Am I entitled to make a personal injury claim?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or date of injury diagnosis) 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, several other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, including the circumstances of your accident, when the date of knowledge was or whether causation can be established.
A brief phone call will let you know whether you have a valid compensation claim. You will be under no obligation to start a claim with Quittance. 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

Tillicoultry solicitor reviews
The standards of communication and advice offered by lawyers, as with any professional service, can vary significantly.
Reading reviews can be informative when thinking about which solicitor to instruct.
The diversity in the level of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between law firms working on No Win No Fee agreements can have a significant impact on your compensation.
E.g. the amount of compensation retained by an injured person agreeing on a settlement of £9,032 for a moderate thumb injury can range from £5,419 to £7,677.
Will I need to instruct a local Tillicoultry lawyer?
The whereabouts of the firm is not particularly relevant as injury cases are normally run by phone and email.
You will need to go with a solicitors' firm that offers national medical centres as you will almost always need to go to a medical examination.
More details - Do Quittance have a local medical centre?
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.
