Can I make a claim for compensation?
If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and another party was responsible, our personal injury solicitors can help you make an injury 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

Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
To win a personal injury case, it must be proven that:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Beginning your claim as soon as possible will enable statements from witnesses to be gathered by the lawyer.
How much can I claim?
The amount of compensation that you are likely to be awarded is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our easy to use compensation calculator provides you with a good idea of your potential compensation award.
