Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?
The basic criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- 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. There are a number of other factors that 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.
It costs nothing to find out if you are eligible to claim compensation. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. If you prefer, you can check your claim online with our 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

Public place injuries
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) data indicate that employee slips and trips are by some margin the most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the Nottinghamshire workplace. Slips, trips and falls are often the precursor to injuries classified under another heading for instance being hit by an object falling from a machine or a fire related accident. Public place claims for injuries such as pulled muscles sustained on potholes are also quite prevalent with street falls having happened on Carlton Rd.
Litigators can help claimants with claiming compensation for a multitude of industrial illnesses including anything from asbestosis to pleural thickening.

What should be considered when checking Nottingham solicitor reviews?
Talking to a solicitor about your case is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
Do you have to choose a lawyer in Nottingham?
As with many professional services, you do not need to instruct a solicitor near you.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually will need to be performed locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
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.
