Do I have a claim?
If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you should be able to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. There are various other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the accident circumstances or whether the claim is considered to be low-quantum.
It costs nothing to find out if you have a claim. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. If you prefer, you can check your claim online with our Online 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
Accidents in a public place
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) data underscore the fact that slips and trips are the most frequent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Cheshire and the UK as a whole. Slips, trips and falls are frequently the precursor to injuries incorrectly attributed to other causes like being struck by machinery or a fire related accident. Public place litigation for injuries such as broken shoulders sustained on spillages are also quite prevalent with recent street trips having occurred on Neston Road and on High St.
Injury lawyers can help with securing compensation for industrial injuries ranging from Noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) to MEK poisoning.
More injury claim types
We recognise the difference a compensation claim makes to the lives of people whose lives have been impacted by serious and catastrophic injury.
By limiting the stress serious injury puts on an injured person and their dependants, compensation enables people to concentrate on their recovery and rehabilitation.
The panel of solicitors have aided families impacted by severe accidents. Injuries and illnesses held by the Courts to be serious range from poisoning to serious psychiatric harm.

Neston personal injury solicitor reviews
The quality of legal advice provided by solicitors, as with any professional service, vary considerably.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can be revealing when attempting to decide which lawyer best serves your needs.
The diversity in success fees and ATE premiums between different solicitors can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For instance the amount retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £11,166 for mild tinnitus with some hearing loss could vary from £6,699 to £9,491.

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:

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.
