What is a personal injury?

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.

Our expert personal injury lawyers have successfully helped thousands of people claim compensation and access life-changing rehabilitation and support.

Fantastic service. Rang based on an enquiry for advice relating to an on-going legal situation and received excellent clear advice and would definitely recommend this firm.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Darrel Fuentebaja
Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

  • Immediate practical help – Dealing with practical issues immediately at hand, from speaking to employers to signposting to charities and organisations able to offer support.

How will Hudgell Solicitors help me throughout my claim?

As one of the UK’s leading personal injury compensation claims teams, our solicitors have decades of experience in succeeding in even the most complex of cases and will work to secure you the compensation you need to make the best recovery possible.

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.
