What is Personal Injury

What Is Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury is any harm that has been done to your own body, mind or emotions.

This can include car accidents, slipping and falling accidents, dog bites, fires and burns injuries, sexual assault claims, impaired driving incidents (such as road rage), defective products or medicine claims (including medical malpractice lawsuits), wrongful death claims related to fatal accidents, and defective drug claims.

  • You have been physically injured as a result of being involved in an accident
  • You have been emotionally damaged from the incident, such as a sexual assault
  • You have been disabled as a result of the accident, either physically or mentally
  • You have lost financial income due to being unable to work after your injury

In every case, the main goal is to use legal action for those affected by an incident to receive compensation. It's not meant to be a punishment but rather a way of righting or redressing the wrong.

What Counts as a Personal Injury?

What Counts as a Personal Injury?

In the most basic sense, a personal injury is any physical, emotional, and financial damage that has been incurred as a result of an accident. This can include:

  • Bodily injuries such as broken bones or deep lacerations
  • Psychological damages like depression, anxiety, or PTSD
  • Illness or infection due to exposure to harmful conditions or substances

Any of these damages can be included in a personal injury claim. Any situation that leaves you physically, emotionally, and/or financially worse off than before might qualify as one. Our qualified solicitors know how to handle all types of personal injury compensation claims. We take care of everything from start to finish, including legal paperwork and all medical evaluations.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Here are some common examples of personal injury claims:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Road traffic accidents typically occur when two or more parties are involved in some collision. The most common forms include car crashes, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle collisions with cars or trucks.

Slip and fall accident claims

These accidents occur when someone has suffered harm on another individual's property. They usually happen because the victim did not watch where he or she was going, or some hazardous condition (such as an uneven sidewalk) was not kept up to usual standards.

Medical malpractice claims

In these cases, an injured party has been the victim of a doctor's mistake or error in judgment. This can include a delayed diagnosis or incorrect surgery or medication.

Animal attack claims:

These accidents occur when a wild or domestic animal attacks a victim. This can include anything from cows and horses to birds and household pets.

Construction site accidents

These types of accidents usually involve workers handling heavy machinery or operating other potentially dangerous equipment. They typically occur because the workers do not adhere to the proper safety regulations or possibly use faulty equipment.

Sexual assault or rape claims

The victim in these cases has been forced into some sexual interaction against their will. They can also occur because someone was unconscious, unable to resist, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

Product liability claims

In these cases, a victim has been physically harmed because of a defective or dangerous item in some way. This can include medication, tools, food items, cars and other motor vehicles, or children's toys.

Nursing Home Abuse

When a patient is placed in the care of a nursing home facility, they expect to be treated with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, these places sometimes have an inadequate staff or violate other safety protocols, resulting in physical harm or even death to their patients. Our personal injury lawyers specialise in such types of claims.

In general, any time you have been the victim of an accident that has led to physical harm – either to your body or your belongings – you can pursue a personal injury claim.

Compensation in Personal Injury Claims

Compensation in Personal Injury Claims

In every personal injury case, three types of compensation are available: restitution, reimbursement, and reparation. Restitution pays for any physical and emotional damages you have suffered as a result of your injuries.

Reimbursement compensates for any financial losses associated with the accident, including any lost wages, medical bills, or property damage that occurred as a direct result of the incident. In some cases, reparation can be used to pay for any future loss that is likely to occur.

What Does Not Lie under Personal Injury Claim?

What Does Not Lie under Personal Injury Claim?

There are some things you cannot claim compensation for when it comes to personal injury claims. These include:

  • Self-inflicted injuries
  • Injury sustained while committing a crime.
  • Property damage that was not directly related to the accident
  • Damage whose only cause is old age or natural wear and tear.

How long do I Have to File a Claim?

Depending on the type of personal injury, you may only have a few weeks, months, or even years before your claim expires. Each case is unique and has its own set of rules and regulations surrounding it. Generally, you have up to three years to file a claim for personal injury. The faster you act, the higher the chances that you’ll get your deserved compensation.

What Is the Most Effective Way to Make a Personal Injury Claim?

What Is the Most Effective Way to Make a Personal Injury Claim?

The most effective way to pursue a personal injury claim is by contacting an experienced lawyer at your earliest convenience. An attorney will be able to represent you in court and guide you through the entire process.

This will ensure that all necessary information is readily available and that you receive the maximum compensation possible.

Keep in mind that the sooner you act after an accident has occurred, the easier it will be to prove fault.

What Can I Gain by Hiring a Personal Injury Claim Lawyer?

What Can I Gain by Hiring a Personal Injury Claim Lawyer?

From the moment you are injured, you have many things to worry about. You are not just dealing with physical pain that causes discomfort but also medical bills and lost wages.

By having an attorney on your side, you will not need to worry about doing all the work yourself. Your lawyer will take charge of helping you file paperwork, negotiate with insurance companies, and fight for you in court if it comes down to it.

Keep in mind that the sooner you act after an accident has occurred, the easier it will be to prove fault.Hiring a lawyer prevents insurance companies from taking advantage of you due to your lack of experience with these matters. Hence, you’ll be more likely to gain a bigger settlement.

Insurance Adjusters' Strategies for Minimising Personal Injury Settlements

Insurance Adjusters' Strategies for Minimising Personal Injury Settlements

Many insurance companies hire some of the best lawyers in the business. Their goal is to prove that you are partially to blame for your injuries, which means they would not have to pay as much compensation. To deny or significantly shrink your compensation, they will:

  • Attempt to prove that you lied about your medical condition or the extent of your injuries. Some insurance companies will even try to accuse you of malingering, which means faking an illness to get more compensation money.
  • Deny the case by claiming that you are not their client.
  • Intimidate you by making it seem like your case is so complicated that you need their help to win. However, they have very little intention of actually helping you out.
  • Pressure you into accepting a lower settlement so that they do not have to pay as much in legal fees.
  • Convince you to take a lower settlement to keep your premiums from going up.
  • Try to make you think you do not have a case against them, potentially resulting in you never receiving compensation for your injuries.

UK accident and personal injury attorneys know the ins and outs of insurance tactics designed to throw you off balance. They know the right questions to ask to get all the information they need.

They will make sure that you are not denied compensation for any reason whatsoever.

How Do I Choose the Best UK Personal Injury Lawyer?

How Do I Choose the Best UK Personal Injury Lawyer?

When it comes to hiring a personal injury lawyer, do not make the mistake of thinking that any old lawyer will do. You need an experienced and reliable attorney on your side.

An experienced personal injury lawyer started just like any other lawyer—they began by completing law school. The difference is that these attorneys have specialised in specific fields of the law and have the required experience to help you out. They:

  • Spent years studying and learning about personal injury laws, medical procedures, and insurance policies. They also worked as an intern or legal assistant for several attorneys during law school.
  • Spent weeks, if not months, inside of a courtroom as they tried their cases under the supervision of their mentor. This gave them invaluable experience that they use today when handling your case.
  • Spent hours upon hours researching the laws of insurance policies, medical coverage, and personal injury compensation to make sure that they can protect you from any possible denial of your claim for benefits.

While many lawyers love the thrill of a courtroom battle, personal injury attorneys stay away from the courtroom as much as possible. Instead, they focus on protecting your rights and working with insurance companies to resolve your case outside the courthouse.

Our firm takes pride in being an honest law firm. This means that we will not take on a case if it seems likely to be closed out before trial or close to it. We never try to force our clients into accepting anything less than what they deserve without first giving them adequate time to think about their options. We also never pressure our clients into taking a settlement that they are not happy with. We will, however, advise you of the current status of your case and what you can expect in upcoming negotiations to help you make an informed decision.

How Much Do Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?

How Much Do Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?

Do not be intimidated by the idea of hiring a personal injury lawyer. While it is true that they can cost you, this is because they are worth every single penny. The average personal injury attorney charges 25% of your settlement (plus expenses), and attorneys with experience and excellent track records tend to charge the maximum allowable percentage: 33% of your settlement.

We will not charge you anything before winning your claim and getting you the compensation you deserve. If you are unable to recover the costs of our services, then that is just too bad. We have no desire to profit from your misfortune. You will never be charged if we fail (which rarely happens).

What if I Can't Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

What if I Can't Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Personal injury lawyers understand that you may not afford to pay them right away. They also know that their services are worth every penny. Most will agree to work on a contingency basis, which means they get paid from any money awarded to you from the defendant's insurance company. In this way, if you receive a settlement from the insurance company, they get paid for their services based on a percentage of that amount. However, if no settlement is won or reached, you will not have to pay them anything at all.

You have absolutely nothing to lose by hiring the best personal injury lawyer that you can afford. Also, rest assured that their main goal is to win your case and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for all of your pain and suffering. The last thing they want is for you to lose out on an opportunity to collect a settlement award because they were not adequately represented by a skilled attorney who knows what to do.

How Long Does the Legal Process Take in a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims can take anywhere from a few months to several years. The exact time frame depends on several factors, such as the severity of your injuries, whether or not you have to undergo multiple surgeries, how long it takes for you to recover (or if you ever do), and the willingness of the defendant's insurance company to negotiate.

Once our law firm is on board with your case, we work hard to ensure that every detail is taken care of. We will submit the proper paperwork to the appropriate agencies, follow up on your behalf with doctors and other involved parties if needed, and make sure that you are fully informed about every aspect of your case.

What Are the Different Ways of Resolving an Injury Claim?

What Are the Different Ways of Resolving an Injury Claim?

In personal injury claims, there are four ways in which a settlement can be reached. These include:

  • 1. Without Litigation (Common)This is by far the most common and easiest way to agree on a settlement amount for your case. Usually, both sides agree that it would be best to avoid going to court and wasting valuable time, energy, and money. Instead, the insurance company (or the defendant) offers you an amount of money to end your case.
  • 2. Less Common but Faster Ways - Offer in CompromiseAn offer-in-compromise is an agreement that is reached when one side agrees to accept a lower amount than what is due to them to avoid going to court. Although this can take less time than filing a lawsuit, it is still much faster and easier when both sides agree that they want out of the situation and that all that needs to be done is to come up with an amount that will satisfy both sides' needs.
  • 3. Litigation (Very Common)This is the most common way your injury claims will be settled if you decide to go this route. It involves presenting your case before a judge who will listen to all of the evidence and decide whether or not you are due compensation for your injuries. After that decision has been made, the defendant will either agree to pay the total amount of what has been awarded or decide to take the case to trial and fight for a lesser amount.
  • 4. Trials (Most Common)Most personal injury cases go all the way through court because many defendants refuse to admit that they are responsible for injuries, even if it is pretty clear that they are. If you have gone through a personal injury suit or your insurer has, you know that the entire process is lengthy and stressful for everyone involved. However, it does not have to be so hard on you because hiring a good lawyer will make all of the difference when it comes to winning or losing your case in court.
Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Court?

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Court?

It is impossible to tell whether or not your injury case will go to court or whether or not you will have an easy time reaching a settlement. This is because every case has different circumstances. It is up to the insurance company, judge, and lawyers to determine what needs to be done to settle the issue on time.

There are many reasons why personal injury cases go to court. Still, most of the time, it is due either to the defendant's unwillingness to admit responsibility for the injuries or because the insurance company refuses to pay what they are liable for. If this happens, all that can be done is to present your case before a judge and hope that the defendant or insurance company is willing to do what's fair and take responsibility for your injuries.

If you want to avoid going to court, there are a few ways to try to achieve this goal. One way is by hiring an independent lawyer who will negotiate with the defense on your behalf and attempt to convince them that it would be wisest to settle outside of court.

If this does not work, then your lawyer will have no choice but to take the case to court in an attempt to persuade a jury or judge that you are deserving of compensation for your injuries.

What Evidence Is Needed for a Personal Injury Claim?

What Evidence Is Needed for a Personal Injury Claim?

When you file a personal injury claim, the needed evidence depends directly on what your injuries are and how serious they are. However, collecting as much information and proof as possible is always recommended to make it easier for your lawyer when trying to settle outside of court.

The most important types of evidence you will need will include information about your injuries, what caused them, and how they occurred. You will also need to provide receipts for any medical bills that you have paid and documents showing any other types of expenses that you may be due compensation for.

You should also make copies of any evidence that proves who the defendant is and how he or she is responsible for your injuries. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene or any damage done because this will make it easier for the lawyer to review your case.

The last thing you should do when preparing to file your personal injury claim is to keep every piece of communication that has occurred between you and the insurance company or defendant. If you are trying to settle outside of court, then this is especially important because it can show how many times the person has responded to your questions and what steps they have taken to resolve the situation.

How Is Personal Injury Compensation Calculated?

How Is Personal Injury Compensation Calculated?

Compensation for your personal injury is determined by how severe your injuries are, what type of treatment you need, the number of days that you were unable to go to work or do anything else, and whether or not it has had a lasting impact on your life.

The severity of your injury can be measured by how long you will need medical care, how much pain you are in, and whether or not you will be forced to change your daily habits.

The amount of compensation awarded for each case depends on the specific circumstances surrounding the injury and what the insurance company or defendant believes is fair. If your lawyer cannot settle outside of court, then a jury or judge will have to make this estimation after the case has been presented to them.

What Is the Average Payout for Personal Injury?

The average payout for personal injury varies greatly depending on the specifics of each case. Some injuries, such as a scar or broken bone, can be fixed within a matter of months, and compensation is relatively low compared to other cases in which the recovery period takes years and involves high medical costs.

Generally, victims get about £1,000 and £2,300 for injuries that heal within 3 months and £2,300 to £4,000 for injuries that heal between 3 months to one year. Some whiplash injuries can take longer to heal (between 1-2 years), and the average compensation for that is £4,080-£7,410.
