Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?
You should be able to make a compensation claim if you suffered an illness or injury:
- in the last three years (limitation) and
- was caused by another party (causation) and
- that party owed you a duty of care (liability).
Are there any other considerations?
Yes. There are several other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the type of illness or injury or whether a child was injured.

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 types of injury claim
Public place injuries
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) figures underscore the fact that employee slips and trips are the most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the workplace in 2014/15. Slips, trips and falls are sometimes forerunner to injuries categorised as another type of accident like being hit by a moving object, when helping another person or a drowning accident. Public liability cases for injuries such as sprained arms suffered on obstructed pathways are also common with trips having happened on Fountain Rd and on Alloa Rd.
When someone is injured or becomes ill due to a doctor, nurse or other medical professional's lack of care, it may be possible to claim compensation for medical negligence. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you claim compensation from the trust or private hospital liable for your injury.
Alternatively, you could make a formal complaint if you just want the hospital to explain what happened rather than claiming compensation. For example, you can contact Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Stirling Road, Larbert, Falkirk, to raise a complaint against NHS Forth Valley.

Will I have to choose a personal injury solicitor near me?
As with many professional services, you do not need to pick a law firm near you.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually should be carried out locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The contrast in the level of insurance premiums and success fees between different lawyers can have a significant impact on your compensation.
To illustrate the point, the amount of compensation retained by a claimant agreeing on a settlement of £43,868 for back injuries causing chronic permanent symptoms could vary from £26,321 to £37,287.

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.
