FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What constitutes a civil claim in Singapore?

Civil claims typically involve disputes between individuals or organizations over issues such as breach of contract, property disputes, or personal injury. These cases are usually about seeking compensation or enforcing a right.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

A valid personal injury claim generally arises when you have suffered harm due to someone else’s negligence or wrongful act. This could be a physical injury, emotional distress, or financial loss.

What is the process for filing a civil claim or personal injury lawsuit?

The process typically begins with legal consultation, followed by filing a claim in the appropriate court. This is succeeded by the exchange of evidence and legal arguments, and possibly a trial, unless a settlement is reached beforehand.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Singapore?

There is a statutory limitation period for filing personal injury claims, which is generally three years from the date of the injury. However, there are exceptions, so it’s important to seek legal advice promptly.

Can I settle my claim outside of court?

Yes, many civil claims and personal injury cases are settled through negotiation or mediation without going to trial.

What kind of compensation can I expect from a personal injury claim?

Compensation can cover medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other damages specific to your case. The amount depends on the circumstances of your injury.


01               Assessment of Damages:

Singapore courts aim for personal injury awards to be “reasonable and just,” focusing on fair compensation, not absolute or perfect amounts. This approach is intended to restore the victim to their pre-injury position. Factors like pain and suffering, loss of amenities, future earnings, and earning capacity are considered. Courts rely on past case precedents, adjusted for severity and changes in purchasing power, to quantify awards.

02               Special and General Damages:

For special damages, claimants must provide clear evidence such as medical and hospitalization bills. The court considers whether these expenses were reasonably incurred. There are also punitive damages, aimed to punish outrageous conduct, although these are not awarded if the defendant has already been punished under criminal law. Additionally, claimants may receive compensation for legal fees.

 

03               Filing a Personal Injury Claim:

The process varies depending on the type of injury. For traffic accidents, claims are generally handled by insurers, but engaging a personal injury lawyer is advised for maximum compensation. In cases of workplace injury, employees can claim under the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) without a lawyer, but suing the employer in court is also an option. The limitation period for personal injury claims is typically three years from the injury date or the date of gaining knowledge of the injury.

04               Quantifying General Damages:

The State Courts of Singapore and the Singapore Academy of Law provide guidelines for assessing general damages in personal injury cases. These guidelines help estimate damages for a range of injuries, including psychiatric disorders, considering factors like the individual’s ability to cope with life and work, relationships, and the likelihood of full recovery​.

 

05               Recent Developments in Law and Procedure:

Webinars and presentations by district judges and legal experts are conducted to discuss recent developments in personal injury law and procedures. These sessions provide valuable insights into evolving practices in the field​.

Civil Claims & Personal Injury Aspects:

Civil claims and personal injury law in Singapore encompass several key aspects that are essential to understanding and navigating these legal areas effectively. These aspects include:

Liability Determination

Establishing who is legally responsible for the injury or loss. This involves proving negligence, breach of contract, or intentional harm by the defendant.

Evidence Collection

Gathering and presenting evidence is crucial. This includes medical reports, witness statements, photographs of the incident scene, and any other documentation that supports the claim.

Damage Assessment

Assessing and quantifying the damages suffered by the plaintiff. This includes physical injuries, emotional distress, loss of income, medical expenses, and other related costs.

Statute of Limitations

Understanding the time limits within which a claim must be filed. In Singapore, personal injury claims typically have a limitation period of three years from the date of the injury or from when the injury was discovered.

Compensation Calculation

Calculating the amount of compensation that the injured party is entitled to, which can include general damages for pain and suffering, special damages for quantifiable losses, and punitive damages in extreme cases.

Navigating the legal procedures involved in filing and pursuing a claim, including court filings, pleadings, and adherence to court rules and timelines.

Negotiation and Settlement

Many cases are settled out of court through negotiations. Understanding the strategies for negotiation and the implications of a settlement agreement is important.

Trial and Litigation

If a settlement is not reached, the case may go to trial. This involves presenting the case before a judge or jury, including opening statements, witness examinations, and closing arguments.

Insurance Involvement

Particularly in personal injury cases, dealing with insurance companies can be a significant aspect, including negotiating with insurers and understanding insurance policy terms.

Appeals Process

Understanding the grounds for appeal and the process for challenging a court’s decision if one party believes there has been a legal error.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Exploring options like mediation and arbitration as alternatives to traditional court litigation can be a quicker and less adversarial way to resolve disputes.

Impact on Victims

Recognizing the physical, emotional, and financial impact on victims and their families, and providing appropriate legal and supportive responses.

 

Each of these aspects plays a critical role in the successful handling of civil claims and personal injury cases, ensuring that justice is served and parties receive fair compensation for their losses and injuries.
