Can you claim compensation if you are claiming disability benefits?
If you are claiming disability benefits because you have suffered an injury that was caused by someone else, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Claiming disability benefits doesn’t stop you from claiming compensation. In fact, it supports your argument that your accident and injury have caused a loss of your quality of life and ability to work.
No matter whether you are claiming disability benefits or not, if you have suffered an injury in the last three years because of someone else’s actions or negligence, you need to think about whether you could make a claim for compensation.
Why should you go through the hassle of making a claim?
Many of our clients have made two wrong assumptions before they call us — firstly, that making a claim for compensation is a great deal of hassle, and secondly, that their claim will be of a small and insignificant value. Our clients invariably find that their assumptions have been completely incorrect.

We provide everything you need and run your claim on your behalf, from start to finish. This service includes providing you with the best personal injury solicitor for your individual circumstances on a no-win, no-fee basis. We also offer you a helpline and a team of highly experienced, friendly advisers. We complete all paperwork on your behalf and coordinate any medical assessments or appointments you need. All of this is at no risk to you. If for any reason your claim for compensation is not successful, you don’t pay a our lawyer’s legal fee.
How much can you claim?
The majority of our clients are surprised by the amount of compensation they could claim. Many people assume that if they recovered quickly from their injury they won’t be entitled to compensation, but this is not the case. Even short-term injuries can receive compensation awards of thousands. If someone else caused you an injury by their actions or negligence, why should you not receive justice, even if you have since recovered?
You can see for yourself how much you could claim by two quick and easy methods:
- Use our unique online 30-second test. You will be asked just a few short questions and then we will provide you with an estimate of the compensation you could be entitled to, based on our sixteen years of experience; or
- Call our helpline. Our friendly advisers are waiting to take your call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. They will give you no-obligation advice and an estimate of the compensation you could receive based on your circumstances.
