Serious Injury Claims
Personal injury claims can arise from road accidents for drivers and passengers, slip and fall incidents, workplace accidents, and more.
Personal injury claims aim to recover financial compensation to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and other losses caused by an accident or incident.
A personal injury claim is a legal process that allows individuals who have suffered injuries or damages due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party to seek compensation for their losses. Personal injury claims can arise from a wide range of situations, such as road accidents for drivers and passengers, slip and fall incidents, workplace accidents, and more.
The duration of a personal injury claim can vary widely depending on several factors. There isn’t a fixed timeline, as each case is unique and influenced by various variables, but these factors may impact the length of time a personal injury claim takes:
In general, complex, serious personal injury claims will usually be resolved within a couple of years.
It’s important to note that while a quicker resolution might be desirable, the primary focus should be on ensuring that the injured party receives fair compensation for their losses. It takes time to cover all of the evidence and to prepare and present the claim.
There are many types of compensation that may apply in personal injury claims. These may include:
It’s important to note that personal injury lawyers in England and Wales are governed by the same jurisdiction. Northern Ireland and Scotland have different jurisdictions.
In the UK, the limitation period for most personal injury claims is three years from the date of the incident that caused the injury. This is often referred to as the ‘limitation period’. However, there are some exceptions to this. It is different for minors under the age of 18 and people who lack mental capacity. It’s best to speak with a solicitor for advice specific to your situation.
