  • was caused by another party (causation) and
  • that party owed you a duty of care (liability).

Are there any other points to consider?

How much compensation can I claim for an injury?

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

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

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
  • Physiotherapy
  • Travel costs
  • Costs of care
  • Costs of adapting your home or car

Slips, trips and falls are quite often related to injuries incorrectly attributed to other causes e.g. being hit by an object falling from a machine or a quarry drowning accident. Public liability legal claims for injuries such as bruised legs experienced on raised flagstones are also quite common with pavement crack trips having happened on Wollaston Rd.
