What Are Personal Injury Claims?
A personal injury claim is an event that takes place when a person has come to harm, that was caused by the actions of a third party. A personal injury solicitor will be able to pursue the liable party for damages on behalf of the claimant. The kind of harm that can be claimed for includes:
- Physical injuries (such as those caused by an accident).
- Illness or disease (caused by health hazards that a third party exposed you to).
- Physiological damage (severe enough to prevent you from functioning in society).
- Loss or damage to your personal property (for example, damage to your car).
All of these reasons above could be the basis of a claim. Legal Expert will be able to let you know if you have a valid reason to claim if you give us a call on the number at the end of this guide.
How Do You Calculate Pain And Suffering?
One of the challenges that personal injury lawyers will help you overcome, is working out what types of damages you should claim, and how much a fair level of compensation would be.
There are two main drivers to this calculation. Firstly, how bad the pain and suffering were. Secondly. How long it lasted. This can lead to some surprising settlements. For example, the compensation paid for a person who has been killed instantly can be quite low. Simply because they did not suffer at all, for any length of time. Of course, other types of damages may be quite high, such as compensating their dependents.
At the other end of the scale, if a young person receives a serious injury such as loss of an arm or leg, then the compensation payment could be quite high. This is because they will suffer for every day of their life, and with a life expectancy of 80+ years this will be a long time.
Legal Expert will be able to advise you on the types of damages you can claim, and how much would be an acceptable level of compensation. Call us on the number at the end of this guide to find out more.

What Affects My Eligibility To Make A Claim?
In a previous section, we explained that a claim comes about due to a person being harmed by the actions of a third party. Something that can affect your claim, is whether you were partially the cause of the harm you suffered. If you were, you will still pursue any third parties involved for compensation, but you will do so at a reduced rate. Your solicitor will negotiate a percentage of liability that the third party will be liable for, and the compensation you receive will be driven by this percentage.
Legal Expert will be able to tell you both why you are eligible to make a claim, and also who might be liable to pay compensation. Call us on the number at the bottom of this guide to find out.
