Am I entitled to make a personal injury claim?
If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are legally entitled to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- in the last three years (limitation) and
- was caused by another party (causation) and
- that party owed you a duty of care (liability).
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. There are various other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury or whether a minor was injured.
If you would like to find out if you have a claim, speak to us now on 0800 612 7456. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Online Claim Checker:
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

Other types of injury claim
Public place accidents
HSE statistics underscore the fact that employee slips, trips and falls are, by some degree, the most frequent accident in the North London workplace in 2015. They are frequently connected to accidents categorised as another type of accident such as being struck by a falling object or a river drowning accident. Public place cases for injuries like broken shoulders occurring on slippery pavements are also quite prevalent with pavement trips having occurred on Mount Pleasant Road and on Bruce Grove.
Medical negligence is the term used when someone suffers injury or illness due to a doctor or other medical professional's lack of care. Quittance's specialist solicitor panel can help you make a claim against the NHS hospital or private clinic that was responsible.
If you are just looking for a formal account of what went wrong instead of injury compensation, you can raise a formal complaint. For example, you can contact Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, 350 Euston Road, Regent's Place, London, to make a complaint against Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.
More claim types
The Courts recognise that serious injuries have a significant impact on an injured person and their family. Quittance fight to achieve maximum compensation for major injuries. This includes compensation for medical expenses and care costs.

Do you need a local lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby lawyers office is not especially critical as cases now tend to be managed without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to instruct a solicitors practice with national medical centres as you will have to attend a medical assessment.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
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?".
Haringey personal injury solicitor reviews
Levels of service offered by injury lawyers, as with any service, can differ.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can certainly be helpful when mulling over which solicitor to sign up with.
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:

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.
