Personal Injury might arise out of:
- A road traffic accident
- An employment accident
- Medical or any other form of negligence on the part of another
In the event of personal injury, the victim has the right to claim damages or compensation not only for the medical and other out-of-pocket expenses he/she has incurred but also for his/her pain, suffering and loss of amenities. No matter what, damage caused as a result of personal injury can result in compensation.
Initially, this compensation may be claimed and negotiated out of court with the person or company responsible for the act that caused the injury or his insurance company.
In the event that the parties cannot agree on what could constitute sufficient and fair compensation the victim might then proceed with a legal action, thereby taking his case before the courts.
The Cyprus courts have been particularly sensitive towards human pain and suffering and since 1990 there has been a continuous increase in the amounts awarded to injured persons as compensation.
