What sort of injuries can I claim for?
Every year, we help injured claimants in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester and throughout the UK get compensation for:
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 exceptions?
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:
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
Injuries in a public place
HSE statistics demonstrate that employee slips, trips and falls continue to be the most prevalent accident in the Greater Manchester workplace. Slips, trips and falls are frequently forerunner to accidents classified under another heading e.g. being struck by a falling object, a fall from height or an exposure to an explosion accident. Public place (Wigan local authority) compensation claims for injuries such as torn ligaments experienced on obstructed walkways are also quite prevalent with recent street trips having happened in the area.
When someone is injured as the result of a GP or other medical professional's lack of care, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you claim compensation from the trust or private hospital liable for your injury.
Alternatively, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure if you are only looking for a better understanding of events instead of starting an injury claim. To raise a complaint against Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, for example, you can write to Cobbett House, Oxford Road, Manchester, Greater Manchester.

How much experience do your solicitors have of claims in Tyldesley?
Quittance Legal Services (QLS) is a UK-wide network of specialist personal injury lawyers dedicated to helping people in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester and across the UK, obtain financial compensation for their injuries.
Last year, we have helped hundreds of claimants across Greater Manchester get compensation for a range of accidents and injuries, including scaffolding accidents and road accidents.
With a first-rate claims record, our service is designed to be as convenient and stress-free as possible. Local medical appointments, convenient home appointments (if required) and a team of experts only a phone call away, means the claims process does not have to take over your life.
Do you work on 100% No Win, No Fee?
If your claim is not successful, 100% of the solicitor's fees are covered. This means that there is no financial risk to you.
Will I need to instruct a local lawyer?
The whereabouts of the firm are less critical as injury cases can be run by phone and email.
You will need to go with a law firm that offers national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as claimants will almost always be expected to attend a medical assessment.

Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a claimant's compensation for a fractured index finger could vary between £7,370 and £9,900 (based on 2015 market research).

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:

4 to 9 months

**Official Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) Government agency and Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) figures.
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.
