Personal Injury

If you have been seriously injured due to negligence, it can be distressing, and a potentially life-changing event. We understand that you will want to focus on your recovery, alongside seeking compensation.

Our team are sensitive in their approach to your matter and will guide you through the process to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.

The aim of a compensation claim is to provide financial support for an injured party, which will help subsidise any loss or suffering to which they have been exposed. The compensation awarded is also to help make up for any loss of earnings and will be intended to cover any rehabilitation or medical treatment expenses.

We are experienced in these, often, complex matters. We know that we cannot repair your injuries, but we want to ensure that you receive the right support and compensation for your accident or illness.

The level of compensation will vary with each individual matter and our solicitors will work closely with you to understand your specific needs.

Types of Compensation Awarded for Personal Injury Claims

The compensation awarded in a personal injury claim can be split into 3 types, these are:

  • General damages for pain and suffering
  • Special damages which relate to past losses

Special damages which relate to future losses.

General Damages

This type of compensation intends to cover the pain and suffering you may have experienced. It will attempt to cover the impact the injury or illness has had on your life up to the point of settlement and any potential future impact.

The sum of compensation you will receive will be dependent on your individual matter and the length of time you have experienced any pain or discomfort.

Special Damages to Past Losses

Special damages will attempt to cover loss of earnings and financial losses which have occurred after your injury or illness.

Our specialists will assist you to calculate any loss of income or expenditure which is related to the accident or illness, including medical treatment, travel expenses or payments for care.

Special Damages for Future Losses

This compensation will aim to put you back into the financial position that you were in before your accident. The sum of special damages you will be awarded is likely to be dependent on the severity of your case, and whether you can continue in your previous line of work, or whether you need to pay for medical treatments, rehabilitation, or additional care in the future.
