If your life or the life of a loved one has been affected by an injury, Quittance Legal Services can help.
What sort of injuries can I claim for?
We have helped hundreds of people in Rowley Regis, West Midlands and across the UK get compensation for:
Can I claim?
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 exceptions?
Yes. There are quite a few other factors that can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the accident circumstances or whether the defendant is uninsured.
We can verify whether you have a valid claim over the phone. Speak to a legally trained expert now on 0800 376 1001. You can also find out if you have a claim 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 types of injury claim
Public place injuries
Officially recorded figures indicate that employee slips and trips continue to be the most prevalent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in West Midlands. Slips and trips are frequently connected to injuries incorrectly attributed to other causes for instance being hit by material under pressure, when supporting another person or a drowning accident. Public place (Sandwell local authority) claims for injuries like broken shoulders sustained on poorly maintained paths are also quite prevalent with pavement trips having happened on Springfield Close and on Halesowen Rd.
Injury solicitors can help with claiming compensation for diverse industrial illnesses that include anything from chemical poisoning to toluene exposure.

Will I have to choose a personal injury solicitor near me?
The majority of large firms operate throughout England and Wales, allowing claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
Medical exams will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national network of medical professionals will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
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.
