Injuries To The Senses
There are a number of different injuries to the senses, all of which may result in possible injuries to the senses compensation. You may have suffered an injury relating to your sight, hearing, taste, touch or smell. In such situations, you may well be entitled to bring a personal injury compensation claim via our solicitor** in Birmingham. For example, you may have suffered from loss of vision or loss of hearing.
Injuries To The Senses – Loss of Sight, Hearing, Taste, Touch or Smell
Although it is common for injuries to the senses to arise from head injuries (and may have been as a result of a road traffic accident), there are a number of other examples where such injuries may arise and the compensation is not limited to car accidents. For example, you may have been struck in the eye whilst operating machinery at work or you may have suffered a partial loss of hearing as a result of a health and safety breach in the workplace. Further, you may have lost either your sense of smell or taste (either partially or totally).
Although in the majority of cases the more serious the injury, the greater the entitlement to injuries to the senses compensation may be, the amount of compensation takes into account a number of other factors. The courts will look in more detail, amongst other things, at the type of injury, how it was caused, whether or not it will deteriorate with time, the age of the victim and the overreaching affect of the injury.
It is worth noting that any damage to sensitive organs such as the ear and the eye may well result in injuries to the senses compensation, and therefore it is important to contact a personal injury expert in Birmingham to discuss your injury and see whether or not you are able to claim compensation.
An injury to the senses can potentially affect your life and therefore it is important that you contact one of our Birmingham based legal experts as soon as is reasonably possible for an initial discussion and to assess whether or not you are entitled to injuries to the senses compensation.
