Do I have a personal injury case?
Not everyone has the same accident or the same injuries.
This means it is difficult to say if you have a case or not without further details.
However, there are two tests that most personal injury cases have to meet:
Someone at fault
To make a personal injury compensation claim, you need someone to make that claim against. In other words, someone, that is not you, had to be at fault.
Some examples of another person being at fault:
- Improper personal protection equipment (PPE) given to you by your employer
- A local authority not maintaining pavements causing an injury through a trip or fall
- Another road user not indicating correctly causing a cycling accident
- No signage or clear gangway in a store or shop causing an injury from slipping
- A defective or poorly maintained equipment at a gym causing injury
There is a statutory requirement that court proceedings for a personal injury case begin within a time limit. This time limit is 3 years from the date of the accident; or from when injuries were first noticed.
Exceptions to this rule do apply. If the injury was caused to a child under the age of 18, claims can be made up until their 18th birthday.
Secondly, if the accident has caused a serious injury – such as causing the claimant to be in a coma or suffer from serious brain injuries – then the time limits may not apply.
In special circumstances, the courts may grant an extension to the time limits. However, this is rare and only occurs in exceptional cases.
If your accident happened outside the 3-year time limit, it is still worth talking to our personal injury solicitors as there may be factors that could extend this for you.
How much compensation can I get from a personal injury claim?
Compensation claims are made up of two parts. These are:
- General damages
- Special damages
Your general damages will be awarded based on the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you have received as a result of your injuries. Loss of amenity is a legal term that relates to how the injury has impacted your quality and enjoyment of life.
The amount you are awarded will depend on the injuries you have. The more serious and life-altering your injury, the higher your compensation award will be.
Special damages are any financial losses you have accrued as a result of your injures. This can include, but is not limited to:
- Travel expenses
- Medical expenses
- Loss to income and wages
- Repair or replacement of damaged property
- Loss of earning capacity if you’re unable to return to your previous role
Your compensation claim will take all these factors and more into account.
To find out how much you could potentially claim, arrange a free initial claim assessment with one of our personal injury solicitors. With the details you provide, they’ll be able to give you an estimated claim value.Free Initial Claim Assessment
How do I make a personal injury compensation claim?
Making a personal injury compensation claim is based on three areas.
Identifying who was at fault
Gathering evidence to support your case
Negotiating with the other party to get the right compensation
Failing to get all these areas right could cause you to lose your compensation claim. For example, if you identify the wrong party to claim against, you will not get any compensation. If you gather the wrong evidence, you might lose your case. If you negotiate against the wrong band or injury, you might be awarded less than you are entitled to.
Because of this, it is important to seek a qualified and experience personal injury solicitor to help you make your claim.
A solicitor will be able to correctly identify who was at fault and be able to gather the correct and most relevant evidence. Finally, a solicitor will have the experience and knowledge to put your case together ready for negotiating. All to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
Can I claim for an accident after 3 years?
The time limit for initiating a claim is usually three years.
However, there are a number of exceptions to this, including children under 18 and claimants suffering from a mental disability.
Also, with some injuries, symptoms can take a long time to develop, such as with work industrial claims/asbestosis claims. In such cases, the time limit runs from when you were first aware of the symptoms.
Will I have to go to court for my personal injury claim?
It is unlikely.
The majority of claims are decided without the need for a trial hearing. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will have to go to court.
If you do our team has years of experience representing clients at court hearings and will be able to guide you through the process.
What are the next steps?
It is easier than you think!
Many people are put off making a claim because they worry that it might be too expensive or they are unsure if they even have a case.
Ringrose Law can take your case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
What does this mean? It means that if your case does not win, you will not have to pay any legal fees.
But it gets better, even if you do win, we cap your fees to no more than 20% of your compensation. In some cases, your legal fees may even be paid for by the other party.
