How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive For My Accident Or Injury?
The amount of compensation received for different types of injuries varies hugely and is completely dependent on your specific accident or injury. This makes it incredibly difficult to answer the question of how much compensation you are likely to receive. This is why we recommend that you call us and discuss your case as soon as possible. There are some general principles behind the amount of compensation you receive, however.
Compensation claims can be thought of in two parts. The first part is to compensate you (as far as this is possible) for the pain and suffering that you have endured. This is done via guidelines produced by the Judicial College (a governing body) which set ranges of payments that should be expected for each specific injury. These ranges can be very broad, making it hard to know where in this range your personal experience is likely to fall. Our years of experience allow us to give you a more accurate estimation, based on the precise nature of your injuries.
The second aspect to be considered when deciding a compensation claim is any costs or financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your accident or injury. The aim of financial compensation following your accident is to get you back as close as possible to where your life would have been had your accident not happened. This could involve compensating you for loss of earnings if you have to take time off work to recover from your injuries, or even paying a larger sum for the loss of potential future earnings if you are unable to return to your former career as a result of your injuries. You may also need to pay for additional transportation costs, fees for additional medical treatment not easily available on the NHS or making modifications to your home in severe cases if that is needed to help you to continue to live independently.
It can be difficult to be sure that you are claiming everything that you are entitled to. Our expert personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience making sure that you are claiming for everything you deserve, giving you the best possible compensation claim to help you get your life back on track following your accident.
How Long Does It Take To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Personal injury compensation claims can take very different amounts of time to complete, which reflects the unique nature of each case. We appreciate that you shouldn’t have to wait for the compensation you deserve, so we work tirelessly to ensure that you get the payment you need to put your accident or injury behind you as quickly as possible.
Cases that are resolved quickly tend to take only a few weeks or months. Cases that are resolved quickly are usually very straightforward, where the other person accepts liability and where they are also keen to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. Claims for less serious injuries also tend to be resolved more quickly, as the payments are smaller and it is less worth the effort of insurance companies fighting over every penny.
Personal injury claims in which the other party does not accept liability, or if there are other complications, can take significantly longer than a simple case. If you have to go to court to have a judge decide how much compensation you deserve following your accident, your claim may be delayed even longer.
Can I Make My Personal Injury Compensation Claim On A No Win No Fee Basis?
We believe that everyone is entitled to seek compensation following an accident, and we don’t believe that a lack of funds should prevent you from getting the legal advice that you need. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients.
A no win no fee agreement allows us to act on your behalf to pursue your personal injury compensation claim without you having to pay anything up front. If we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t have to pay anything for our services. This allows you to seek legal help with your claim without putting yourself at any financial risk. Our system also ensures that will always receive the vast majority of the compensation you are awarded. All our fees are explained clearly in advance and we will make sure that you understand exactly how much you will receive in your pocket before you accept any offer of compensation.
In a minority of cases, we are not able to offer our services on a no win no fee basis. We will always let you know in the unlikely event that your personal injury compensation case falls into this category and we will discuss the different funding options available to you to ensure that you are still able to access the help you need.
If you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim, there’s no need to wait. Call us or claim online now and let our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors help you get the compensation you deserve.
Will I Have A Large Bill For My Personal Injury Claim If I Lose?
The important thing about making a no win no fee compensation claim for your accident or injury is that it must never put you more at risk. We will never ask you for any money if we are unable to win you the compensation you deserve. This guarantee ensures that you are able to seek justice for your accident or injury without worrying about how you will pay for it if we lose. You will never be left out of pocket as a result of trying to get the compensation you are entitled to.
Is There A Time Limit Before I Have To Make A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
All personal injury compensation claims should be resolved within a time period of 2 years from the date at which the injury was sustained. In general, we recommend that clients begin their proceedings much earlier than this, as waiting can reduce the time available for negotiation. If you are approaching the deadline, or if you would like further guidance, contact our personal injury solicitors today.
There are some circumstances in which it might be useful to wait a short while before making your personal injury compensation claim. These include when you are not certain whether you might develop other symptoms that have not yet appeared, or if you are not sure how long your injuries may take to fully heal. There is no need to delay in talking with our personal injury specialists, however, as we can use any additional time to make sure that we are putting together the strongest case we can to get you the compensation you deserve.
How Do I Make A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
Making a personal injury compensation claim follows the same process for all kinds of personal injury claims.
Your first step will be to make sure that you have the legal advice and support you will need. Our dedicated personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience making personal injury claims just like yours. You can get in touch by calling us or claiming online and we will get back to you at a time that suits you.
Our first step is to write to the person responsible for your accident, explaining that you are making a personal injury compensation claim, that you consider them to be liable (the legal term for being to blame) and giving them a deadline by which to respond.
If the respondent denies liability, we will need to gather and present evidence to them, demonstrating that they were at fault for your accident. This evidence can take many different forms. It might be pictures of the location where your accident took place, videos of the accident happening if these are available or statements from people who were there when your accident happened who can explain the exact situation. More technical legal and medical arguments may also be relevant. Almost all employers will accept liability, once presented with the evidence that we gather.
When liability has been agreed, we are then able to begin negotiations to agree the compensation amount that you will agree. The other side will often put forward a ‘lowball’ offer, which is far less than you are entitled to, in the hope that you will either accept it, or that you will reduce your expectations of the amount you are likely to accept. Our years of experience mean that we are able to identify these kinds of techniques and make sure that you don’t fall for them. Although we will offer you guidance, we will always follow your lead. We will notify you of every offer that is made (even those we think you should reject) and the final decision over whether to accept or reject any offer will always be yours.
Almost all of the personal injury compensation claims we deal with are resolved without needing to go to court. This is because most people are willing to accept liability, once they have been presented with the relevant evidence. It is also usually possible to agree on a compensation amount that seems fair to both sides. If these things are not possible, however, you may need to go to court and ask a judge to decide. In the unlikely event that you are in this position, don’t worry. We will support you throughout, and help you to get the compensation you deserve.

I Suffered A Personal Injury. Can I Claim Compensation?
Following an accident, many people just like you are left unsure as to whether they should make a personal injury compensation claim. There are a few conditions that are required before you are entitled to make a compensation claim, but they are very simple and most people will be able to claim.
The first thing to note is that you must have sustained an actual injury as a result of your accident. This injury does not need to have been exclusively physical, as psychological damage is also recognised as important. You cannot make a personal injury compensation claim for near misses, however, or if you have an accident but are not injured in any way.
It is also necessary for someone else to have to been to blame for your accident, for you to be able to make a compensation claim. This person or organisation does not have to have been the immediate or direct cause of what happened, but they do need to have been in some way responsible for your welfare and making sure that you are not put at risk. For accidents or injuries that occur at work, it is very easy to fulfil this criteria, as your employer has a legal responsibility to look after your health and safety.
The person or organisation that you are claiming against must also have been able to predict something along the lines of what happened to you. This does not mean that you have to prove that they did anticipate it, but a reasonable person who was taking their role seriously in terms of health and safety should be able to foresee the danger.
The final requirement is that they must have failed to take enough measures to keep you safe. Even if they have taken some measures, you are still able to claim if these were clearly inadequate.
If you have suffered an accident and believe that you fit these criteria, or if you are unsure and would like to discuss it further, call us or claim online today to arrange your free, no obligation consultation.
What Should You Do Following A Personal Injury?
If you have suffered an accident, the most important thing is always to make sure that you get the medical treatment you need. Once you know that you are safe and being taken care of, there are a few things that can help to get you the compensation you deserve.
It is essential that you make sure that you remember clearly all of the circumstances surrounding your accident. The more details you are able to provide, the better your evidence will be. Writing down exactly what happened and the circumstances that led to your accident, especially if you can do it soon afterwards, can help you to remember far more details and it can also be used as further evidence.
It can also be very helpful for you to have a record of the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your accident. When you come to make your compensation claim, the testimony of people who saw what happened can be very convincing and will provide a great deal of support when we demonstrate who was to blame for what happened to you.
You may also want to try to obtain photographs or videos which might be relevant to your case, especially of the location in which your accident occurred, provided it is safe to do so.
The most important thing that you can do to help with a future personal injury compensation claim, however, is to call us or claim online today. This will allow you to get the expert help you need to make your personal injury compensation claim as stress free and straightforward as possible.
