Can I make a claim for compensation?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, our personal injury 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

Personal injury claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident or work-related illness, there are three elements to proving a claim. It needs to be shown 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.
The financial compensation you are likely to get is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our easy to use calculator provides you with an accurate estimate of your likely award or settlement.

Do you need a local injury lawyer ?

However, you should go with a solicitors' firm that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will be expected to attend a medical exam.
