Take note that personal injury covers any type of injury you may suffer, whether it’s in the workplace, a road traffic collision or in a public setting (occupiers’ liability) in England and Wales or abroad.

In legal terms, a personal injury is an injury caused to someone’s person – either physically or mentally – as opposed to their property.

A personal injury can be caused by accidents at work or accidents in public places, exposure to harmful substances or medical negligence. Personal injuries vary from cuts and broken bones to serious life-changing injuries, and can also prove fatal.

These injuries can range from the more minor, where there is a quick recovery, to life changing injuries – such as losing a limb or suffering a spinal cord or brain injury. However severe your injuries and wherever they were sustained, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim.

For injuries that occurred in a healthcare setting, please speak to our specialist medical negligence team.

Are personal injury claims taxable?

No. The government cannot tax you on your personal injury compensation. This means any typical personal injury damages such as loss of wages, medical bills, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and any legal fees incurred from your claim are tax-free.

So therefore if you have been seriously injured, or if you are a family member or carer for someone who has been seriously injured
