Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
Updated: September 12, 2016
If you suffered an injury in the last three years and another party was at fault, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Injury claims should usually be made within 3 years of the injury.
To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.Back to top

The injury compensation you are likely to receive will depend on a variety of factors. Our compensation calculator gives you a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.

Slip and trip accidents
Reported data underline the fact that employee slips and trips continue to be the most prevalent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Shropshire and the UK in 2014/15. Slips, trips and falls are quite often the forerunner to injuries filed under a different category such as being hit by another person or a lake drowning accident. Public place cases for injuries like broken wrists suffered on slippery pavements are also quite common with pavement crack trips having happened recently.
Courts recognise that a serious injury will have a life-altering impact on a Claimant. By reducing the financial pressure serious injury imposes on a Claimant, injury compensation enables people to focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
Quittance's panel of expert law firms engage with the other side's legal representatives, insurance companies and medical providers to make sure Claimants impacted by serious accidents receive the legal and medical support they need. Injuries held to be catastrophic or serious include deep vein thrombosis, eye injuries and lung cancer.
