Have I got a compensation claim?
If you were injured in an accident in the last 3 years and a third party was responsible, our panel of award-winning solicitors can assist you with an injury 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
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated 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.
Your solicitor will discuss each of these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
How much compensation could I get?
How much compensation you are likely to be awarded is calculated with reference to a number of factors. Our online injury calculator gives a realistic idea of your potential damages award.
