Serious injury FAQs
We understand many people will have questions about serious injuries, and the serious injury claim process from a legal standpoint. Below, we’ve answered some commonly asked questions to give you more information:
What are the time limits for making serious injury compensation claims?
Normally you have three years from the date of injury or reasonable knowledge of injury to bring a serious injury compensation claim.
There are some exceptions to this rule; for instance, where the matter involves a child. In this case the child has three years from the date of their 18th birthday to bring a claim, therefore expiring on their 21st birthday.
It is important to speak to a legal team as early as possible to avoid any issues with limitation dates. Call us now on 0808 164 0808.
How much compensation will I receive?
The true amount of compensation will depend on your injury. We take many different aspects into account, including the severity of the injury both physically and mentally, the impact it has on your life ongoing, and other elements that can influence the size of your claim.
Your solicitor will ensure you are kept informed throughout your claim regarding compensation and will do their utmost to give you peace of mind.
I’m not happy with my current solicitor. Can I move my claim over to you?
If you have already instructed a solicitor elsewhere to handle your claim, there is no reason why you cannot approach us to handle it instead.
We can investigate the handling of your claim to date and take it from there if you wish to proceed with us. If your current solicitor has been negligent, we also offer support and guidance concerning solicitor negligence should you wish to take that further.
