ersonal Injury claims include claims where you have suffered a physical injury or a physical and psychological injury which can be caused as a result of a wide range of circumstances including road traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents, personal injury arising from housing disrepair, public liability claims or accidents at work. To make a claim for personal injury, you have to prove that somebody else is at fault and that this negligence has caused you loss or damage. There are a number of factors which calculate how much compensation is awarded, including the severity of the injury, how long the injury lasts and whether a financial loss has been suffered.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

What is contributory negligence?2019-03-28T14:12:58+00:00

This is a term used to describe a situation where an injured party is found to be partly at fault for the accident. This means that you may still be able to claim compensation but if you are found to be partly at fault there may be a percentage deduction to the compensation if awarded.

Is there a time limit to bring a personal injury claim following an Accident?2019-03-28T13:58:54+00:00

It you suffer a personal injury following an accident, it is advisable to contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to discuss making a claim. In England and Wales, there is a time limit of three years from the date of accident to make a claim for injury. Once this date has passed, you may not be able to claim compensation. There are some claims that have a shorter limitation period including accidents on planes and boats. If you have suffered an injury, do not delay seeking legal advice on the same.

How long will it take to make a personal injury compensation claim?2019-03-28T14:12:23+00:00

Each personal injury claim is different. The length of the claim depends on several factors including whether or not liability is admitted and the nature of the injuries.

How much can I claim for personal injury?2019-03-28T14:16:36+00:00

An award of compensation for a personal injury claim comprises of compensation for Pain Suffering and Loss of Amenity (PSLA), which is the injury also known as General Damages and compensation for financial loss, known as Special damages. The value of the claim for the injury itself will depend on the type of injury suffered, the severity, the length of recovery time, the impact of the injury on daily life and whether there is any lasting scarring, symptoms or ongoing disability.

How much will I have to pay?2019-03-28T14:17:13+00:00

All our claims are taken on a NO WIN NO FEE basis. It costs nothing upfront to make a claim even if we have to issue court proceedings. We only charge a success fee of 25%. This funding arrangement will be discuessed at the outset so there is no surprises.

What is an After The Event (ATE) Insurance policy and do I need it?2019-03-29T11:21:44+00:00

Where a person is suffers a personal injury through the negligence of another person or party and seeks to bring a claim for compensation, if a claim is defended by insurers or liability admitted but an agreement not reached on the level of compensation to be awarded, the claim would usually need to proceed through the Courts. In some circumstances, if the case was unsuccessful at court, the person bringing the claim may be personally liable for the Defendant’s legal costs. If you have an after the event insurance policy, providing the claim is brought honestly, the policy would cover the Defendant’s costs and prevent you from paying the same personally.

What is No Win No Fee?2019-01-28T16:21:13+00:00

A No Win, No Fee agreement is sometimes called a Conditional Fee Agreement. The regulations in relation to Condition Fee Agreements have changed dramatically in 2013. We offer a No Win No Fee agreement to all of our clients. This guarantees you that you will not have to pay ANY fee if your claim is unsuccessful.
