Asalaam Alaikum, Blessed Shaykhs and all eshaykh staff, thank you for your time in answering my question.
I have recently been involved in a car accident in which i was my car was hit from behind. My back was hurting slightly and then the pain went away. Now i have a bit of discomfort in my back nothing major but i went to the doctor and told her what happened.
Is it permissible for me to claim personal injury compensation in this circumstance, even though the back issue does not stop me from doing anything as normal?
wa `alaykum salam,
Regardless of the nature of the injury you should consult a Muslim lawyer specialized in Personal injury compensation.
