Our personal injury services

Will I be able to make a claim?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or 'date of knowledge') happened:
- 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 considerations?
Yes. In practice, several other factors can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the context of your injury 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. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Injury Claim Checker:
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

Other injury claim types
Injuries in a public place
Officially reported statistics emphasise the fact that employee slips, trips and falls are, by some degree, the most prevalent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Surrey in 2014/15. These types of accident are often related to accidents filed under a different category such as being hit by another person, when helping another person or an exposure to fire (burn) accident. Public liability litigation for injuries such as bruised backs happening on poorly maintained paths are also quite common with dislodged paving slab trips having occurred on Kirkstall Rd and on Cockshot Lane.
When someone sustains an injury or illness as the result of the carelessness of a consultant or other health professional, it may be possible to claim compensation for medical negligence. Quittance's specialist solicitor panel can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic responsible.
You could use the NHS Resolution process if you are just looking for a deeper understanding of what happened as opposed to financial compensation. For example, to go through the NHS complaints procedure against Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, you can contact St Peters Hospital, Guildford Road, Chertsey, Surrey.

Reviews for lawyers in Bramley
Talking to a solicitor about your case is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the quality of service taken by individual firms.
Do you need to go with a local Bramley lawyer?
The whereabouts of the law firm is not especially important as injury cases are usually conducted remotely.
However, you should instruct a law firm with a national network as claimants will usually have to go to a medical exam.
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.
Injury claims can also take longer if it is not clear who is responsible for your injury, or if liability is denied by the defendant.
Taken from average case times, this table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:

Will I have to go to court?
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.
Can I get an early compensation payment?
If you suffer financial hardship as a result of an injury, you may be able to claim an interim compensation payment.
An interim payment is a partial settlement of your claim which is paid before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
