Why Make a Personal Injury Claim?
Claiming compensation serves several key purposes. Firstly, it is financial acknowledgement of your pain and suffering. It can also offer recompense for lost earnings if you have been unable to work while you recover, or if your injuries are such that you have had to alter your career trajectory and will, therefore, miss out on expected pay rises and pension contributions. Compensation is about giving you the financial and emotional means to heal and move forward whether you have suffered a simple fracture or are mourning the loss of your spouse in a fatal accident.
Are You Eligible to Make a Claim?
Before deciding whether or not to pursue compensation, you need to determine whether you have legal grounds to make a claim. Questions to ask are:
- Were you genuinely injured or did you fall ill?
- Was this because someone else made a mistake or acted negligently?
- Can these points be proven? Are there medical records, accident reports, photos, witnesses who would provide a statement, and any other information to substantiate your claim?
- Are you over 18, or do you have someone who is who will act as your litigation friend?
It is important to understand that for your claim to be successful, you need to show that you were injured and that someone was to blame. It is not enough to have tripped over uneven pavement but walked away unscathed (a near miss), nor is it sufficient that you believe a specific person or party is to blame if it can’t be proven and boils down to your word against theirs. Where most of your lawyer’s hours will be spent is not in negotiating with the defendant, but in researching the evidence to support your request for payment of damages.
Personal injury claims we handle include:
- Accidents at work and industrial illness
- Motor vehicle accidents, including pedestrian, cycling, motorcycle, and passenger accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Medical negligence
- Accidents abroad
How Long Will Your Claim Take?
While it’s not possible to advise exactly how long your claim will take to be resolved – there are too many variables, including your medical prognosis and whether the other party admits liability – we can give you an indication based on similar claims which were uncontested. RTA claims, trips and falls, and accidents at work are normally finalised within nine months. Claims for accidents abroad can take longer, while medical negligence claims or those involving brain or spinal damage can take up to three years.
Our goal is to obtain maximum compensation in the shortest possible time, but we won’t compromise your claim by cutting corners to speed things up.
