Personal Injury Solicitors

If you or a loved one sustains an injury that is someone else’s fault, the physical and emotional toll you are likely to be facing will be severe. Making a personal injury claim can help to get your life back on track.

In these situations, you will naturally feel concerned and anxious about the future and about how your injuries and recovery will impact your loved ones. You may need time off work, support from carers or rehabilitation while you recover, and if you are not able to work, you may be worried about how you will pay the mortgage, bills or any medical fees.

Our Personal Injury Solicitors can help you address these concerns, bring you emotional support and financial stability by claiming compensation, and connect you with the right medical professionals who can provide you with expert rehabilitation services to help you recover and return to normal life.

We have substantial experience in pursuing a wide range of personal injury claims for our clients, having previously secured millions of pounds of compensation. We generally deal with personal injury cases on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, meaning there are no hidden fees to worry about. If your case is not successful, there are no fees to pay.

We will review the details of your incident, the subsequent injuries, and the impact these have had on your life free of charge before we advise as to how we assist with your claim. You can also discover how much compensation you could potentially receive by using our Personal Injury Compensation Calculator.

Personal injury FAQs

What can you claim for personal injury?

Following a personal injury, you will be able to make a claim that covers the financial and non-financial impact you have experienced. This is likely to include:

  • Loss of income
  • Future loss of income and pension
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of amenity (being unable to enjoy the things you could before your injury)
  • Private medical treatment
  • Specialist rehabilitation and therapy
  • Care and support
  • Travel costs for hospital appointments
  • Specialist adaptions or equipment for your home and car
How long can a personal injury claim take?

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to provide an exact answer when it comes to how long it takes to get personal injury compensation. This is due to the fact the time it takes will depend on the individual circumstances and what type of injury you are making a claim for.

In accidents where your injuries are not serious, and liability has been accepted by the other party, we would expect matters to be settled in around 9-12 months. More serious injuries can take longer, particularly if liability has not been accepted. The vast majority of personal injury cases we deal with are settled within 18-24 months.

Once we have obtained more details about your own situation, we can advise accurately on how long your claim should take.

Is there a time limit for personal injury claims?

The standard time limit for personal injury claims is three years from the ‘date of knowledge’. The date of knowledge is where you were first aware that:

  • You had suffered a personal injury
  • Someone else was to blame for the injury

There are some exceptions to the standard time limit. These exceptions include where:

  • The injured party lacks mental capacity. There is no time limit to make a claim.
  • The injured party is under 18 years old. A claim can be made at any point until they turn 18, after which a claim can be brought until they turn 21 years old.

Different time limits may also apply where a personal injury was sustained abroad.

Can I make a personal injury compensation claim on someone else’s behalf?

Yes. If a loved one’s personal injury has left them unable to make a claim themselves (such as if they have suffered a brain injury) or they have died as a result of their injuries, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim on their behalf.

For fatal personal injury claims, compensation may potentially cover:

  • Funeral expenses
  • The loss of the deceased’s income
  • Loss of services the deceased provided
  • Household costs
  • Medical costs
  • Childcare costs
  • Counselling
How do they calculate a personal injury claim?

The value of your personal injury claim will depend on the individual circumstances of the injury. Various factors will be taken into consideration, including the severity of your injury, the impact on your day-to-day life and your specific needs moving forwards.

There is no real ‘average’ personal injury compensation claim.

What do Personal Injury Solicitors do?

Our Solicitors for Personal Injury will act on your behalf to secure the maximum available compensation for your claim. The service we provide may vary from case to case but will typically involve:

  • Investigating your personal injury claim
  • Gathering documentary and witness evidence
  • Gathering independent medical evidence
  • Calculate the value of your claim
  • Negotiating a settlement with the defendant and their legal team
  • Representing you in court proceedings where necessary
Can you take over from my current Solicitor?

If you feel that you have been let down by your current Personal Injury Solicitor, or you do not wish to use the Solicitor that your insurer recommends, you are within your rights to move your claim. We will welcome the opportunity to discuss your situation and help you make the right decision.

If you have any questions which we have not answered here, please refer to our Personal Injury FAQs.
