What sort of injuries can I claim for?
Each year, we help injured claimants in Esher, Surrey and across the UK get compensation for:
Can I make a claim?
The key criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- within the last three years (except in the case of children), and;
- another person was negligent or at fault, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. In reality, a number of factors can impact whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the type of accident or the location of the injury.
It costs nothing to find out if you have a claim. Speak to an expert now on 0800 376 1001. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Online Claim Checker:
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 injury claim types
Public place accidents
Officially recorded statistics stress the fact that employee slips and trips are the most frequent cause of injury in the Surrey workplace. They are sometimes the initiators of injuries attributed to other causes e.g. being hit by a runaway vehicle, a fall from a ladder or an exposure to fire accident. Public place cases for injuries like broken toes sustained on pavement ice are also common with falls having happened on Molesey Rd and on Hersham Rd.
Clinical negligence is the term for when someone sustains an injury or illness due to a doctor, nurse or other medical professional's lack of care. If you have been affected by clinical negligence, the panel of specialist clinical negligence solicitors can help you make a claim against the NHS hospital or private clinic.
If you are only looking for a better understanding of events instead of financial compensation, you can raise a formal complaint. For example, you can contact St Peters Hospital, Guildford Road, Chertsey, Surrey, to make a complaint against Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

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.
