Personal Injury Claim

Have you had a Personal Injury Claim in the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault? Well guess what? You can claim by making a compensation claim today.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is when you begin a legal case when you have suffered injury or been hurt in an accident and it was someone else’s fault. 

This starts a process against the third party/other party who was responsible for the injury insurance company. This case is taken on as a no win no fee basis and no costs to yourself if your claim was unsuccessful. 

You can start your claim if:-

  • It happened within the last three years.
  • You have suffered both financial and physical damages. 
  • It was completely the fault of the third part or partly by someone else

Personal Injury can be shocking physically, emotionally and mentally. Instant support and help is needed to ensure your on the right track to get better, recover quickly and get back to your normal life.

How much Compensation might I be awarded?

The amount that you may get paid can mainly be dependent on the level of your injury, illness and its effect on your life. You will be assessed initially on all aspects of your injuries to make sure you are compensated to the maximum level amount that you deserve. 

There are other considerations that our legal team will also take into consideration like:

  • Changes on your ability to work.
  • Loss of income /earnings.
  • Psychological damage suffered.
  • The modifications you have had to have to your home or car due to the accident injury sustained.
  • Medical and treatment cost. 
  • The daily cost incurred by the accident injury.
  • Personal help or care needed after the accident.

There is no firm idea what the possible amount of compensation will be as every case is based and assessed off its own merit. Our solicitors will negotiate the best possible compensation for you from the third party’s insurance.

Having a Whiplash injury in a road traffic accident is a common injury, however it can affect the victim in differently due to the severity levels of injuries gained.

How long does a Whiplash claim take to settle?

The timeframe for each compensation claim is dependable on a few important factors. It’s not possible to give an exact time of how long it will take to settle the claim before you start the claims process.

The length of the personal injury claim primarily depends on these two factors:

  1. Liability: Who is to blame for the accident and injury and whether the third party admits blame.
  2. The severity of your injuries and medical evidence accessing and proving the accident caused the inuries and damge.

Scenario 1: Imagine you have suffered minor injuries i.e. could be back back pain, shoulder injury, minor anxiety and the third party admits liability almost immediately in the process or early on in the claim process then your claim can get settled in as little as a few months.

Scenario 2: However, injuries that have had a big impact on you physically and are more serious the process can take longer and this may be due to your injuries being serious and you take longer to recover. This would require in-depth medical evidence to ensure the compensation for your personal injury claim you get is reflected upon your long term needs and support you require despite the third party admitting liability.

You must understand the importance of waiting until the complete and full impact of your sustained injuries have been understood before completing your claim. The reason is that you could receive more compensation if your recovery process has taken a year or more in comparison to a quick recovery of a few months for minor injuries.

If the third party refuses to accept liability and responsibility for your injuries then the investigation has to take place and would have to prove who is responsible thus the process taking longer and maybe going to court. Don’t let this worry you! We will be here for you at every step of the case and will defend the case.

Criminal Offence?

If a criminal offence was committed in the unfolding events of the accident then the police would be involved and this may include charges to be brought against the person responsible. This can sometimes extend the length of the claim as in some cases the charge is disputed and you may have to wait for the criminal case to be settled before your compensation claim is settled and resolved.

What to do when you are involved in a hit and run accident?

You must ensure you have best noted the details of what you can remember of the third party who has committed a crime by running from the scene of an accident and share these details with both the police and your insurance company. Being involved in a Hit and Run accident may also affect the length of the settlement of your claim as the police would need to be involved and an investigation between both the police and the insurance company would begin to locate the driver who committed the hit and run.
