    Free initial consultation

    We offer a free initial consultation. A member of our Serious Injury team will talk to you about your accident, the effect it’s had on your life and what we can do to help


    Assigning a lead solicitor

    A lead Solicitor will be assigned to your case and they will be your main point of contact


    Contacting the other party

    If we take on your case, we’ll contact the other party or their insurance company and ask them to admit responsibility for your accident


    Early interim payment

    If the other side accepts full or partial responsibility, we can ask for an early Interim Payment of compensation before the case has settled. This can help you with any financial pressures and pay for urgently needed medical treatment or rehabilitation

FAQs about Serious Injury Claims

We deal with most serious injury claims on a No Win, No Fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. Please ask us for details.

You can claim compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced and how your injury has affected your life in the short term. You can also claim compensation for the impact your injuries will have on you for the rest of your life. These are called Special Damages.

You can also claim General Damages. General Damages cover any financial losses you’ve had because of your serious injury. This could include:

  • Loss of earnings if you can’t work
  • Treatment, therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Medication and prescription costs
  • Travel expenses to medical appointments and rehabilitation
  • The cost of mobility aids, equipment and any home alterations you may need
  • Getting a ground level property if necessary

The cost of a support worker, sometimes called a buddy or enabler, can also be claimed to help you regain the quality of life you had before the accident.

You can also claim for the cost of a private healthcare professional who can organise and manage appointments on your behalf, as well as the cost of a privately funded financial deputy should you need help to manage a large compensation settlement at the end of the case.

The vast majority of the serious injury cases we deal with settle before going to Trial, so it’s very unlikely.

The first and most important aspect of any serious injury case is to gather all of the evidence and experts’ reports on what’s happened to convince the other party’s insurance company to pay the right amount of compensation.

Only in a very small number of cases is that not possible and we have to proceed to a Trial before a Judge.
