Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?
The main criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. In reality, several other factors can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the specific details of the accident or where the injury occurred.
A short phone call will tell you whether you can claim. You will be under no obligation to start a claim with Quittance. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Instant Claim Checker:
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

They are often connected to injuries attributed to other reasons e.g. being hit by an object falling from a lifting machinery or an exposure to fire accident. Public liability negligence claims injuries like sprained ankles sustained on obstructed walkways are also quite prevalent with pavement trips having happened on Tandlehill Rd and on Highcraig Avenue.

Will I have to choose a lawyer near me?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually should be carried out locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".

Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If an injured person is either too young or vulnerable, too injured or otherwise unable to claim on their own behalf, their litigation friend can handle the claim process on behalf of the injured person.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?
You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.
However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.
How long will my claim take?
The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can take years.
Injury claims can also take longer if it is not clear who is responsible for your injury, or if liability is denied by the defendant.
Taken from average case times, this table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:

Will I have to go to court?
Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.
Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.
Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?
No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.
Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
Can I get an early compensation payment?
If you suffer financial hardship as a result of an injury, you may be able to claim an interim compensation payment.
An interim payment is a partial settlement of your claim which is paid before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
