Can I claim?
It should be possible to make a compensation claim if you suffered an illness or injury:
- in the last three years, and;
- someone else was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. In reality, there are several factors that can have a bearing on whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the type of illness or injury or whether the claim is considered to be low-quantum.

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

Injuries in a public place
Officially reported statistics expose the fact that slips and trips are by some margin the most frequent cause of injury in the Hereford and Worcester workplace. Slips, trips and falls are sometimes the precursor to injuries classified under another heading for instance being struck by moving machinery or a river drowning accident. Public liability negligence claims injuries such as sprained ankles occurring on raised kerb stones are also quite common with recent trips having happened on Hewell Rd and on Bear Hill.
Medical negligence (clinical negligence) is the term used when a person is injured due to the carelessness of a doctor or other health worker. If you have been injured by clinical negligence, we can help you claim compensation from the NHS hospital or private clinic.
Alternatively, you can raise a formal complaint if you are only looking for a formal account of what went wrong instead of injury compensation. For example, to make a formal complaint against Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, you can contact Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Charles Hastings Way, Worcester, Worcestershire.

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.
