What is a personal injury?
A personal injury can be both physical and psychological. The majority of personal injury cases arise from accidents at work, road traffic accidents or accidents in public places.
Negligence means another party owed you a duty of care and a ‘breach’ of that duty of care resulted in a foreseeable injury or illness that was not your fault.

How much compensation will I get from my personal injury claim?
The amount you can expect to receive in personal injury compensation depends on your specific case details. Factors affecting your compensation can include the nature of your injury or illness, the impact the negligence has on your day to day health, your ability to work and your future health, including any long-term care.
Compensation damages may be awarded for:
- Pain and suffering caused.
- Loss of earnings and future loss of earnings (such as being at a disadvantage in the labour market / loss of employability and reduction in potential earnings).
- Cost of surgery or medical procedures required after the negligence.
- Adaptions required to your home to help with daily living.
- Costs of occupational therapy requirements, such as aids and appliances to assist with daily needs.
- Costs of current or future care.
- Travel expenses for medical appointments or equipment.
How quickly can I get compensation?
There is no set answer, however, our team are dedicated to securing interim compensation payments wherever possible, helping people overcome financial worries and cover the cost of much-needed treatment, rehabilitation and often home adaptations.
We have secured many six and seven-figure interim payments in the most serious of cases relating to life-long injuries, ensuring vital support is provided whilst legal proceedings continue.
Can I make a personal injury claim on behalf of a child?
Agreed settlements will need to be approved by court, but our expert personal injury solicitors will guide you through this process.
What is the time limit for making a personal injury claim?
If aged 18 and over, you will typically have three years from the date that the accident occurred. For under-18s, there is no time limit. However, once a child reaches 18, the standard 3 year claim period comes into effect.
Will I need to go to court to claim personal injury compensation?
Personal injury claims rarely need to go to court and usually only do so in very complex cases.
