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

What are the criteria for making a claim?

Claims should, in most cases, be made within three years.

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

The lawyer can take you through these key points and will look at how they apply in your case.

Calculate my compensation

The injury compensation you are likely to receive is calculated with reference to a number of factors. Our online compensation calculator gives you a good idea of the compensation you could win.
