How can we help?

The purpose of a Personal Injury Claim is to put the victim back into the same position they were prior to the accident taking place. Unfortunately we are unable to take away your injuries, however we can provide you with private rehabilitation in most cases free of charge to you to assist you with your recovery and get you back on your feet. We then go on to claim compensation for those injuries and other out of pocket expenses.

What compensation am I entitled to?

Compensation is split into two separate categories which we call General Damages and Special Damages. You may hear these terms a lot as we deal with your claim, they are very easy to explain. General Damages relate to the compensation paid to you for your injuries, pain and suffering. Special Damages are your out of pocket expenses. Your out of pocket expenses which we can claim may be in the form of the following:

  • Loss of earnings both past and future
  • Cost of care (if you have been assisted by family or friends as a result of your injuries)
  • Medication expenses (for pain killers and prescriptions)
  • Traveling expenses
  • Rehabilitation services (physiotherapy etc)
  • Disadvantage on the labour market (if your injuries result in you being unable to work in the same field or level of job)

There are many aspects to a Personal Injury Claim and our Personal Injury Solicitors are here to assist you and ensure you claim what you are entitled to.
