Injuries to both physical and mental health, as well as damages resulting from death, all fall under the category of personal injury. In some cases, the victim or the victim’s next-of-kin are entitled to compensation. Causes of personal injury include: traffic accidents, an accident at work, animal behaviour, defective property, and lack of (adequate) warning or information about dangerous situations. Poorly performed medical services (including medical malpractice) can also result in personal injury, as can inferior products and even uncontrolled behaviour at a sports event. There are many possible causes of personal injury. These are just some of the more common examples.
Almost all damages resulting in physical or mental injury are eligible for compensation. Think about claims for medical costs or for travel expenses. The largest claim for compensation is often for loss of earnings because a victim, as a result of injury, is no longer (fully) able to work. If a victim needs household help or help in maintaining a home as a result of injury, there is also potential for compensation, even if these tasks are performed by family or friends.
Besides compensation for these monetary damages, victims have the right to compensation for what are called immaterial damages: pain and suffering. The amount of pain and suffering damages is dependent on the seriousness of the injuries, the limitations they cause and on various other personal circumstances.
