Do I have a personal injury claim?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or date of injury diagnosis) happened:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was at least partly to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. There are quite a few other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your injury or whether there is an untraceable defendant.
It costs nothing to find out if you have a valid claim. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. Alternatively, 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
Public place 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.

How much experience do you have of winning claims in Warlingham?
Quittance is a UK-wide panel of specialist personal injury solicitors dedicated to helping people injured in Warlingham, Surrey and across the UK, get compensated for their injuries.
The solicitors have helped 100's of claimants in Surrey get compensation for a range of accidents and injuries, from workplace accidents to public place accidents.
Local medical appointments, convenient home appointments (if required) and expert advice, mean making a claim is as convenient and stress-free as possible.
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.
Do you have to choose a personal injury solicitor in Warlingham?
As with many professional services, you do not need to choose a solicitor near you.
For the majority of claims, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
What should be considered when checking Warlingham solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
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.
