Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?

You should be able to make a compensation claim if you sustained an injury:

  • within the last three years, and;
  • another person was at least partly to blame, and;
  • that person owed you a duty of care.

Are there any other points to consider?

Yes. There are various other factors that can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the specific details of the accident or where the injury occurred.

It costs nothing to find out if you can claim. Speak to a legal expert now on 0800 376 1001. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Injury Claim Checker:

How much compensation can I claim for an injury?

The amount of money you could claim for your injury will depend on:

  • the extent of your injury, and
  • any financial losses or costs you have incurred.

At the start of your claim, your solicitor will consider the many ways your injury has affected your life. Your solicitor will take all of these effects into account to calculate the correct compensation award for you.

This calculation will factor in 'general damages' and 'special damages'.

General damages

General damages are awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA).

Awards for general damages are set by the Judicial College and published in their guidelines for personal injury awards.

Special damages

Special damages are for financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.

What can I claim for after an injury? (see list)

Examples of special damages (losses you can claim for) include:

  • Lost earnings (including future earnings)
  • Medical treatment costs
  • Physiotherapy
  • Travel costs
  • Costs of care
  • Costs of adapting your home or car

Accidents in a public place

Health and Safety data underscore the fact that slips, trips and falls are by some margin the most frequent cause of injury at work in Norfolk. These types of accident are sometimes connected to injuries classified under another heading like being hit by hand tools in use or a fire related (burn) accident. Public liability compensation claims for injuries such as broken wrists happening on poorly maintained paths are also quite common with recent dislodged paving slab trips having happened on High St and on Dodds Rd.

Public place accident claims

Clinical negligence

When a patient is injured or becomes ill as the result of a doctor or other medical professional's lack of care, it may be possible to claim compensation for medical negligence. Our expert solicitor panel can help you make a claim against the NHS trust or private clinic at fault.

If you just want closure instead of starting an injury claim, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure. For example, to follow the formal NHS complaints process against James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, you can write to Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

Can I claim for someone else?

Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.

If an injured person is either too young or vulnerable, too injured or otherwise unable to claim on their own behalf, their litigation friend can handle the claim process on behalf of the injured person.

The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.

Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?

You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.

However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.

How long will my claim take?

The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.

For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can take years.

Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.

Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.

Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.

Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?

No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.

Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
