A stress-free personal injury compensation claim
Personal injuries can be very traumatic. After all, you’ve been hurt and might be in a lot of pain as a result. It can take a while to get back to normal, which means, you may not be able to work or earn a wage. Add in the fact that someone else is to blame, and you’re bound to feel upset and frustrated.
It’s certainly a tough time for you and your family. Which is why, as experienced personal injury solicitors, we aim to make the process of claiming as smooth, stress-free and efficient as possible.
Getting rightful compensation is important. But not as important as your recovery. And so, whilst you concentrate on getting better, we can deal with the legal side of things on your behalf. Not only can we advise on your eligibility to make a personal injury compensation claim (and the likelihood of its success), if you wish to move forward, we can take care of the full process for you.

Personal Injury Claim FAQs
A personal injury claim is a formal legal process, in which you apply for compensation for an injury. Importantly, that injury must have been caused by someone else. And you will need to appoint a specialised solicitor – such as Injury Lawyers Direct – to prove the other party was responsible.
The claim is typically made on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so you don’t have to worry about large legal bills and hefty solicitor fees. If the case fails, you don’t pay a penny. But if you win, any fees will be paid by the other party’s insurance policy – along with the compensation that you’re owed.
Most personal injury claims can be settled without going to court. Your solicitor will simply negotiate with the other side, or arrange mediation and settlement meetings, until a satisfactory outcome has been reached. But if a court hearing is required, the chance of success is still fairly high.
Thousands of people are injured in the UK every year. Of course, you should be able to go about your life safely. But accidents happen and, if yours wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim.
Typically, you will be eligible to make a personal injury claim if:
- you (or a child under the age of 18) have suffered an injury or illness
- that injury or illness was caused by the negligence or carelessness of others
- the incident occurred within the last 3 years
It’s important to point out that, not all personal injuries are visible, like a bruise or broken bone. For example, you may have been affected psychologically or emotionally by the incident, or it may have had a wider impact on your day-to-day life. In which case, you’re still a viable candidate.
If you’re in any doubt about your eligibility to claim, the best option is to get in touch. We’re here to listen and can advise on your individual circumstances. And there’s no need to worry; if you are eligible, we’ll never rush you into a decision. It’s entirely up to you whether you proceed with a personal injury compensation claim. We just state the facts and offer our help if you want it.
There isn’t a simple answer to this question. The exact amount that your personal injury claim is worth will depend on many factors, including the type and severity of the injury and its effect on your life.
Two types of compensation can be granted. The first is known as ‘general damages’ and compensates you for any pain and suffering experienced. The second is called ‘special damages’ and this reimburses you for any financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. But, until we’ve considered your circumstances, it’s impossible to say how much you will be paid for each.
What we can say, however, is that we have many years’ experience of personal injury claims in the UK. We value claims accurately and always strive to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
