Can I make a personal injury claim?

Short answer: Yes, if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault.

After suffering an injury, the first thing on your mind probably won’t be making a claim for compensation. You might be more concerned with getting medical treatment, thinking about your family and worrying about potentially having to take time off work.

 

But you are entitled to make a personal injury claim if you or a loved one has been involved in an accident that: 

 

  • Was not their fault
  • Caused you physical injury
  • Happened less than 3 years ago

 

An injury will usually mean that you are not only suffering from pain and inconvenience but also financial losses due to no fault of your own. So it is worth while to look into making a claim for personal injury.

 

If you are not sure or just want to have a chat with us about your claim or injury then give us a call or just fill in the form and we will be in touch straighaway.

 

All about 'No Win No Fee'

Before you start your claim, we want to make sure you understand what No Win No Fee means.

 

A No Win No Fee arrangement is one where you only pay your solicitor a fee if you win your personal injury or medical negligence claim. If your solicitor takes on your case and you aren’t successful, you won’t pay them any legal fees.

 

Simply put, if your claim is not successful then you won’t be charged any money by us, so you will not be left out of pocket for our services

 

After an accident or injury, you’ll want to focus on your recovery rather than on funding a claim. Also known as a conditional fee agreement, a No Win No Fee arrangement means there is no financial risk to you.

 

 There are no hidden charges or upfront costs and we make sure there are no surprises along the way.

 

If we think that you can win this case we will tell you and you do not need to worry about paying for any solicitors. 

 

No Win No Fee agreements were introduced by the government to give people who couldn’t afford legal representation the chance to access the justice they were entitled to. NOt everyone can pay for solicitors to get them justice.

 

This means that everyone is now able to make a compensation claim after being injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault.

 

Our specialist injury solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim. 

Making a personal injury claim

If you think you’ve suffered a personal injury, getting guidance from our knowledgeable claims advisors should be your first step. If they agree with you, they’ll introduce you to one of our expert accident solicitors. This is entirely up to you – everything happens at your pace, when you want it to.

 

Your personal injury solicitor will then take over the management of your case. They will evaluate your case and explain your rights, making sure you know what you are entitled to and what might be expected of you.

 

They will then start investigating your case and building the evidence required to get you the maximum compensation possible.

 

Once they have put your case together, they will submit the details to the party responsible for your injury, who will either accept or deny liability. This will dictate your solicitor’s next actions – they will either negotiate with the responsible party to reach an acceptable settlement or they will take the matter to court. This is a last resort and happens rarely. Most claims are settled outside of court.

How much compensation can I claim for a personal injury?

Every accident and injury is different. It is difficult to say how much you will be entitled to without having you seen by a Doctor, especially if your claim has not been assessed by a Solicitor.

 

You should approach compensation calculators you find online with caution. The value of your injuries are based on you Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenities (PSLA). It is hard to say how long your PSLA will continue if the accident has just happened and no Doctor had advised you about your prognosis. If your Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenities has been ongoing for over 1 month it is reasonable to assume that you have a claim that is worth £1,000 or over.

The exact figure you might receive will depend on how severe your injury is and how it might affect you – both now and in the future. 

 

We use case law and the JC Guidelines published yearly by the government to value you claim for personal injury. If you want to know more about this give us a call and speak to one of our advisors.
