Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
If you were injured in an accident in the last 3 years and a third party was responsible, Quittance's panel of solicitors can assist you with an injury 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

Eligibility to claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within 3 years of the injury in most cases.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
To win a personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the defendant
- That duty was breached by the defendant
- The defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
How much can I claim?
How much compensation you are likely to be awarded is based on a number of factors. Our injury calculator gives you a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.
