Lawyers personal injury specialists and compensation providers

Lawyers personal injury specialists and compensation providers look for basic key facts.

Lawyers personal injury specialists want first to see eligibility. Broadly speaking, three conditions of eligibility apply if a claimant wants to claim compensation for personal injury

It must not have been their fault

He or she must have needed medical treatment

The claim must be started within three years

There are various ways a claimant can go about it. A compensation provider is a company which specialises in allocating the right specialist lawyers personal injury victims need for their particular case. A claimant can go directly to a firm of solicitors or he can seek expert independent advice from organisations such as The Law Society. If it is an accident at work, his professional organisation or trade union may be able to advise. If using a compensation provider, such as Accident Advice Helpline, check they are regulated by the Ministry of Justice. AAH has a 30-second online test to help claimants decide whether they can start a claim. They can also talk to our online friendly advisors.

The term ‘personal injury claim’ covers a wide range of law, so it is important to find the expertise for a claimant’s circumstances. Traffic law covering road traffic accidents differs from employment law or the law under which different public services operate.

The second big influence is whether the claim is worth pursuing in monetary terms. Usually, a claimant is driven by the distress and the inconvenience of injuries which have disrupted his normal life and also caused him financial hardship. The law takes these things into account when considering the award. Most lawyers personal injury compensation winners will tell you, achieve out of court settlement. In these cases, an offer is made by the party carrying the liability and if the claimant accepts the offer, all well and good. It is usually when there is a significant disagreement over the value of the claim that it goes to court.
