Billingshurst Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee
Whether you live in Billingshurst or anywhere in the country, our experienced injury solicitors can assist with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Can I make a claim for compensation?
If you were injured in the last three years and someone else was to blame, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a claim.
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 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 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
- Travel costs
- Costs of care
- Costs of adapting your home or car

Eligibility to claim
Personal injury claims should be made within a 3-year window in most cases.
For most claims, proving a claim has three key components. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Calculate your compensation
The amount of compensation you will receive depends on a number of criteria. Our easy to use calculator provides you with an accurate estimate of your likely award or settlement.
