What is personal injury?
Personal injury is an injury caused to a person either physically or mentally. Personal Injury can vary from a cut to broken bones. However, not all injuries are visible. Injuries can have short-term or long-term effects. A serious injury is one that has long-term effects.
How much compensation can be claimed?
Initially, the compensation claim is calculated in line with the Judicial College Guidelines (‘JCG’). When calculating the value of the compensation the following losses are also taken into account:
- Loss of earning
- Costs of care and rehabilitation
- Costs of mobility aid and transport
- Costs in respect of alteration or adaptation of the home, or moving home
However, the amount of compensation a person may be entitled to vary case by case and will depend on the impact of injuries on the individual. Generally, the more severe the injury and the longer the term of the effects of the injury the more compensation a person is likely to get.
What are the time limits for making a personal injury claim?
The limitation period for most personal injury claims is three years. However, there are exemptions to the rule. To find out more please contact our office on 0203 475 4321.
How long will the claim take to conclude?
A personal injury claim can be settled within a few months or it may take a few years to settle. The time limit will depend on the case.
It is important to take time to fully assess the impact of the injury and how long it will take for the injury to recover.
In most cases, it is possible to get an interim compensation payment which can help in making a payment towards medical care and rehabilitation whilst the claim is ongoing. This payment is however available only in cases where liability in respect of the claim is accepted.
How much will it cost to commence a personal injury claim?
Aston Brooke Solicitors offer a range of funding options depending on the merits of each personal injury claim.
In most cases, we offer a ‘no win, no fee agreement. Under a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement there will be no upfront payment or financial risk in respect of legal costs if the case is unsuccessful. We will redeem our legal costs only if the case is successful. The legal costs will be redeemed from a percentage of the compensation recovered.
In certain personal injury claims, we will offer alternative funding methods.
Please contact our office to find out more in respect of the funding options available to you in respect of your case on 0203 475 4321.
