Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you were injured in the last 3 years and another person was to blame, our expert solicitors can assist you with 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

Eligibility to claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim 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.
For most claims, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
The personal injury compensation you will receive will depend on a number of factors. Our easy to use claim calculator gives you an estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries and costs incurred.
