What is a serious injury?
All innocent accident victims warrant compensation, but perhaps especially those living with a serious injury through no fault of their own.
A serious injury, also termed a catastrophic injury by industry professionals, is one that compromises the victim’s quality of life, and often has a permanent effect on his or her health. Examples of a serious injury include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Full or partial amputations
- Third-degree burns
- Brain damage
These and other serious injuries forever impact the life of the victim, and warrant the maximum amount in compensation if they were caused by someone else’s negligence.

How much you could be entitled to after an accident at work in Westminster?
The effects of a catastrophic injury extend far beyond the physical.
For example, the loss of sight or a limb can mean making huge life changes, such as having to leave work permanently and consequently suffering a loss of income. You may also find it difficult to spend time with your family and pursue the things you love, and depending on the nature of the accident, you may even suffer from depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.
If someone else’s negligence has resulted in you having to deal with all of this, you can claim compensation for all of these factors, not just the injury itself. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll fight to make sure you’re not left out of pocket so that you’re able to pay for costs of medical treatments and living expenses in the short time, whilst being compensated for the emotional and physical anguish you’ve experienced.
Our thirty-second online claims calculator will provide you with a rough estimate of what you could stand to receive in a settlement. However, should you wish to get a more in-depth quote, you can call our offices and discuss your case with a claims adviser.
There’s no obligation to move forward with any legal action, but we have a nationwide team of specialist solicitors available if you wish to pursue a claim.
