In the year the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reported that in work related accidents alone:
- 646,000 workers had an accident at work
- 19,707 were major injuries
- 148 workers lost their lives
Add to this the estimated 500,000 road traffic accidents and the slips, trips and falls that are said to be more then double either work related or road traffic accidents and we have over 3 million accidents a year in the UK.
Among these accidents there will have been many blameless victims, injured through no fault of their own. How many of them apply the law that says if you were injured through someone elses fault, the guilty party should compensate you for the suffering they have cause? How many uk claims are made every year?
Accurate figures for the amount of personal injury claims that would have been made form these accidents are not available but it is estimated by various sources that just under 50% of victims make a claim. If we assume that there was at least one victim in each accident, that is approximately 1.5 victims, and if half of those make a claim that would be 750,000 claims made in the UK every year. This is only an assumption as may accidents have several victims and there are others that are solo events where the accident is their own fault, so no claim would be possible.
Why do half of victims not make a claim?
It is thought many victims do not exercise their right to compensation because they think it will be too much trouble or they are worried about the costs involved. If only these victims took a little time to look into the matter, they would find that at UK Claim Lawyers, the process is really easy and hassle free for the claimant and there are no costs involved.
