Do I have a injury claim?
If you were injured in the last 3 years and a third party was to blame, Quittance can assist you with a claim.
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

Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your solicitor.
How much compensation could I get?
The personal injury compensation you will receive is based on the seriousness of your injuries. Our injury calculator gives a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.

Clinical and medical negligence in Halesowen
Clinical (or medical) negligence describes when a person is injured as the result of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional's lack of care. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence, Quittance can help you claim compensation from the trust or private hospital liable for your injury.
Alternatively, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure if you are only looking for closure as opposed to financial compensation. For example, you can write to Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Charles Hastings Way, Worcester, Worcestershire, to make a complaint against Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.

Government data demonstrate that employee slips and trips are still the most prevalent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Birmingham and the Black Country in 2015. They are frequently the precursor to injuries categorised as something else e.g. being hit by tools in use, a lifting injury or an animal related accident. Public liability cases for injuries such as broken collarbones experienced on raised flagstones are also common with street trips having occurred on Thornhill Rd and on Queensway.

Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your needs
It can take several months for the majority of claims to be settled. Claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to give legal guidance and practical advice.
