Am I eligible to make a personal injury claim?
If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, the law entitles you to claim financial compensation. To make a successful claim, your injury must have happened:
- in the last three years, and;
- someone else was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. In reality, various other factors can affect whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, such as the specific details of the accident, whether the claim is considered to be low-quantum or whether there is sufficient evidence to support your claim.

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 injury claim types
Injuries in a public place
Officially recorded statistics show that employee slips and trips are the most common accident in the Wiltshire workplace. These types of accident are sometimes the precursor to injuries filed under a different category such as being struck by a falling object or an electrical discharge accident. Public place legal claims for injuries like broken toes experienced on obstructed pathways are also quite prevalent with pavement crack trips having happened recently.
Clinical negligence (medical negligence) is the term used when a patient is injured or becomes ill as the result of the lack of care of a consultant or other health professional. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence, we can help you make a claim against the NHS trust or private clinic responsible.
You could use the NHS Resolution process if you are just looking for answers instead of a compensation award. To make a complaint against Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, for example, you can contact Great Western Hospital, Marlborough Road, Swindon, Wiltshire.

Do you have to choose a personal injury solicitor in Tidworth?
The majority of large firms operate across the country, allowing claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually needs a local service provider is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the 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.
