Do I have a injury claim?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last 3 years and another person was liable, Quittance can assist you with 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.
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

What factors to check when locating the right personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. The SRA regulate strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout your claim to offer practical advice and expert legal guidance.
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 hip or pelvis fractures needing surgery, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from ?31,625 to ?42,460 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
