What Is A Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury is exactly that: an injury to your person. So, a personal injury claim can be made when you sustain any kind of bodily injury which wasn’t your fault. There are many different types of personal injuries, and many difference circumstances in which they occur. A fall from a ladder, a car accident, and an electrocution all usually fall under the same field of law: personal injury.

Accidents at Work Claims
If you are unlucky enough to suffer an accident at work through no fault of your own, Asons’ team of ‘no win no fee’ solicitors can help you claim for compensation. Work accidents claims are successful when it is proved that the negligence of your employer has resulted in your injury.
Construction And Building Site Claims
Working in construction can be very dangerous. Common hazards include falling from height, being hit by falling material, electrical faults, or even in accidents involving construction vehicles. Construction and building site claims are against your main contractor on site, who is legally obliged to adhere to stringent safety standards.
Hazardous Substance Claim

Military Accident Claims
Working in the armed forces is, by nature, dangerous. But that doesn’t mean to say accidents are unavoidable. The Ministry of Defence has a responsibility to safeguard the army against hazards. Where they fail in their duty of care, you may have a personal injury claim against the military.
Road Traffic Accident Claims
Road traffic accidents can cause all kinds of injuries, from minor bruising and grazing to severe fractures, head/spinal injuries, and even fatalities. Many people involved in road traffic accidents are entitled to claim compensation due to injuries which might have been avoidable.
Slips and Trips Claims
Most commonly caused by spillages, badly maintained surfaces or uncovered hazards, slips and trips can frequently be devastating. When injury which wasn’t your fault occurs as a result, you may have a compensation claim to make.
‘Other’ Personal Injury Claims
The categories named above aren’t the only ways you can sustain injury. Indeed, there are many ways you could injure yourself while going about your everyday business.
