Here at Personal Injury we like to view things in pretty black and white terms. Of course, life is a complicated business but occasionally there are circumstances in which it’s pretty clear who’s in the right and who’s in the wrong. If you’ve been injured as the result of an accident which wasn’t your fault, then we think the person
After all, you’ve already suffered the immediate effects of the accident itself, so why should you continue suffering in the future. A compensation claim will be the first step towards easing this suffering and the amount of compensation awarded will be made up of three separate components:
Immediate Expenses – these include things such as medical bills, prescription fees and travel expenses
Ongoing Expenses – suffering an injury may result in a loss of earnings due to time spent off work. If your injuries are such that your future earning power will be affected, then this loss of earnings will be taken into account when arriving at a figure,
No amount of money can ever truly make up one hundred per cent for the suffering, pain and stress caused by an accident, but what it can do is help the victim take their first steps toward recovery, as well as ensuring that they aren’t affected financially as well as physically and psychologically.
We can’t make any guarantees about whether you’ll be awarded compensation, but what we can do is promise that we won’t take on a case unless we think the person involved has a genuine chance of winning. That’s why we operate on a No Win No Fee basis, which means that our clients don’t have to pay any money up front and also that, if they’re successful, they’ll receive every penny of whatever amount they’re awarded.
A successful personal injury compensation claim calls for two requirements. Firstly, it must be established that the victim has been caused personal injury. This could be either a physical injury or a psychological condition such as depression or anxiety. Once this has been established, it must be demonstrated that the accident or situation which caused this was a direct result of another party’s negligence, whether this party is an individual, or a larger body or organization.
Amongst the personal injuries which we deal with most often are:
- Road Traffic Accidents
