Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and someone else was liable, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.
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.
See a list of what you can claim for:
Examples of special damages include:
- Lost earnings (including future earnings)
- Medical treatment costs
- Travel costs
- Costs of care
- Costs of adapting your home or car

Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three components to a successful personal injury claim. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
A short, free call with an injury lawyer will provide answers and advice.
How much can I claim?
The level of compensation you will be awarded is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our calculator gives you an accurate estimate of your likely compensation.
