Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you were injured in the last three years and another party was to blame, our expert solicitors can help you make a claim.
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

Eligibility to claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Calculate my compensation
The amount of compensation you will receive is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our easy to use compensation calculator gives you a good idea of your potential compensation award.
