    Personal injury compensation

    • Personal injury compensation is an amount of money awarded to someone who has been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault.
    • You can claim personal injury compensation for any injury or illness, physical or psychological.
    • Compensation can either be ordered by a court of law, or an agreement can be reached out of court between the parties involved.
    • The sum awarded is non-taxable.
    • Personal injury claims also take into account any financial losses that your Salford accident may have caused you.

    Your accident

    You can claim compensation for a Salford accident that happened:

    • At work;
    • On the road;
    • As a result of inadequate medical care;
    • At home as a result of using a faulty product or service;
    • On holiday; or
    • In a public place.

    You have three years from the date of your accident (or from the date on which you realised that you were injured or unwell) in which to file your claim for compensation.

    How you can help your claim

    There are several things you can do to help your solicitor with your claim:

    • If applicable, taking photos of your injuries and, if possible, the accident scene;
    • Ensuring that you have seen a doctor about your injury or illness, so that it is noted in your medical record;
    • Keeping a log of any monetary losses that your Salford accident has caused you;
    • Writing an account of your accident while it is still fresh in your mind; and
    • Reporting the accident to the relevant authority. Depending on the nature of your Salford accident, this could be the police, a healthcare trust, a council, a business, or your employer.

    How we can help

    We can provide you with an injury lawyer who will work on your claim under a no win no fee contract. Because our solicitors don’t get paid unless you do, you can be 100 per cent confident that he or she will be working their hardest to make sure that your claim is a success. Our lawyers always work their hardest to get the best compensation packages possible.
