Do I have a compensation claim?
If you were injured in the last three years and someone else was to blame, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make a 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
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident or work-related illness, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
In all cases, answers and useful advice can be offered through a free phone consultation with an expert Hessle solicitor.
