What is an abrasion and why claim compensation?
Abrasion injury compensation claims are starting to become more usual than ever before largely due to the fact that today’s law is much more strict than what it used to be. There have been numerous cases of abrasions compensation claims throughout the United Kingdom and most of them have been won by the solicitors. These claims took place in most of the major cities in the United Kingdom. If you have suffered an abrasion and it wasn’t your fault then you may be eligible to claim compensation.
Let’s take a closer look at what an abrasion injury is considered and to what people in different areas of the country are claiming via a lawsuit after such an injury.
Here are some examples of the value of compensation claims for abrasions that have been claimed in certain areas. Firstly, a group of people in a two month spell fell due to a faulty pavement that had a few bumps and cracks in it, simply because it was left like that by the council. They managed to get light abrasions mostly on their hands and feet after tripping over. These were merely first degree abrasions and a few second degree which by no means can put your life into danger. However, these solicitors won the claims and managed to get from around £2,000 for a few light scrapes up to a settlement of £19,000 for the second degree abrasions.
Another case that also happened involved a man who was working on a forklift. After he took a load of crates, one of them came loose and it scraped the hand quite badly resulting in a third degree abrasion which needed immediate medical attention. The man was rushed to hospital and when he got out made a compensation claim which would cover the missing time from work and the medical trauma caused. He managed to win the case and got around £2,500 payouts.
The third case of an abrasion compensation claim is that of a cyclist that fell from his bike because of an uncovered sewer. The front wheel of its bike got stuck and the biker fell scraping his back and both of his elbows. The abrasions on his back were merely first degree but those on his elbows were third degree abrasions. The man claimed £4,000 payout for his injuries and won. He requested this amount of money as repair fee for his bike and for the time spent in hospital. He could have received a lot more than that because an uncovered sewer might be quite dangerous to someone’s life.

There have also been abrasion compensation claims in bigger cities. These claims usually take place for different reasons than those in other parts of the country. There has been a case when a woman in her mid twenties was taking a cab ride through the city to her husband. The cab had been hit by another car and the woman received scrapes on her hand and face. Because the abrasions on her face were the third degree type, the woman immediately claimed £50,000 pounds for this life changing injury. She had been awarded the claim of £50,000 pounds because she could have lost her eyesight. Some people even consider the fact that she could have claimed much more than that but the woman said she wanted to make people more aware of the dangers that are lurking on the streets.
How much compensation can you claim for an abrasion?
The amount of money you can claim as compensation may vary greatly. It depends on the type of abrasion you have (first, second or third degree) and where the accident took place.
How to tell the symptoms & how to get diagnosed for bad abrasions?
The symptoms are quite easy to spot. The skin will scrape and it will hurt quite badly. The abrasion only affects the outer layer of your skin so there might or might not be blood. Even if medical attention is not always needed it is best to get it because it gives you an evidence on how you got the abrasion.
