Burgess Hill Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee
Whether you are based in Burgess Hill or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced injury solicitors can handle your claim and we will always set up a medical at a medical centre near your home.
Do I have a claim?
If you were injured in the last 3 years and another person was to blame, we can assist you with 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

Elligibility to make a personal injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within three years of an injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
For most claims, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be shown 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
Your solicitor will discuss these issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
Calculate my compensation
The personal injury compensation you will receive is based on the seriousness of your injuries. Our claim calculator provides an estimate of the award or settlement you could be due.
