Every year, we help injured claimants in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester and throughout the UK get the best possible compensation for their injuries.
How were you injured?
The steps required to win a personal injury claim will depend on what caused your injury or illness.
For more information, see:
Do I have a claim?
The key criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- 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 other factors that could affect my right to claim?
Yes. There are various other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury or if there is an uninsured driver involved.
We can verify whether you have a valid claim over the phone. Speak to an expert now on 0800 376 1001. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Personal Injury Claim Checker.
What if I was injured as a child?
An injured child's parent or legal guardian can start a compensation claim on behalf of the child. Whether you were injured in a road accident, at the park, or in any other situation, you can begin an injury claim at any time until you are 21 years old.
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.
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

Tyldesley injury solicitor reviews
Although the Solicitors Regulation Authority regulates professional standards for solicitors in England and Wales, the actual quality of service varies widely.
Personal recommendations and online reviews will make it easier to choose the best solicitor for your needs.
Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. It is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person, in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If, for example, 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 for them.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the personal injury solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly to blame?
Even if you feel you were partly responsible for your accident, you may still be able to claim compensation.
You may also still be able to claim if something you did (or failed to do) meant your injuries were more serious than they might have otherwise been (e.g. you were knocked off your bike, but you weren't wearing a helmet).
If you were partly to blame, this is known as contributory negligence. Successful claims are often made on the basis of contributory negligence, although compensation may be reduced.
How long will my claim take?
The time needed to resolve a compensation claim and pay out compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can sometimes 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.
This table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:
Personal injury claim type
Estimated claim duration*
Road accident claims
4 to 9 months
Work accident claims
6 to 9 months
Medical negligence claims
12 to 36 months
Industrial disease claims
12 to 18 months
Public place or occupiers’ liability claims
6 to 9 months
MIB claims (uninsured drivers)
3 to 4 months**
CICA claims (criminal assault)
12 to 18 months**
**Official Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Government agency and Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) figures.
Will I have to go to court?
The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 2%) of personal injury claims go to court - typically only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved.
Can I get an early (interim) 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 out to you before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
