Do I have a personal injury claim?
If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and a third party was at fault, our expert solicitors can assist you with 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

Choosing the right personal injury solicitor
In most cases a personal injury claim can take several months to complete and in serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to trust throughout your claim to offer specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a claimant's compensation for bronchitis could vary between ?16,830 and ?25,300 (based on 2015 market research).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
Will you need to choose a local Helsby injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not so relevant as injury cases are usually managed by phone and email.
You will need to instruct a company that offers national medical centres as claimants will almost always need to attend a medical examination.
