    The likely claim amount is linked to your specific personal circumstances, as it is intended to speed your recovery. This means that you would expect compensation to replace wages lost because of the injury. Also, additional childcare costs, additional transport costs such as taxis, medical bills, and your expenses for making the claim would all be included.

    You can claim for any accident or injury that was someone else’s fault. This can include road traffic accidents, medical negligence, accidents at work, slips, trips and falls in a public place. Also common are sports injuries and damage from asbestos.
