Have you been injured in an accident?
When you suffer an injury in an accident, it can make a big impact on your life and activities. Even a mild injury can stop you from driving, working, being independent, looking after your family, and doing what you enjoy.
If you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. When the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.
Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but we make it simple to get the right advice and help, with just one free phone call. Our support will help you to recover more quickly.
Compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, housing and travel costs, and continuing care. It also compensates you for the pain and suffering. If you suffer a more serious injury, it can help you adapt your home, car and way of life.
Can you claim for your injury?
Each year, we help thousands of people to claim compensation for a wide range of injuries sustained in different types of accidents. These include:
To make a claim, generally you’ll need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
- Did the accident happen within the last three years?
- Did someone else cause the accident?
- Did you suffer injury?
The quickest way to start your claim is to fill in our online claim form. One of our advisors will then get in touch to discuss the details of your claim, and help you to get the compensation you’re due.
Each case is different, but we will work on your behalf to make sure you get the right amount of compensation. We’ll take into account:
- Your pain and suffering
- Any loss of earnings due to time off work
- Impact on your ability to work and earn in future
- The effects your injury has had on your social life and hobbies
- Costs of medical treatment, medication and home adaptation
- Any care you’ve received, even if it’s been given for free
Why claim for an injury?
Treating an injury may be a lengthy process. It can cost time and money to put things right. Sadly, some injuries are so serious that they cause permanent disabilities. Other injuries may need treatment in specialist units.
If your injury means you need to take time off work, you may find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You might also have to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.
You may not feel it’s worth claiming compensation. If your injury happened in your workplace, for example, you might even be tempted to blame yourself – but your employer has a duty to keep you safe.
Some accidents are preventable. Reporting an accident and making a claim can flag up hazardous working conditions, and help to improve a working environment. This may reduce the risk of others suffering similar accidents.
If your employer was negligent and didn’t follow regulations or provide proper training, you could claim compensation. Usually, your employer’s liability insurance will cover the compensation award, so no one will lose out.
