Frequently Asked Questions about personal injuries
How do personal injury claims work?
We start the process by sending a claim letter to the person or organisation you believe is responsible for your injury, setting out the details of your injury and how it occurred. The recipient will have a fixed period of time to respond to the letter – this can be up to 3 months, but may be less depending on the circumstances.
If the defendant accepts responsibility for your injury, we will attempt to negotiate a fair compensation settlement with them. If they do not accept liability, or we cannot agree a fair settlement, we can apply to a court on your behalf for a ruling on whether you are entitled to compensation and how much this should be.
Is there a time limit for personal injury claims?
In most cases you will have up to 3 years from the time of an injury to start a compensation claim. However, the exact time limit will depend on the circumstances, so it is advisable to consult a solicitor at the earliest opportunity.
How long do personal injury claims take?
Depending on how the claim proceeds, personal injury claims can be resolved in weeks, months or even years. In general, if the defendant accepts liability and we can swiftly agree a financial settlement the matter can be resolved very quickly. However, if the defendant disputes their liability or the amount of compensation you are entitled to, cases can take much longer.
Certain personal injury claims can now be resolved relatively quickly thanks to the Ministry of Justice’s streamlined settlement process. This means that Road Traffic Accidents, employer’s liability cases and public liability cases valued between £1,000-£25,000 can often be resolved in 4-9 months as long as they are relatively straightforward.
Our personal injury solicitors can advise you on how long your case is likely to take so you have a clear idea of what you are committing to before deciding to pursue a claim.
How much can you get for a personal injury claim?
The amount of compensation you are entitled to will vary considerably depending on the nature of your injuries, their impact on your life and the level of liability the defendant admits to or a court finds them guilty of. We will advise you at the outset of how much you are likely to be able to claim, so you have a realistic idea of the level of compensation you may be able to receive.
