What is a serious injury?
A serious injury for the purposes of this type of compensation claim is categorised as an injury that usually requires a period of hospitalisation or medical treatment, and in some cases a serious injury could include permanent or life-changing health damage.
A serious injury could include things such as loss of limbs, damage to your vision or hearing, a head injury, burns, spinal injuries or many more types of injury. Sometimes a serious injury may have a fairly quick recovery period, but in other circumstances, there can be long-lasting consequences to the original injury, and only a partial recovery or progress may be possible.
