A guide to making a personal injury claim

By Howard Willis

Our national panel of solicitors help claimants throughout the UK to keep more of their personal injury settlement with our fairer success fees.

Whether you are based in Hallglen or anywhere else in England or Wales, we can help with your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a local medical centre.

Do I have a compensation claim?

If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and another party was liable, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.

Do I have a claim?

Key criteria

Claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.

Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.

To win a Hallglen personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care
  • The defendant breached that duty
  • Your injury or illness was caused by that breach

Compensation calculator

The level of compensation you will be awarded depends on a number of criteria. Our compensation calculator gives a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.

Slip and trip injuries

Reported statistics indicate that employee slips and trips are by some margin the most common accident in the workplace. Slips and trips are quite often the cause of injuries attributed to other reasons e.g. being struck by moving machinery, being trapped by something collapsing or an animal related accident. Public place compensation claims for injuries such as pulled muscles suffered on potholes are also quite prevalent with dislodged paving slab trips having happened on Glen Crescent and on Cow Wynd.
