Introduction to our Specialist Personal Injury team
WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY?
A personal injury is defined as either a physical injury, disease or illness, or a psychological injury/ sickness. This can be caused by an accident at work, a car or road traffic accident, an injury caused by negligence during hospital or medical treatment, or a physical or psychological injury suffered by a victim following the course of a crime. Personal injuries will often be detrimental to the quality of life of the injured party, either temporarily throughout the healing process or permanently in cases of severe life changing damage.
HOW CAN I CLAIM FOR MY PERSONAL INJURY? IS THERE A TIME LIMIT ON CLAIMING?
We aim to make the claims process as simple and as stress-free for you as possible, as well as ensuring you receive the correct damages as a result of your trauma and bringing the negligent party to concede responsibility for your suffering.
All you need to do is get in touch with us to see how our London personal injury solicitors can help you fight back against the injustice. There are time limits, however, on making a claim – within 3 years of receiving your personal injury or becoming aware that your impairment is due to medical negligence. You can either use our contact form, or call us on 0800 437 0322 today, or you can even use our Compensation Calculator to gauge a potential amount of compensation you may receive and our professional team will give you a call back after you’ve gone through the process.
Our London-based legal team offer a free initial interview process where we will assess your needs and advise you as to what your next step should be. Our team of personal injury solicitors and lawyers will maintain close contact throughout all aspects of your legal claim and will support you through the entire process, from making the initial enquiry through to seeing the claim being fulfilled.
WILL I HAVE TO GO COURT?
In some cases, we may need to start court proceedings if for whatever reason it isn’t possible to settle your personal injury claim out of a courtroom. We aim to resolve your case without going to court and will attempt to negotiate with the other party outside of court, but at times there may be aspects of your claim that the other party’s insurers won’t accept, or there might be a chance of getting greater compensation if the case was taken to court. We will discuss the options with you and guide you on the best way to proceed.

HOW MUCH PERSONAL INJURY COMPENSATION COULD YOU RECEIVE?
As every injury is personal to each individual, the amount of compensation you could receive will also be personal to you. However, we’ve got a guide to the different levels of damages that you may experience and be able to claim for. We also have a Compensation Calculator for you to gauge roughly how much you may receive as compensation.
General damages can include physical pain and suffering, disfigurement or impairment, mental anguish, lowered quality of life due to various circumstances including loss of companionship, which is what occurs in wrongful death cases and is awarded to the remaining family members. Whatever your injury and circumstances we are confident that we can get you the compensation you deserve.
Special damages are awarded to you for quantifiable financial losses, in particular loss of earnings from missed work. These include items with specific values. For example, if you’ve been in a car accident and had your car irreparably destroyed, you can receive special damages for the cost of the car, as the value can be easily established by vehicle valuation tools. This is generally the easier of the two types of damages to prove, as there is often a record in place which allows quick valuation.
HOW MUCH WILL A CLAIM COST ME? NO WIN NO FEE CLAIMS
We operate on a no win, no fee claim basis. This means that you won’t have to pay anything out of your own pocket, and there is no financial risk or obligations to you if your claim is unsuccessful. We also offer a free consultation service to assess your situation and your requirements.
