Do I have a personal injury claim?

You should be eligible to make an injury claim if your injury occurred:

  • within the last three years, and;
  • another person was at least partly to blame, and;
  • that person owed you a duty of care.

Are there any other considerations?

Yes. In reality, several other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the accident circumstances or whether the defendant is uninsured.

It costs nothing to find out if you are eligible to claim. Speak to a legally trained expert now on 0800 612 7456. If you prefer, you can check your claim online with our Claim Checker:

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

Other types of claim

Injuries in a public place

Recorded data stress the fact that employee slips and trips are the single most frequent accident at work. They are quite often related to injuries attributed to other causes for instance being hit by machinery, being trapped by something or an exposure to an explosion accident. Public place cases for injuries like fractured ankles experienced on raised flagstones are also quite common with kerb stone trips having happened on North Deeside Road and on Kingswood Drive.

Public place accident claims

Medical negligence

Medical negligence is the term for when a person is injured due to a registrar, nurse or other health worker's carelessness. If you have been affected by medical negligence, Quittance's panel of expert clinical negligence solicitors can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic.

If you just want a deeper understanding of what happened instead of injury compensation, you could make a formal complaint. For example, you can write to Summerfield House, 2 Eday Road, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, to make a formal complaint against NHS Grampian.

Comparing Milltimber personal injury solicitors - online reviews

Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from sympathetic to strictly professional. Before you call, checking personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a much better idea of the level of service on offer, and the factors that matter most to you.

The difference in the amount of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between different solicitors is a material consideration for claimants.

As an example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £5,142 for minor eye injuries could conceivably vary from £3,085 to £4,371.

Accidents involving cars, motorbikes and other vehicles in Milltimber are relatively commonplace. Gov.uk statistics show a total of 395 accidents (291 slight accidents, 100 serious accidents and 4 fatal accidents) in 2013 in Aberdeen City local authority. In 2014 the total had decreased to 310.

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.

Read more about claiming compensation if you were partly responsible for an accident.

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:

Estimated claim duration*

Road accident claims

4 to 9 months

6 to 9 months

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.

Read more: Will my injury claim go to court and what if it does?

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.
