Do I have a personal injury claim?
If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you may 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 quite a few other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your accident or where the injury occurred.
We would be happy to give you a clearer answer. Speak to an expert now on 0800 612 7456. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Personal 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
Calculating how much compensation you can claim for an injury can be complicated.

Injuries in a public place
HSE data stress the fact that slips, trips and falls are, by a considerable degree, the most prevalent cause of injury in the West Yorkshire workplace in 2014/15. Slips, trips and falls are quite often related to injuries categorised as something else like being hit by an object falling from a lifting machinery or an exposure to an explosion accident. Public place (Wakefield local authority) claims for injuries such as broken collarbones suffered on pavement ice are also quite prevalent with incidents having occurred on Warren St and on St. Peters Parade.
Clinical (or medical) negligence describes when someone sustains an injury or illness due to the lack of care of a doctor, nurse or other health worker. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you make a claim against the NHS trust or private clinic at fault.
If you are only looking for the hospital to explain what happened rather than financial compensation, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure. You can write to Airedale General Hospital, Skipton Road, Steeton, Keighley, West Yorkshire, for example, to go through the NHS complaints procedure against Airedale NHS Foundation Trust.

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.
