Can I claim compensation?
If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- in the last three years (limitation) and
- was caused by another party (causation) and
- that party owed you a duty of care (liability).
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. In reality, various other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the context of your injury or the location of the injury.
If you would like to find out if you have a claim, speak to us now on 0800 376 1001. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Personal Injury Claim Checker:
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

Other injury claim types
Injuries in a public place
Reported figures highlight the fact that employee slips and trips are, by some degree, the most common cause of injury in the West Yorkshire workplace. These types of accident are frequently the precursor to accidents categorised as something else e.g. being hit by an object falling from a machine, a fall from height or an animal related accident. Public liability negligence claims injuries like fractured ankles experienced on raised flagstones are also quite common with slips and trips having happened on Spen Lane and on Market St.
When a person is injured due to a GP, nurse or other health worker's lack of care, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim. If you have been affected by medical negligence, Quittance can help you make a claim against the NHS hospital or private clinic that was responsible.
If you only want answers rather than claiming compensation, you can raise a formal complaint. For example, you can write to Airedale General Hospital, Skipton Road, Steeton, Keighley, West Yorkshire, to make a formal complaint against Airedale NHS Foundation Trust.

Injury lawyer reviews in Liversedge - Tips for comparing firms
Talking to a solicitor about your case is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Before you call, checking personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
Are Liversedge claimants restricted to only local lawyers?
You do not need to instruct a personal injury solicitor near you.
Medical exams 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.

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.
