How can we help

Will I be able to make a claim?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or 'date of knowledge') happened:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was at least partly to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other considerations?
Yes. In practice, various other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury, how close to the claim limitation date you are or whether causation can be established.
We can confirm your eligibility to claim over the phone. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 612 7456. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Injury 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
Calculating how much compensation you can claim for an injury can be complicated.

Injuries in a public place
Reported statistics highlight the fact that slips, trips and falls are the single most prevalent accident in the Lancashire workplace. Slips, trips and falls are quite often the initiators of accidents recorded in another category e.g. being hit by an object falling from a machine, being trapped by something collapsing or a harmful substance accident. Public place (Chorley local authority) negligence claims injuries such as strained muscles happening on spillages are also quite common with recent pavement trips having happened on Cleveland Street and on Chancery Rd.
When a patient sustains an injury or illness as the result of a doctor, nurse or other health worker's carelessness, it may be possible to claim clinical negligence compensation. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you make a claim against the NHS hospital or clinic that was at fault.
Alternatively, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure if you only want a better understanding of events rather than a compensation award. For example, to make a formal complaint against Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, you can contact Victoria Hospital, Whinney Heys Road, Blackpool, Lancashire.

Euxton personal injury solicitor reviews
Service standards offered by injury lawyers vary considerably.
Reviews can be helpful when deciding which lawyer best serves your needs.
Do you need to select a local Euxton injury lawyer ?
Going for a local lawyers office is not especially relevant as cases are usually run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to choose a law firm that has national medical centres as claimants will almost always be expected to go to a medical exam.

You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For a severe thumb dislocation, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £3,190 to £5,500 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
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.
