Our personal injury claim assessment will determine how much you can claim when you have been injured and it was not your fault.

Note: Due to the sensitive nature of personal injury claims, all submissions are reviewed by a claim professional any information is shared with the client. All clients will be called promptly and receive a complimentary phone consultation with professional advice and guidance on their claim value and next steps.

You can claim compensation when you suffer a personal injury. The amount of compensation you can claim depends on the severity of the injury.

A compensation claim also includes the effect on your life from the personal injury. The amount of compensation could increase if the personal injury stops you from driving or you lose your job.

Every personal injury compensation calculator serves only as a guide to what may be awarded.

A No Win No Fee personal injury compensation solicitor will handle your case and advise you on what you can claim.

How is my claim calculated?

Your claim is calculated by looking at the damages from your personal injury. Every case is different, and your No Win No Fee personal injury solicitor takes this into account when calculating your claim.

In a personal injury claim, you claim compensation for General Damages and Specific Damages.  You can also claim compensation in a personal injury case for any damage to your property in the accident.

The amount of compensation awarded is a total of all the damages suffered due to an accident that was not your fault.

Compensation for General Damages

General damages are the claim you make for what is known as PSLA, or the Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity you experience directly from the personal injury. 

Pain is that coming from the injury  

Suffering is the discomfort in your life as a result of the injury 

Loss of Amenity is the disruption to your daily life, such as in walking, sitting and sleeping. 

Compensation for Special Damages

Special damages cover your loss of earnings, all future care costs, and any out-of-pocket expenses you will have due to the personal injury.

Loss of earnings is for income lost directly from being off work and any reduction in income expected from not being able to return to your current type of employment. 

Future care costs include the care needed to recover from the personal injury and any long-term care and treatment costs. 

Out-of-pocket expenses are for your medical appointments, travel and accommodation and any other costs incurred after the injury. 

Compensation for Damages to property

Damages to property in a personal injury compensation claim include damage to your car, bike, or motorcycle in a road traffic accident.

You can also claim for any property damaged in your car during the road traffic accident. Your mobile phone, laptop or even the weekly shopping may be destroyed in an accident that was not your fault.

Clothing can be damaged in a personal injury accident. The paramedics may need to cut your clothes off, or you could lose your shoes at the hospital.

If a domestic appliance, such as a washing machine, malfunctions causing a personal injury, you can claim compensation. In the compensation case, you also claim for replacing the washing machine and any damage done to your home by a water leak or fire. 

Compensation is awarded to cover all costs and losses, including loss of life, medical expenses and long-term care needs. You also claim for any property damage in a personal injury accident. 

You will need records such as payslips, all day-to-day receipts, and any other paperwork showing your losses from the personal injury.

A No Win No Fee solicitor takes your personal injury claim to win you the compensation you deserve.

What are the steps in making a personal injury claim?

The steps in making a personal injury claim for compensation are easy to follow and lead to a successful claim. 

There is a reason for every step along the way, and if you follow all the steps in a personal injury claim, you will get the compensation you deserve.

The good news is that when your personal injury solicitor follows the steps, so will the defendant’s solicitor, and they can negotiate a settlement at any stage in the process.  

See a doctor to discuss your injury and how it affects your life. If the doctor believes you need further investigation, they will send you to a consultant with experience in your type of personal injury.

Only by seeing a doctor and getting their opinion will you get an idea of the severity of your personal injury, the recovery time and how it will impact your life.

Meet with a No Win No Fee personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. A personal injury solicitor can look at your case and see the extent of your injuries and how they will form a personal injury compensation claim.

Only a No Win No Fee personal injury solicitor will have the experience and the team to handle your claim. They will know what your claim may be worth and how to get the best results for you.

The solicitor gets your medical records, with your permission, to evaluate your claim. A trained and experienced personal injury solicitor will quickly know from reading your medical records the extent of your injury and how to proceed.

If they confirm you have a valid personal injury compensation claim, they will discuss the next step in the process with you.

Your personal injury solicitor sends a letter of claim to the negligent party in the next step of the case. A letter of claim will outline your case in legal terms and request that the negligent party admits liability.

The time allowed for the negligent party to reply with a written response is four months.

Getting the response from the negligent party informs your personal injury solicitor how the case is likely to go and is usually the penultimate step in the process.

The negligent party can choose to either admit liability in the case or state that they intend to defend the case as outlined in the letter of claim. When the negligent party decides to defend the case, it is known as ‘deny liability’ in legal terms.

If the negligent party admits liability, which often happens, the next part of the process involves the two sides meeting. During the meeting, the case will be outlined, and a decision made on the amount of personal injury compensation due to you.

At this stage, your solicitor will handle the meeting and advise you on what is on offer and what level of compensation to accept.

Going to court will be the next step if the negligent party does not accept responsibility. When they deny liability for your personal injury, your solicitor will have no option but to issue court proceedings.

The option of going to court will follow, too, if the negligent party admits liability but refuses to pay a fair amount to you in compensation. Issuing court proceedings is handled by your solicitor.

Very few personal injury cases make it to court, and your solicitor will advise you through the process from start to finish.

steps in making a personal injury claim

How long do I have to make a claim for personal injury compensation?

You have three years to make a claim for personal injury compensation. The three years begin from when you suffered the personal injury or from when it was diagnosed.

Personal injury compensation claims must generally be brought and court proceedings issued within three years of the injury or three years of the diagnosis.

For children, the time limit only begins when they turn 18 or three years from when they are diagnosed after turning 18. Parents or guardians can start a personal injury claim for children under the age of 18.

If a loved one has passed away, the family can start a personal injury compensation claim within three years of the date of death. The three-year limit for a person who passes away only begins from the diagnosis of the personal injury.

There is no time limit for personal injury claims for those who have a disability.
