Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?
The basic criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- within the last three years (except in the case of children), and;
- another person was negligent or at fault, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other considerations?
Yes. There are numerous other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury or whether a minor was injured.

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
Calculating how much compensation you can claim for an injury can be complicated.

Other types of injury claim
Public place accidents
Reported data emphasise the fact that slips, trips and falls continue to be the most common cause of injury in the workplace. These types of accident are sometimes forerunner to injuries categorised as another type of accident e.g. being struck by a moving object or a drowning accident. Public place litigation for injuries like broken shoulders happening on raised flagstones are also quite prevalent with recent pavement trips having happened in the area.
Clinical (or medical) negligence describes when a patient sustains an injury or illness due to the carelessness of a registrar, nurse or other health worker. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence, Quittance's panel of expert clinical negligence solicitors can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic at fault.
Alternatively, you can raise a formal complaint if you are only looking for the hospital to explain what happened rather than a compensation award. For example, you can write to West Glasgow Hospital, Dalnair Street, Glasgow, to make a formal complaint against NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Reviews for lawyers in Lennoxtown
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from strictly professional to sympathetic. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a useful when contrasting the quality of service offered by different firms.
Will I have to choose a law firm 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.
Medical examinations will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national network of medical professionals will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
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:

**Official Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Government agency and Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) figures.
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.
