Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
If you were injured in an accident in the last 3 years and another person was responsible, Quittance's panel of 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

Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
In the majority of cases, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be shown 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
Starting your claim as soon as possible will allow your lawyer to collect useful supporting evidence.
How much compensation you are likely to be awarded depends on a number of criteria. Our claim calculator gives you an estimate of the award or settlement you could be due.
