What Are The Most Common Types of Personal Injury Claim?

According to the Association of British Insurers, the most common types of personal injury claim in the UK are for:

  • Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs) – About half of all personal injury claims in the UK are claims made in respect of road traffic accidents. This could be a car, bike or on foot, collisions and crashes can happen and you can be injured when it wasn’t your fault. If this is the case, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
  • Accidents at Work – Accidents at work are common and your employer has a duty of care to protect you and if they have been negligent, there may be eligibility for a claim. Don’t assume that to have an accident at work means you have to be on a construction site or in a factory. Many accidents at work happen in other premises too such as offices.
  • Accidents on Public Property or Business Premises – This can includes trips, slips and falls in the street or in public places such as a shop. Depending upon the exact circumstances, you may be eligible to claim compensation especially if the shop or council or example have not done everything they should to ensure their shop or street is hazard-free.

The Claim Procedure

Once our specialist personal injury solicitors have thoroughly assessed your case and taken it on then so begins the claim procedure.

  1. To begin with, your Macclesfield personal injury solicitor will gather all the details and evidence required for your claim. This can include:
    • Date of the accident
    • Location of the accident
    • How the accident happened
    • The details of your injuries, medical opinions and details of all the treatment that you have received.
    • Proof of any financial expenses that are due to the accident
    • Proof of any loss of earnings
  2. We will then send a claim letter to the person/people that you are holding responsible for the accident or injury. This spells out what the injury was and what happened.
  3. The person you sent the claim to (known as the defendant) now has a limited period in which to reply. They must accept or deny liability for the injury.
  4. If they accept liability, the matter may well be settled out of court and your solicitor will negotiate a fair settlement for your claim.
  5. If they do not admit liability or if they do but you do not come to agreement on a settlement then the matter may be settled in court in front of a judge. Very few cases will make it to a courtroom, however.
  6. Throughout all of these stages, you can rest assured that your solicitor will work with you to explain what is happening and explain everything fully so you understand all of your options.

How Much Compensation Will You Receive For Your Injury?

Whilst all cases are different and it is not possible to put an exact amount on how much you will receive as part of a settlement, our solicitors can give you a reasonably good idea. This is because our solicitors have been dealing with personal injury cases in Macclesfield and the surrounding Cheshire areas for many years and are at the cutting edge of legal knowledge and opinion on these matters.

General Damages

This figure is what you would receive to account for the pain and suffering caused by your injury or injuries. We’ve included some examples figures below, as listed in the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). This legal publication is where legal professionals find a list of injuries with their appropriate levels of compensation listed alongside them. Can be affected by how severe the injury is and whether there is any lasting damage, amongst other factors.

Mental anguishThe fear that you’re about to die or have your lifespan reduced£4,380
Post-traumatic stress disorder(c) Moderate - you will have made a good recovery and lingering symptoms will not be severely disabling£7,680 to £21,730
Hearing loss(vi) Slight noise-induced hearing loss, but no tinnitus - or vice versaUp to £6,580
Chest(f) Injuries that lead to collapsed lungs, but the injured party will have completely recovered£2,060 to £5,000

LegSevere - (i) injuries that are as serious as possible without being amputated£90,320 to £127,530

Special Damages

There are other sums that can be included as part of your compensation payment. Special damages are made up of the extra monetary outgoings and/or losses you have experienced due to your injuries. Loss of earnings, damage to your property and medical bills are all examples of this. You must have evidence of these expenses. Receipts are a good way of proving some of these outgoings, for instance. Without proof, you’ll find it much trickier to be reimbursed,
