A guide to claiming compensation for a Teignbridge accident

If you have been injured as a result of a Teignbridge accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be thinking about claiming compensation. This short guide outlines the basics about personal injury compensation to help you reach a decision about whether or not to claim for your injury.

What is compensation for?

Personal injury compensation is there to help you get your life back in order after your accident. To claim, your Teignbridge accident needs to have been someone else’s fault, and to have taken place within the past three years.

If your claim is successful the money you receive will include compensation for whatever injury (or illness) you suffered as a result of your Teignbridge accident, and the inconvenience it caused you. You will also be reimbursed for any financial costs or losses that arose from your accident. You can claim for:

  • Travel expenses
  • Money spent replacing clothing and personal items damaged in your accident
  • Child care costs
  • Lost earnings
  • The cost of private medical treatment, such as physiotherapy, counselling and osteopathy
  • Money spent on event tickets or holidays that you were unable to attend because of your injury

It is important to keep track of your costs; please make a note of anything that you spend, and keep hold of receipts, bank statements, credit card statements and payslips. If you are unsure about whether or not something belongs on your claim form, keep it in mind and your solicitor will be able to give you further guidance when you claim.

Your injury/ illness

You can claim compensation for any injury or illness, including psychological conditions such as stress, depression and anxiety. Please don’t be embarrassed about mentioning the psychological repercussions of your ordeal to your doctor, and your solicitor. A psychological illness can be just as debilitating as a physical injury, sometimes more so. You have every right to seek compensation for this.

Filing your claim

To maximise the chances of your claim being successful you will need to use a solicitor who specialises in injury law. And to minimise the financial risks, use a solicitor who will handle your claim under a conditional fee agreement. The conditional fee agreement, better known as ‘no win no fee*’ means that you can get your claim started without having to pay any money upfront, and you won’t have to pay anything at all if your claim is unsuccessful.

When you first discuss your Teignbridge accident with your solicitor make sure that you tell them anything you can remember about your accident, and be candid and honest about the effect that it had on your life – your solicitor will be on your side, and will want to get you the best compensation package possible.

  • The majority of injury claims are settled out of court.
