Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and another person owed you a duty of care, our expert solicitors can assist you with a claim for financial 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

What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
A no-obligation phone consultation with an expert lawyer will provide answers to your questions and useful guidance.
How much can I claim?
The total compensation you are likely to get is based on a number of factors. Our easy to use claim calculator gives you an estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries and costs incurred.
