Am I entitled to make a personal injury claim?

If you have been injured or made ill in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:

  • 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 points to consider?

Yes. In reality, several other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the type of accident or when the date of knowledge was.

We can confirm your eligibility to claim over the phone. Speak to a legal expert now on 0800 376 1001. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Claim Checker.

How much compensation can I claim for an injury?

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

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

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
  • Physiotherapy
  • Travel costs
  • Costs of care
  • Costs of adapting your home or car

Can I claim if I was partly to blame?

Even if you feel you were partly responsible for your accident, you may still be able to claim compensation.

You may also still be able to claim if something you did (or failed to do) meant your injuries were more serious than they might have otherwise been (e.g. you were knocked off your bike, but you weren't wearing a helmet).

If you were partly to blame, this is known as contributory negligence. Successful claims are often made on the basis of contributory negligence, although compensation may be reduced.
