Can I claim compensation?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or 'date of knowledge') happened:
- within the last three years (except in the case of children), and;
- another person was negligent or at fault, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. There are several other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the accident circumstances or when the date of knowledge was.
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 figures highlight the fact that employee slips, trips and falls continue to be the most common cause of accidents leading to injury at work in North East London in 2014/15. Slips, trips and falls are often related to injuries categorised as something else such as being hit by an object falling from a vehicle or an electrical discharge accident. Public liability claims for injuries like broken toes experienced on pavement ice are also quite common with trips having occurred recently.
When a patient is injured or becomes ill as the result of a consultant or other health professional's carelessness, it may be possible to claim clinical negligence compensation. If you have been affected by medical negligence, the panel of specialist clinical negligence solicitors can help you make a claim against the NHS trust or private clinic.
If you are only looking for an explanation as to what went wrong rather than a compensation award, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure.

Do you need to select a local Redbridge legal firm?
The location of a solicitors office is not very critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, managed by phone, post and email.
You will need to instruct a law firm that offers a national network as claimants will almost always need to go to a medical assessment.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a claimant's compensation for a severe pain disorder could vary between £34,100 and £50,930 (based on 2015 market research).

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.
