Do I have a claim?
If you suffered an injury in the last three years and another party was at fault, we can help you make 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

In order to win a Ivybridge personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Beginning your claim as soon as possible will allow your solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
How much compensation can I claim?
The injury compensation you are likely to receive is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our compensation calculator provides a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.
