Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and another person was at fault, our panel of 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

Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window.
In most cases, proving an injury claim will involve three issues. It needs to be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Calculate my compensation
The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive is dependent on the nature and seriousness of your injuries. Our easy to use claim calculator provides an estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries and costs incurred.
