Do I have a personal injury claim?
You should be eligible to make an injury claim if your injury occurred:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other considerations?
Yes. There are several other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the type of accident or how close to the claim limitation date you are.
It costs nothing to find out if you have a claim. Speak to a legal expert now on 0800 376 1001. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our 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 accidents
Officially recorded figures emphasise the fact that employee slips, trips and falls are the single most prevalent cause of injury at work in Lincolnshire. Slips and trips are typically the cause of accidents categorised as something else such as being hit by material under pressure, being trapped by something or an exposure to fire accident. Public liability litigation for injuries like torn ligaments sustained on obstructed walkways are also common with pothole trips having occurred on Main Street and on High St.
When a patient sustains an injury or illness due to the carelessness of a doctor or other health worker, it may be possible to claim clinical negligence compensation. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence, Quittance can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic responsible.
If you just want a formal account of what went wrong rather than starting an injury claim, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure. For example, to follow the formal NHS complaints process against Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, you can write to Beech House, Witham Park, Waterside South, Lincoln, Lincolnshire.

Reviews for injury lawyers in Saxilby
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from sympathetic to strictly professional. Before you call, checking personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.
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.
