Accidents and resulting injuries


Accidents leading to injury are, as the title suggests, accidents that have led to the personal injury of the claimant. The amount of compensation that can be claimed varies from a couple of hundred pounds for whiplash from a car accident to over £60,000 for more severe head and psychiatric injuries. This can of course be reduced if you are partly to blame for the accident. Accidents can happen on the road, at home or at work and provided you are not at fault you could be entitled to compensation.

Many people in involved in accidents that have resulted in injury do not make a claim for compensation either because they are not aware of their entitlement or because they think instructing a solicitor can be costly. If you have been involved in an accident in the last three years or a child in your care who is under the age of 21 was involved in an accident while they were under the age of 18 then it is worth speaking to a personal injury solicitor to pursue a claim. Injury-related accidents are not just about money and the compensation could help you, for example, towards a replacement vehicle in the event of a car crash or medical expenses.

In most cases compensation is paid by the insurance company of the accused along with your legal fees so you don’t have to worry about paying for your legal costs from the damages you receive. In many cases the defendants admit liability and the claim is relatively quick and simple. In other cases it can be more complicated and therefore it is essential that you appoint an experienced personal injury solicitor.
