Making a personal injury claim
Anyone who has been injured due to the negligence actions of another and who is over the age of 18 is able to make a personal injury claim. However, this doesn’t mean that if you’ve suffered an accident while under the age of 18, you are out of luck. It just means that the victim will have to wait until their 18th birthday in order to make a claim, or their parents (or legal guardian) can claim on their behalf.
A no win no fee arrangement gives you the freedom to make a claim without any financial obligation before the case is settled. If your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t be responsible for any legal fees, and if you win your legal fees will be paid out of your compensation. With no win no fee, you are able to access legal representation and make your claim, no matter what your financial circumstances. This levels the playing field and ensures justice for all.
Personal injury compensation amounts
It’s impossible to say exactly how much personal injury compensation you could be awarded. Although there are guidelines published by the British judiciary which give a rough estimate of how much compensation to award for certain types of injuries, there are other factors outside of your injury which help determine the final compensation amount. These factors include any expenses, the cost of any future medical care, or lost earnings if the injured person was unable to work, or will be unable to return to work.
The amount you are compensated will depend on a variety of factors including: the extent of your injuries, the duration of your suffering and the evidence you can provide. Once your injury solicitor fully understands the merits of your claim, he or she can give you an idea of how much you can receive.
