Serious Injury Claims
What is a Serious Injury Claim?
A serious injury is not defined but it is usually any serious or catastrophic injury that requires surgery and an extended stay in hospital, one that affects the ability of the individual from returning to normal work life and cannot live life independently. In some instances, a serious injury can lead to death. Serious injury claims may be suffered as a result of a cycling accident, accident at work, road traffic accident or a sports injury.
Serious injury claims are complex and generally have long-term effects and take a long time to resolve. The injured person usually changes jobs or may not be able to work at all due to the serious injury suffered as a result of an incident, accident or life changing event. As a result, persons suffering from a serious injury tend to require adaptations to be made at work and at home to ensure the environment is suitable for the individual.
What constitutes a serious injury?
Serious injury is one that requires surgery and extended stay in hospital and as a result of the incident the individual is no longer able to live an independent life. The injury is such that leads to death within 30 days or more following the accident.
