Have I got a claim?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and someone else was liable, we can help you make 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

Qualifying for personal injury compensation
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation 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 considered.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Beginning your claim sooner will enable your solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How much compensation could I get?
The level of compensation you will be awarded is based on a number of factors. Our online calculator provides an accurate estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries.
