Make a claim

Personal injury can occur in many different circumstances. If you’ve been injured following an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim for compensation.

Whether you were injured following an accident at work, a road traffic accident, an industrial accident or any other type of accident there are guidelines issued by the Judicial Studies Board which provide guidance to the levels of compensation you can expect to receive.

Individual cases

Each case is different and can encompass a variety of different factors. Your injuries may affect your ability to go back to work. In this case, you may also be able to claim for special damages in the form of loss of earnings.

The guidance provided only includes amounts for pain and suffering and does not include any other financial losses that you might be able to claim for.

What should I do if I’ve been injured?

If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault and you think you may be entitled to claim for compensation you should contact a solicitor specialising in personal injury law.

Personal injury law can at times be extremely complicated, so to have the best chance of success in your claim you’ll need to employ a highly skilled legal team.

What levels of compensation can I expect to receive?

The level of compensation you’ll be likely to receive is dependent on the severity of your injuries.

The following is just a guide, for an in-depth assessment of your individual case and the potential level of compensation, contact a qualified specialist personal injury solicitor.
