    How accurate is the personal injury claim calculator?

    Our UK personal injury claim calculator is intended to provide a guideline compensation figure, based on the official compensation guidelines set out by the Judicial College Guidelines.

    The calculator isn’t able to give you an exact figure because this will depend upon a number of individual factors including the severity of the injuries, the psychological impact, the recovery time, the financial impact and the result of negotiations between your lawyer and the party responsible for your accident.

    Our personal injury claim calculator is designed to be the first step you take when you’re thinking of making a personal injury claim, but aren’t sure if it will be worthwhile. We understand the stress of your situation and our specialist lawyers are here to help get everything back on track. Use our calculator to help you decide whether you’d like to pursue your claim.

    Our specialist personal injury solicitors can help provide you with a more accurate estimate when we learn more about your situation. At the start of your claim, your lawyer will also discuss any fees and costs that apply to your claim. We offer no win no fee agreements, which mean you won’t have to pay any costs upfront, but some deductions might come from your compensation figure if your claim is successful.

    Frequently asked questions

    How do I start a personal injury claim?

    You can start your claim today by getting in touch with our specialist team. From there, we’ll look to get a full understanding of your situation, advise on whether we think you have grounds to make a claim and offer the best course of action.

    We’ll be there to guide you through the whole thing and take care of all of the complexities involved. Talk to us today on 0808 252 5231.

    Who pays the compensation for my personal injury claim?

    If your personal injury claim is successful, the party who is at fault will pay. In most cases, that party in question will have an insurance provider. We’ll negotiate with on the compensation figure.

    Can I make an a claim on behalf of someone who has died?

    There are 2 types of statutory claims under the following:

    Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions)Act 1974

    This is a claim brought on behalf of the Estate. The claim would usually be brought by the executor or administrator of the deceased’s Estate.

    The Fatal Accidents Act 1976

    This is made by Dependants of the deceased.  This may include the wife/husband/civil partner of the deceased, the former wife/husband/civil partner of the deceased, a parent of the deceased, any person who was treated by the deceased as his parent, a child or any other descendant of the deceased. It can also include any person who is or is the issue of a brother, sister, uncle or aunt of the deceased.

    Learn more here.

    How much will a claim cost me?

    Under a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, you will only pay for our services if you win your case and receive damages. If you lose your case, your accident claim will not cost you any money in legal fees. Alternative funding options are also available to you depending on the circumstances of your case. We can explore these with you when you call.

    Our lawyers will arrange an insurance policy for you. The policy covers any liability to pay for disbursements and the costs of your opponents. The premium for the policy is self-insured, which means you do not have to pay for the policy in advance.

    How long will my claim take?

    A claim can vary in terms of the time taken to complete. This will depend on a number of factors including:

    • The extent of your injuries
    • The length of time you’ve been in hospital and/or at home and off work
    • The care required
    • Whether the other side admits responsibility

    A simple claim, where there is an admission of liability and your injury is relatively minor, can be finished in a matter of weeks. However, if there’s no admission of liability and your injuries are more serious, cases can take considerably longer. This is because the case will involve more in-depth evidence gathering and consultation with experts. It may also be necessary to issue court proceedings.

    We’ll be able to give you a better idea of timescales once you have told your lawyer more about your case and we’ll always keep you updated throughout the process.

    What's the time limit for making an injury compensation claim?

    With any personal injury claim, there are strict time limits that need to be adhered to. You have three years after the injury occurred, which is usually the date of the accident, to make your claim.

    There are some exceptions to this rule for claims for medical accidents (known as medical negligence), where the injury or condition may not become apparent for years. In these circumstances, the time limit period may begin on the date that you became aware.
