What are compensation claims for personal injuries?
A personal injury claim is designed to give you a payout if you have been injured and it was not your fault. There are a number of reasons why you should make a claim. This includes the following:
- You deserve compensation – If you have been involved in an accident, and someone else is responsible, why should you have to fund the recovery process? You deserve compensation for your injuries.
- You will need money for all of the out of pocket expenses you will encounter – There are many different expenses that can occur when you have been involved in an accident, and this includes the likes of prescription expenses, travel expenses, vehicle repair costs, childcare costs, counselling costs, and so on.
- You will receive money to cover any loss of income – You could find yourself in a worrying position if you are unable to work while you recover and you do not get any sick pay. However, if you make a claim, loss of income falls under special damages, and so you will be compensated for this.
- You can draw a line under the whole thing – When you have been involved in a traumatic experience, it can be easy to replay the whole thing in your mind time and time again, wondering what you could have done differently. A successful claim will help you to get the answers and draw a line under everything.

Criteria you need to meet to make a personal injury claim
In this section, we will take a look at three factors that will help you to determine whether you should make an accident claim.
Who caused the accident?
There is only one place to begin, and this is by determining who is at fault for the accident. In order to make an accident claim, you will need to prove that someone else made an error or acted negligently and this has resulted in your injuries. You definitely won’t be able to make a claim if you are at fault for the incident occurring.
Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
If you have suffered an injury it is imperative that you see a doctor. Of course this is important for health reasons but it is also vital for your case as well. When people suffer minor injuries they are often tempted to cope with it themselves, as they can’t think of anything worse than a trip to the hospital! However, if you are not professionally diagnosed with your injury you will not be able to prove that you have sustained an injury and so you will find it impossible to claim.
When did the incident occur?
Last but not least, the incident must have happened within the last three years if you want to make an accident claim. This is the time limit on all types of personal injury cases. You have three years from the date of the incident. The only exceptions are those whereby injuries develop over time, such as repetitive strain injury, and thus you will have three years from the date of diagnosis instead.
Five ways to find the best personal injury solicitor for your case
If you take a look on the web, you will see that there are many different solicitors to choose from, all of which claim to give you the best chance of securing compensation. However, to narrow down your search effectively and ensure you end up with the best one, you should ask the following five questions before agreeing to use their services.
- How much experience do you have in personal injury claims? You want to enquire about the solicitor’s level of experience. It is important to discover how many years they have in their locker because you don’t want to end up being someone’s practise project. You want to be confident that they have handled many cases similar to yours time and time before.
- Have you worked on many claims of this nature before? Experience is one thing, but you need to make sure it is the right type of experience. You should ask the solicitor to talk to you about some of the similar claims they have been involved in.
- Can I read some of your reviews from prior customers? Quality injury claims solicitors will be more than happy to point you in the direction of reviews that have been left by their previous clients. If they are not happy to do so or claim they don’t have any reviews, you should take this as they have something to hide.
- What are your contact details? You want to make sure that there are a number of different ways to get in touch with the personal injury solicitor you choose.
- How much do you charge for your services? Last but not least, the price is, of course, a pivotal factor. Not only do you need to discover how much the solicitor charges but you will want to find out what payment structure they work to. It is always a good idea to go for someone that is happy to work to a no win, no fee payment agreement, as you will only need to pay legal fees if your case is a success.

What personal injury claims does our team commonly see?
Here at Legal Expert, we have many years of experience and we can help you to get the compensation you deserve no matter the type of accident you have been involved in. In the sections below, you will discover more about some of the most common types of personal injury claims.
Industrial disease claims
There are many different types of industrial disease claims that we can assist with. The following is a mere handful of examples: vibration white finger, occupational asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, tinnitus, repetitive strain injury, and noise-induced hearing loss claims.
What is often the case with these claims is that you will be making a claim for something that has developed over time. Therefore, it is difficult to pinpoint an accident date, and often you will be claiming against an ex-employer. Don’t let this deter you from making a claim, though.
Clinical negligence claims
We can provide you medical negligence advice if you have been injured because of a mistake made by a healthcare professional or due to general low standards at a hospital or general practice. Common examples of medical malpractice and clinical negligence include cases of misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, poor hygiene, and surgical errors.

Fall, slip, and trip injury claims
Slips, trips, and falls are the most common. They can happen anywhere, from business premises to public pathways. No matter where you have fallen, you can claim if it was not your fault. We have helped many people with these claims, including claims for people that have fallen on the ice during the winter months.
Severe and catastrophic injury claims
Severe and catastrophic injuries can have a devastating impact on the entire family. From severe brain injuries to amputations, we can help with all cases. We can also claim if you are claiming on behalf of a loved one.
Claim compensation if you have had an accident at work
Workplace accident claims differ substantially. Firstly, you have accidents that occur in the workplace. These can be incidents that have arisen because of poor health and safety or you may work in a dangerous working environment, with the construction industry being a prime example. Aside from this, you have injuries that develop over time because of the working environment. This includes the likes of vibration white finger, industrial deafness, repetitive strain injury and various types of industrial diseases.
Do I risk losing my job if I make a claim? Definitely not! As mentioned, it is your employer’s duty to make sure the working environment is a safe one. They cannot sack you because you are making a claim. After all, if they were to do this then you would have grounds for unfair dismissal, and thus they would land themselves in even deeper water.

Road traffic accident solicitors
Road traffic accidents refer to any incident that has happened on the road. Of course, a lot of people will immediately think of car crashes when it comes to this type of claim, but you don’t actually have to be in a car in order to make a road traffic accident claim. You could have been walking along minding your own business, on the bus or a bike, for example. Some of the most common examples of road traffic accidents include a driver losing control, a car colliding with a pedestrian, someone being injured as a passenger in the vehicle that caused the incident, a vehicle hitting another vehicle from behind and more.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, you will need to report the incident immediately. In most cases, it is a must to call the police, especially if the incident is affecting other traffic or has involved a hit and run driver. Aside from this, you should take photographs of the damage to your vehicle and / or the street, as this will serve as great evidence. It is vital to get the contact details of the person that caused the incident. You will need their name, address, telephone number and the details of their insurer. It is also advisable to jot down their vehicle, i.e. the registration plate, make, and model. If there were anyone that witnessed the incident, you should also get their contact information, as witness statements can help to strengthen your case.
After you have done this, simply call us, and we will take it from here, with our road traffic accident claims solicitors ensuring you have the best chance of securing the maximum amount of compensation.

No win no fee injury lawyers
All solicitors work in different ways and this includes the payment structures they follow. You will find a lot of solicitors that charge by the hour. It is not advised to go for a solicitor who charges in this way, because you could end up with a nasty surprise when the bill comes through your door at the end. There are then those that charge per each piece of paperwork, per each consultation and such like. This is also not recommended, as new costs are likely to be popping up all of the time.
Instead you should go for no win, no fee personal injury solicitors when you want to make an accident claim. If you do this, you will not actually need any money to begin making your claim. Moreover, you will only pay in relation to the outcome of the case, as the payment structure is entirely different. This ensures that financial risk is minimised substantially.
