Personal injury in Leeds


Personal injury is the legal term given to an injury to the body, the mind and also any injury to the emotions.  For example an accident at work or a car crash could cause the individual involved to become afraid to go back to work or to drive.  Getting behind the wheel of a car again could even in fact become impossible.

This could affect the victim in a series of ways, for example their daily routine may be affected dramatically.  Getting to and from work could be a major chore.  They may have to get someone else to drive them or alternatively may have to invest in a public travel card.  All in all, the whole process could become very distressful.

Personal injury claims are only available to those that have been injured due to the negligence of others.

In order to create a case, the injured party must contact a solicitor.  It is best to contact a solicitor that is local.  This isn’t of course essential, it does however help if you are required to go and meet the solicitor.
