Can I claim?
If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are legally entitled to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- 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 quite a few other factors that can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the type of illness or injury or how close to the claim limitation date you are.
It costs nothing to find out if you are entitled to injury compensation. Speak to an expert now on 0800 612 7456. You can also 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.
Our injury compensation calculator tells you if you may have a claim, how much compensation you could claim, and what you can claim for.

Other types of injury claim
Public place injuries
Health and Safety statistics stress the fact that slips, trips and falls are by some margin the most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the workplace. Slips and trips are quite often the forerunner to injuries classified under another heading for instance being struck by a moving object, when helping another person or a toxic substance accident. Public place litigation for injuries such as cheekbone fractures sustained on pavement ice are also common with falls having happened recently.
Clinical (or medical) negligence is the term for when a person is injured or becomes ill due to the lack of care of a registrar, nurse or other health worker. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you claim compensation from the hospital or clinic responsible for the injury.
You could use the NHS Resolution process if you only want the hospital to explain what happened instead of injury compensation. You can contact West Glasgow Hospital, Dalnair Street, Glasgow, for example, to make a formal complaint against NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Do you need a local Thornliebank injury lawyer ?
The location of the lawyers office is not important as cases are usually handled by phone and email.
However, you should instruct a company that provides national medical centres as you will need to attend a medical exam.

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.
