How can we help you in making a personal injury claim?
We see all too often how injuries, both minor and serious can have a massive impact on an individual’s life, and on those around them. It is therefore paramount that everything is put in place to best aid recovery, and help cope with the challenges being injured brings.
We can advise you regarding the procedure of bringing a claim, including notifying the Defendants and their insurers, formulating the allegations of negligence and/or breach of statutory duty, obtaining the evidence necessary to prove your claim including medical evidence setting out in detail the injuries that you have sustained, the treatment that you have received and containing an opinion and prognosis for the future. We can conduct negotiations in respect of both liability and quantum.
There are two types of damages that you can recover, namely damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, otherwise known as general damages. Damages that are readily ascertainable, such as loss of earnings, damage to property or personal items and medication or medical expenses are known as special damages.
Personal Injury claims must generally be brought within 3 years of the date of the accident or the date that you knew that you sustained serious injury or illness as a result (for example, in disease claims).
We will assess your immediate needs and arrange appointments, for example, physiotherapy, if necessary.
