Personal injury claims - frequently asked questions

How long will a personal injury claim take?

Every personal injury case is unique, so this will depend upon the circumstances of your individual case. Some straightforward motor vehicle collisions may settled within a matter of months, where as a case involving a serious injury is likely to take much longer. We will be in a much better position to advise on this once we have completed our initial investigation of the case.

My injury occurred some time ago, can I still a claim for compensation?

The general rule is that you have 3 years from the date of your injury within which to make a claim. If the accident involved a child, then the 3 years only starts to run from the child's 18th Birthday. There are however exceptions to this rule, and it is always better to seek legal advice as soon as possible following any accident.

I am not even sure if I have a claim for compensation and wouldn't want to waste anyone's time.

We recognise that every case is different, and so we carefully assess every case on an individual basis. If we do not believe you have a case then we will tell you, as it is our obligation. It is not in anyone's best interests to proceed with a case we do not believe will succeed.

How much compensation am I likely to receive?

Again, as every personal injury case is unique, the amount of compensation will depend upon the particular circumstances of each case and the medical evidence, and other relevant evidence obtained. Until we know the extent and duration of the injuries suffered, we are unable to say how much compensation is likely to be awarded.

How will my personal injury claim be funded?

In nearly all cases, and this is subject to our early assessment procedure, we are able to offer a conditional fee agreement (no win, no fee). This will cost you nothing. There are however other means of funding, such as the existence of legal expense insurance, and we will be able to assist you in identifying at a very early stage, if this is available to you.
