When making a compensation claim for an injury, you need to prove that the other party was responsible for your injury. Taking photographs of the damage and accident location is a good way to prove your case, and also take photographs of any damage made to your property, or keep a hold of it if this is practical. Compensation is awarded for pain and suffering as a result of your injuries, and your inability to carry out tasks as before. As well as claiming compensation for your injuries, you can also claim for financial loss suffered including prescription costs and travelling expenses or the cost of any extra domestic help required. It is also possible to claim for any lost wages or pension contributions as a result of your injuries. Damages will also be awarded to family where there is a fatality. These damages cover funeral expenses and compensation to any dependent living relatives. There are strict time limits in place for making a personal injury claim, so do get in touch with us as soon as possible to discuss your potential claim. We can look at your case in detail. Our expert personal injury solicitors will then explain the procedure and will keep you informed of your options throughout the entire claim – guiding you smoothly through the entire process. Give us a call today on 0800 280 0432 or a free initial consultation with one of our team to see how much your potential claim is worth or how likely it is to succeed.
Personal injury claims proceedings should commence within three years of the date of the accident. This is known as the limitation period. In some circumstances, the limitation period would start from the date the injury was identified, rather than the date the accident occurred – for example in claims for work-related diseases, it would be three years from the date you knew you had the condition. It is also possible to ask the court to waive the three-year limit where the claimant is suffering from a mental disability, or where the claimant is under 18 years old. If someone dies in the middle of making a claim, the limitation period will recommence from the date of death to allow their family time to continue with making a claim if they so wish. Aviation claims and claims on the Criminal Injury Compensation Scheme must be made within two years.
Our solicitors will inform you whether or not your claim is likely to succeed. The first step in the process involves the solicitor gathering all the evidence, documents and details from the client, and writing a claim letter to the person/company responsible for your injuries (the ‘defendant’). The claim letter will provide details of the accident and injuries sustained. There is a fixed time frame in which the defendant’s solicitor must reply to this letter, in which they must state whether they accept or deny liability. If the response from the defendant’s solicitor is reasonable, and a figure can be agreed, the matter can be settled out of court. If an agreement can’t be made, we will advise you to go to court to start legal action.
If your case goes to court, the case will be heard by a judge and your solicitor will carefully prepare a robust argument to support your case. Our skilled solicitors have a great deal of experience in personal injury matters and are experts in their field. Your solicitor will explain in detail what you should expect, and keep you informed every step of the way.
