Do I have a claim?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and someone else was liable, we can help you make 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

People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
What is my claim worth?
The level of compensation you will be awarded is calculated with reference to Judicial College Guidelines. Our calculator provides an accurate estimate of your likely compensation.
