Do I have a compensation claim?
Updated: September 20, 2016
If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and a third party was at fault, our panel of award-winning solicitors can assist you with a compensation claim.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Personal injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Beginning your claim as soon as possible should enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.Back to top
How much compensation can I claim?
The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive depends on a number of criteria. Our injury calculator gives a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.

Slip and trip accidents
Official statistics underline the fact that employee slips and trips are the most common cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Surrey. These types of accident are sometimes the precursor to accidents classified under another heading like being hit by machinery, a lifting injury or an exposure to an explosion accident. Public liability claims for injuries such as broken wrists suffered on poorly maintained roads are also quite common with slips and trips having occurred in the area.
Personal injury lawyers can help with claiming work related compensation for industrial illness that include anything from asbestos related illness to pesticide poisoning.
