Personal Injury Compensation
Welcome to our personal injury compensation page. Here we’ve provided lots of useful information and guides on the claims process, No Win No Fee agreements, and how we can help you.
We’ve also included links to some of our guides that we think you may find useful.
What Is A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
A personal injury claim is a legal action you can take if you’ve suffered an injury or illness that resulted from a third party breaching the duty of care they owed to you.
We’ve mentioned a few terms there that you may be unfamiliar with:
Duty of care – this is the legal duty a third party has to you to ensure that you do not suffer, within reason, any avoidable form of harm. Examples of those who could owe a duty of care include your employer, the controller of a space open to the public (such as the local council), or those that use the roads.
Breach of duty – there are certain steps that third parties must take to ensure they comply with their duty of care. If they fail to do so they could breach it and create the risk of someone suffering an injury or illness. An example of this would be an employer’s failure to provide adequate personal protective equipment, leaving you exposed to loud noise or harmful gases.
To successfully prove a personal injury compensation claim, you need to prove that you were owed both a duty of care and that the duty was breached. The final hurdle to overcome is proving that the accident caused the injury. This is known as causation.
Sometimes an accident may exacerbate a problem we already have, or it may accelerate a problem we were likely to develop down the line anyway. In such cases, it’s necessary to determine the impact of the accident.

Accidents At Work
When we go to work each day, the last thing we hope for is to suffer an injury. Depending on the nature of the workplace, the risks to our health could be significant. Construction sites, for example, carry the risk of moving vehicles and objects, slips, trips and falls, and falls from a height.
Wherever we work, our employers owe us a duty to keep us safe from harm to a reasonable degree. This legal duty is contained within the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
We’re specialists in accident at work claims, and below, we’ve included some of our guides:
- Accident at work claims guide
- Wet floor accident
- Rights after an accident at work
- Personal injury claims against an employer
- Fall at work claims
- Steps to take when injured at work
- Do I need a lawyer if I get hurt at work?
- Repetitive strain injury claims against your employer
- Farming accident claims
- Falling object injury claims

Public Liability Claims
Public liability refers to accidents that occur in public spaces such as parks, streets and pavements, shops, malls and supermarkets.
In the vast majority of cases, the organisation or individual in control of this space owes the general public a duty of care to keep them safe from harm, within reason. This duty is contained in the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957.
Below, we’ve included links to some guides that you may find useful when it comes to public liability compensation claims.

No Win No Fee Personal Injury Compensation Claims
You may have heard of a No Win No Fee agreement before, but do you know what it means?
In short, it’s a contract between you and your solicitor that’s built upon the condition that they do not get paid for the work they do in representing you unless they achieve a successful outcome.
- You don’t have to pay any fees upfront
- Nor do you pay any fees while the claim is ongoing
- And if the claim fails, there are no fees to pay
In a successful claim, you pay your solicitor just a small percentage of your compensation award. This covers their costs. The amount they can deduct is capped by law.
