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

What is Quittance's track record of winning claims in North Baddesley?
Quittance Legal Services (QLS) is a UK-wide panel of specialist personal injury lawyers dedicated to helping people in North Baddesley, Hampshire and throughout the UK, obtain compensation.
Our expert solicitors have helped 100's of claimants in Hampshire seek compensation for a range of accidents and injuries, including car accidents and workplace accidents.
With an excellent claims record, our service is designed to be as clear and straightforward as possible. Local medical centres, home appointments (if required) and expert advice, means the claims process does not have to take over your life.
Do you work on 100% No Win, No Fee?
If your claim is not successful, 100% of the solicitor's fees are covered. This means that there is no financial risk to you.
Do I need to instruct a local lawyer?
The location of a law firm is not so critical as cases can be handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should instruct a law firm with national medical centres as claimants will almost always have to go to a medical assessment.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a claimant's compensation for loss of hearing in one ear, for example, ranges from £25,300 to £36,850 (based on 2015 market data).
North Baddesley solicitor reviews
The quality of legal advice provided by injury lawyers, as with any service, can differ considerably.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can help build a picture if you are attempting to decide which solicitor to work with.
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.
