The different types of personal injury
'Personal injury' is a very general term, covering a large number of illnesses and injuries, sustained in a huge variety of circumstances.
But generalities do not work in personal injury compensation cases; the exact specifics need to be established. This is because some types of accidents and injuries are more complicated than others, and also because the value of any compensation award depends on the severity of the injury, and the part of the body affected.
See, for example:
- whiplash injury
- back injury
- knee injury
- shoulder injury
- head injury
- industrial diseases
- workplace accidents
- road traffic accidents
There is a connecting link between all of these types of personal injury, however: they can all put the victim under some degree of physical, emotional, and financial stress.

You have to focus on the specifics when you are claiming compensation for personal injury. That is why Thompsons' personal injury lawyers will question you in detail about the facts and background to your case. They need to know exactly what happened to you, when and where it happened, and the extent of your suffering.
Our solicitors gather all the necessary evidence and information surrounding the case with just one purpose: to help you receive the fair amount of compensation you deserve. Once they know the facts, they will be able to give you the best possible personal injury claim advice.
