How we can help you
Every year, we help hundreds of people in Frodsham, Cheshire and across the UK claim compensation for:
Am I entitled to make a claim?
You should be eligible to make an injury claim if your injury occurred:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. In practice, several other factors can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your accident, when the date of knowledge was or whether causation can be established.

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.
Our injury compensation calculator tells you if you may have a claim, how much compensation you could claim, and what you can claim for.

Other types of injury claim
Public place injuries
Health and Saftey Executive statistics highlight the fact that slips, trips and falls are by far the most prevalent cause of injury at work in Cheshire. These types of accident are quite often the cause of injuries attributed to other causes e.g. being hit by hand tools in use or an animal related accident. Public place claims for injuries such as broken ankles suffered on pavement cracks are also quite common with street trips having happened on St. Hilda's Drive and on Main St.
Clinical negligence (medical negligence) describes when a patient sustains an injury or illness as the result of the carelessness of a GP or other health worker. 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 only want an explanation as to what went wrong instead of injury compensation, you can raise a formal complaint. To raise a complaint against Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, for example, you can contact Trust Headquarters Redesmere, Countess of Chester Health Park, Liverpool Road, Chester, Cheshire.

Reviews for lawyers in Frodsham
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
Does the location of the personal injury solicitor matter?
You do not need to select a lawyer near you.
Medicals will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national network of medical professionals will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
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:

4 to 9 months

12 to 18 months**
**Official Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Government agency and Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) figures.
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.
