Serious injury

Also referred to as catastrophic injury – is the type of injury that leads to a decreased quality of life. In more serious terms, it can also be a precursor to a permanent disability, long-lasting medical problems and in more severe circumstances, reduced life expectancy.

Citing the predominant types of serious injuries that we could help win you compensation for, via a personal injury claim, and the following are just a few of the more common examples.


In cases of serious injuries, there are many factors to take into consideration.

The treatment and follow up care for serious injury cases have a habit of being very expensive and can often involve multiple procedures and necessitate continuous care being provided for the victim, whose capacity to both physically and/or emotionally support themselves could be significantly compromised.

There’s no doubt about it; serious injury can cause trauma, intense pains and have a stressful impact on the victim and their family as they learn to adapt and find coping mechanisms.

Be it a road traffic accident, an accident in your workplace or an accident which befalls you in a public place, all of these accident types can escalate to a serious injury claim.

There’s a number of reasons an individual will seek compensation for a serious injury through a long-established and reputable claims management company, like DIYPI. Not least because these serious/catastrophic injury types possibly render you unable – or unfit – to work. You may also need disabled facilities in your home, your car adapted accordingly and some level of physiotherapy for the rest of your life.

Every serious – or catastrophic – injury claim is unique. It’s unique because of the differences that exist between circumstances, negligence, causes and liability surrounding the accident. It’s also unique because every individual is unique. The exact amount for serious injury compensation is difficult to determine, suffice to say that the value of each serious injury claim is typically based on certain conditions, such as those highlighted beneath.

Injury Claim

Can I claim for a loved one?

Yes, as unfortunate as it sounds, often the individual injured and looking to pursue a claim for personal injury as a result of sustaining a serious injury, is too incapacitated to follow through with this. This doesn’t prevent another family member from seeking the justice they deserve.
