Who is Eligible To Make a Personal Injury Claim
If you have been affected by an Injury which is the result of someone else’s negligence then you will be eligible to make a personal injury claim. The most common reason for victims wanting to make a claim is to be reimbursed for pain and suffering.
Often those affected by a personal injury have to take time off work to recover and may have mounting medical bills to pay for. Making a personal injury claim helps to take the worry away from financial problems and gives you the space you need to recover.
Some feel that the negligence of others is not acceptable and therefore they want to make a claim in order to achieve a sense of justice – this can be common place when a loved one has had a life changing illness or a loved one has been lost.

Making a Claim – The Procedure Outlined
Once we have decided to take on your case the process is to giving us all information including:
- the date, where and how it happened
- contact details of witnesses
- details of injuries, diagnosis and treatment
- details of any trade unions you are a member of
In addition to this we may ask for proof of loss of earnings, documents for insurance policies such as household or motor insurances and any other evidence available.
We can then assess how likely it is your case will be strong enough to succeed and how much you could potentially claim.
Next is to inform the defendant, the process is:
- sending a claim letter to the defendant which details the nature of your injury and the cause (this can need a doctors opinion included)
- the defendant is requested to reply to the letter in a maximum of three months. In the reply the defendant must either admit or deny liability
- if the liability is accepted we will settle the matter for you out of court
If an offer is made by the defendant we will advise you on what monetary value we think you should be expecting, discuss with you what you are willing to accept and then provide advice on the defendants offer. If a fair amount cannot be agreed then we will advise as to whether you should proceed with legal action in court.
Why You Should Use A Personal Injury Solicitor
Whilst there are options to begin the personal injury claim process yourself, we have experience in often complicated claims which are time consuming. Generally, when a personal injury claim is opened it is common for the defendant to contest the claim which leads to a long winded case. The defendant may well try to find loopholes within the law to close the case however we have in depth knowledge of the law to be able to keep your case running when it may otherwise have been closed.
By using our expertise, we can ensure that your case is not thrown out early, and that you receive the highest compensation possible. We also ensure that you gain access to any rehabilitation and medical care that may be necessary in your recovery.
There’s a Time Limit To Claim – Waste No Time In Choosing Personal Injury Solicitors
In the UK there is a time limit of 3 years in which personal injury claims can be made. If the case is not opened within that time limit, then you are no longer entitled to claim. The date that this starts from is the date of the accident or from the date when your injury was linked to the original accident. If the case is due to the death of someone, this 3 year limit begins from the date of death. If your accident occurred outside of the UK then this time limit can differ.
