What does a personal injury lawyer do?

A personal injury solicitor is your guide and advocate in navigating the ins and outs of the personal injury legal system.

They liaise with at-fault parties, insurance companies, the police, medical professionals, judges and other key players, to help injured people get compensation for injuries suffered in accidents that were not their fault.

They fight for your rights so you don’t have to. This means you can dedicate your time and energy to recovering from your injuries.

Why do I need a specialist personal injury solicitor?

The legal field is vast with many specialities. It makes sense that you will have a better outcome with a specialist personal injury lawyer who has years of experience and a successful track record handling cases similar to yours.

A specialist personal injury solicitor has in-depth knowledge of personal injury laws and they are well-versed in dealing with insurance companies and their tactics.

They know how to evaluate the worth of your claim, taking into account all your damages, including lost wages, pain and suffering and possible future expenses. They ensure you get a fair settlement. If this cannot be achieved through negotiation, they are prepared to take your case to trial.

Having confidence that your solicitor is working to secure your future can provide peace of mind, knowing that your case is being handled by a competent and caring professional.

How do I choose the best personal injury law firm for me?

First, look out for a personal injury law firm that is regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). This ensures they meet high standards of professionalism and ethical conduct.

Then, dig deeper to understand what sets the best firms apart.

Our Lawyers Explain Everything in Plain Language

At our firm, communication is key. We understand that legal jargon can be confusing, so we take the time to explain everything in plain language. You will always know what is happening with your case and what your options are. Your road to recovery starts with a free initial consultation with our London solicitors. We will give you a full, fair assessment of your personal injury case—and if we don’t think it is a strong one, we will tell you. There is never any obligation to proceed with us and all initial advice is free.

Initial consultation – questions to ask and how to prepare

The initial consultation is a friendly, confidential discussion about your injury and how it happened. The personal injury solicitor will assess your case, let you know whether you can make a claim, and talk you through the next steps. They will also explain how you can finance your claim and the costs involved.

You need to trust your accident lawyer and feel confident in their ability to handle your case. Here’s how to prepare and some question you can ask to make the most of your initial consultation:

How to prepare

  • Write down a timeline of events leading up to and following your injury.
  • Gather any documents related to your injury and the incident, such as medical reports, police reports, receipts and photographs.
  • Be prepared to discuss the impact the injury has had on your life, work and well-being.
  • Have your list of questions ready.

Questions to ask

  • What experience do you have with cases similar to mine?
  • Who will be handling my case, and how can I contact them?
  • Are you prepared to visit me at home if necessary?
  • What kind of support and assistance will you provide throughout the process?
  • How long do you think my case will take, and what factors could affect the timeline?
  • On average, what settlements do you achieve in cases similar to mine?
  • Can I see examples of successful cases similar to mine that your firm has handled?
  • What are the options for funding my case?

How much does hiring a personal injury solicitor cost?

The majority of personal injury cases are handled on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you won’t have to pay any upfront legal fees to start your claim. Instead, your solicitor’s fees will be deducted from the compensation awarded if the case is successful.

It’s important that you understand the terms and conditions of the no win, no fee agreement before signing. The percentage should be explicitly stated in your agreement, and you should check whether there are other costs and deductions, such as for any shortfall in the recovery of their basic charges or for After The Event insurance.

Your personal injury solicitor should explain these potential costs to you upfront, offering you a clear picture of the financial aspect of your claim.

Questions about personal injury claims

 

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a claim for compensation when you are injured in an accident that was not your fault. The injury can be physical or psychological. It can also be direct – an injury to yourself – or indirect, where you suffer a bereavement caused by someone’s negligence.

There are many different scenarios in which a personal injury claim can arise. Our personal injury expertise includes accidents at worktrips and slipsamputation claimscar and road traffic accidentssports accidentsholiday accidents. and more.

Listed below are some of the more common claims that our team of personal injury solicitors handles:

  • Road traffic accidents: If you’ve been involved in a road accident that was someone else’s fault, you may be able to claim for personal injuries, vehicle damage and other expenses. It doesn’t matter if you were the driver, a passengerpedestrian or another road user. Read more about road traffic accidents.
  • Cycling accidents. Cyclists are especially vulnerable on the roads and the lack of protection means that accidents can result in serious harm like broken bones, spinal injuries or head injury. Our cycling accident solicitors have a long history of achieving successful results for London’s cyclists. Read more about cycling accident claims.
  • Accidents in public places: We often take it for granted that the pavements and walkways we use every day will be safe. Unfortunately, potholes, slippery surfaces and other hazards can cause slips and trips leading to injury. If the owner did not maintain the area and you are injured, you may be able to make a claim. Find out more about making a claim for injury compensation after a slip, trip or fall.
  • Workplace accidents: Your employer is legally required to take reasonable steps to prevent accidents or injury in the workplace. If they fail to provide a safe working environment and you are injured as a result, you may be able to make a claim. Find out more about work accident claims.
  • Fatal or life-changing injuries. Sometimes, we are contacted by the family member of someone who has suffered a fatal accident or catastrophic injuries. In such cases, we work with sensitivity and compassion so that our clients rebuild their lives after suffering a devastating loss. Compensation can help you make the necessary home adaptations and provide for life-long care and equipment. Find out more about making a serious injury claim orfatal accident claim.

How do you prove a personal injury claim?

To win a personal injury claim, your solicitor has to prove that:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care
  • They did (or did not do) something to breach the duty of care
  • You suffered a personal injury as a result.

For example, the local authorities have a duty of care to keep a public building in a reasonable state of repair. If they failed to maintain a staircase, causing you to fall and break your leg, then the local authority would be liable for your injuries.

While this may sound straightforward, liability can sometimes be quite challenging to prove. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced personal injury solicitor on your side who can gather evidence, prepare your case and negotiate with the other party’s legal team.

How much compensation will I get for my personal injury claim?

There is no quick or easy answer to this question. When it comes to personal injury compensation levels, how much you are entitled to depends on your individual circumstances. To calculate the right amount, your lawyer will need to know your injury, its severity and its effect on your life. They will assess every aspect of your experience to make sure you are fully compensated.

Personal Injury Payouts

It’s important to note that there are two types of personal injury compensation (damages):

General damages

General damages compensate you for the pain and suffering of your injuries and the impact they’ve had on your life.

Special damages

Special damages reimburse you for any financial losses you incurred as a direct result of your accident. Special damages can often make up the largest part of your compensation, and cover things such as:

  • Time off work and any lost earnings
  • Any loss to your future income
  • Any impacts on your ability to work
  • Personal help or care you’ve had, even if it was given voluntarily by family and friends
  • Any modifications you’ve had (or may need) to your car or home
  • Any medical care, treatment, travel or accommodation expenses
  • Any rehabilitation programmes prescribed to you by a medical professional
  • The daily extra expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident

After your personal injury solicitor accepts the case, obtains all appropriate medical evidence and then begins negotiating with the other side (usually their insurance company), you’ll start to get an idea of how much personal injury compensation you may receive if your claim is successful.

Rest assured, we have 50 years of knowhow achieving positive outcomes for our clients.

How long do I have to make a personal injury claim?

You usually have three years from the date of an accident or injury to bring a personal injury claim, this is known as the limitation period – but we’d always advise getting in touch as soon as possible.

There are some exceptions that can affect the time limit:

  • In cases where injuries develop gradually and you were not aware of the injury when it started, the three year period might start from the date that you became aware of it. This data is known as the ‘date of knowledge’.
  • If the injured person in under 18 the three year limitation period starts when they are 18, so they have until they are 21 to make a claim.
  • If the injured person lacks mental capacity, there are no time limits.
  • If the claim is for a fatal accident, the three year period starts from the date of death or the date the death was linked to the injury, whichever is later.

    Personal Injury FAQs

    What types of personal injury can I claim compensation for?

    Our personal injury compensation lawyers advise on a broad range of injury and accident claims. No matter where you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, we can help. We regularly pursue claims for the following:

    What are the different ways of resolving my claim?

    We understand that you don’t want to go to court if it can be avoided. Where possible, we’ll always try to settle your case through negotiation with the other side’s solicitor and their insurers. This can be done gradually through correspondence, at a formal meeting, or using techniques such as mediation.

    Alternatively, we might look at something called ‘early neutral evaluation. This is where a judge, retired judge or QC hears each side’s submissions and then states their view of what the likely outcome at trial will be. Arbitration is another form of dispute resolution, where both parties agree to be bound by the decision of an independent arbitrator.

    Before any decisions are made as to how your case will be resolved, we’ll talk you through the options available, to get the best result.

    Will my personal injury case go to court?

    Although the majority of cases settle out of court, sometimes this isn’t possible. If the other side refuses to accept responsibility or if criminal proceedings have to be brought, we might have to start court proceedings.

    Don’t worry, your personal injury lawyers will be by your side handling this for you at every step of the way. We’ll explain each step and what will happen so as to make things as simple and straightforward as possible.

    What is a no win no fee personal injury claim?

    In the vast majority of cases, you will be able to pursue your personal injury claim through what’s known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or ‘No Win No Fee’. This means you will not be required to pay legal fees if you do not win your injury claim.

    How long does a personal injury claim take?

    Because each claim is different it’s impossible to say exactly how long your claim will take. It will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether or not your opponent admits blame.

    A relatively simple claim – like minor whiplash when the other party admits responsibility – could be settled in a few months. A claim relating to more serious injuries or where the other party doesn’t admit responsibility will take longer as we’ll have to seek medical evidence. We may have to wait to understand the full impact of your injuries because compensation may depend on how long it takes you to heal.

    Other factors that could prolong your personal injury claim might include whether it has to go to court when a criminal offence has been committed and police charges also have to be brought and if you’ve been injured in a hit and run accident when the police and insurance companies will be trying to locate the driver.

    Who actually pays the personal injury compensation?

    People often worry that a personal injury claim will leave someone out of pocket, especially if it’s their employer or someone they know. In reality, it’s the other side’s insurance company that handles personal injury claims payouts. All employers, drivers and property owners are legally obliged to have insurance to cover any injury claims made against them.

    When will I get my personal injury compensation payments?

    We understand that you might need your personal injury compensation to support yourself during treatment and recovery. Once the other side has accepted full or partial responsibility for your accident or injury, you can apply to get what are known as ‘interim compensation payments’. These are early, partial, payments that are paid before the full and final payment of your compensation. They can go towards living costs, because you’re unable to work, or towards private treatment or rehabilitation. They will be deducted from the final compensation payment when that is eventually paid.

    Will I need a medical examination to make a personal injury claim?

    We want to get the very best results for you following your accident or injury. To do this, we need to know not only how serious the injury is but how long it’s likely to take to get better and whether there are going to be any lasting effects. For this reason, we are likely to need to see your medical records and for you to undergo a medical examination.

    Don’t worry, this will usually only take 20 minutes and be conducted by a medical expert. We’ll discuss all of this in more detail when we speak, to ensure you’re happy and understand each step of the process.

    Do I need a personal injury solicitor near me?

    While we are based in London, we support clients from all over the UK. Take a look at our client stories to get a better feel for the types of claims that we handle. If you aren’t sure whether we can help then, please, just give us a call. The phone call is free, and there’s no pressure to hire us. We want you to get better, and we promise you’ll walk away with a better understanding of your rights.

    What's the difference between a personal injury law firm and a claims management company?

    Recent reforms in the legal sector mean that most claims management firms no longer offer personal injury services. These firms once dominated the market. They did a great job at marketing and collecting personal injury leads, but they were not legal experts. They simply passed on your case to a personal injury solicitor and took their cut—often putting vulnerable injury claimants through a cycle of telephone salespeople and charging unnecessary up-front fees.

    Today, clients rightfully expect higher standards of expertise and transparency from their legal representation. Working with a specialist personal injury solicitor should be a high-quality, reassuring experience that significantly improves the outcome of your case.
