Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and another party owed you a duty of care, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a claim for financial 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

Alternatively, our compensation calculator will give you an instant estimate of what your claim is worth.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claims should be made within 3 years of the injury in most cases.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the defendant
- That duty was breached by the defendant
- The defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
How much compensation could I get?
The financial compensation you are likely to get will depend on a number of factors. Our compensation calculator gives you a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.
