Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last 3 years and a third party was liable, our panel of expert solicitors can assist you with a claim for 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

Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Compensation claims should, in most cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident or work-related illness, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must 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.
Starting your claim as soon as possible should allow your solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
The compensation you will be awarded will depend on a variety of factors. Our easy to use injury calculator provides a realistic idea of your likely compensation.
