Can I make a injury claim?

If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and another party was responsible, Quittance can help you make an injury claim.

Do I have a claim?

Key criteria

A claim must usually be made within 3 years of the injury.

In most cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

Calculate your compensation

The amount of compensation that you are likely to be awarded is based on the severity of the injury and any losses or costs you incur. Our easy to use compensation calculator gives a good idea of your potential compensation award.

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.

Slip and trip accidents

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.
