Personal injury

You have personal injury if you have some kind of injuries or other difficulties due to someone else and you have suffered from material of immaterial damage as a result. If someone else is responsible for the injury, the victim (you) is entitled to compensation. A personal injury compensation is an amount of money to compensate the victim for the physical and mental damage they got due to the accident.

Sorts of personal injuries

Personal injury can be distinguished between material and immaterial damages. Material damage is damage to which a clear amount can be attached, this is damage that can be expressed in money. Immaterial damage is damage with a less clear value. In case of immaterial damage we can look at psychological and emotional damage. For example: grief and pain. We explain the difference further using an example.

Someone who is self-employed in the construction industry falls off a scaffold due to an error made by another person. He breaks his leg in several places and continues to have pain in his leg after the accident. The accident prevents him from working for several months.

Material damages

The material damage in this case can be:

  • The loss of income
  • The cost of physical therapy
  • Domestic help he hired because he cannot do the housework himself

Immaterial (intangible) damages

The immaterial or intangible damage in this case can be:

  • The fear of falling off a ladder again
  • Embarrassment for the scar on his leg
  • The pain on his leg
