Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to claim?

Generally you have 3 years from the date of your accident in which to commence your claim for compensation through the courts. This is known as the limitation period.

There are some exceptions to this rule. Some of these exceptions are:-

  • If you are under the age of 18 when your accident occurs then you have until your 21st birthday regardless of when you were injured.
  • In the cases of a disease or hearing loss then you have to bring your claim within 3 years of when you knew that your condition someone else’s fault or contracted whilst at work.
What will it cost me?

You will not be asked to pay anything up front. If you win your claim the majority of your legal costs are paid by the Defendant. Any of the legal costs not paid by the Defendant will be deducted from any compensation awarded to you. You will not pay anything until your claim has settled and anything you do pay will come out of the compensation you receive.

Will I have to pay costs if I lose my case?

No! We will ensure that you have sufficient insurance cover in place so that you are covered in the unlikely event that your case loses.

How much compensation will I receive?

Generally the amount of compensation directly relates to the seriousness of your injury and the financial losses you have suffered. In addition to a claim for pain and suffering you can claim for items such as loss of earnings, medical costs, travel expenses, damage to property or personal care.

If your claim is successful then the majority of your legal costs will be paid by the Defendant. Any of the legal costs not paid by the Defendant will be deducted from the compensation awarded to you up to a maximum of 25%.

How long will it take?

There is no simple answer to this question. However we aim to get simple straightforward cases resolved within a matter of months and more complicated cases completed within two years. Factors that affect this are the other side’s approach to dealing with your case and the seriousness of your injuries.
