Do I have a injury claim?
If you suffered an injury in the last three years and someone else was at fault, Quittance can help you make a compensation 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

Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove 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.
Making your claim sooner should allow your lawyer to collect useful supporting evidence.
