What is a serious injury?

Serious injuries, also referred to as catastrophic injuries, have a long-term and significant impact on an injuries person’s life. It is either difficult or impossible to fully recover from these types of injuries.

A serious accident can happen anytime, anywhere. In many cases you may be entitled to bring a claim if you were seriously injured on the road, at work, or even in the hospital. Any claim must be made within 3 years of the date of the accident. If you are unclear whether your claim falls within this period please contact one of our solicitors.  

How long will my serious injury claim take?

It can be difficult to determine how long your claim might take. This is because the time necessary to conclude your claim is determined by the complexity of the injury itself. However, we would be able to advise you regarding this once you have spoken with one of our expert solicitors.

What is my serious injury claim worth?

Each injury is unique and needs to be carefully assessed. The serious injury compensation amount awarded depends on several factors including the severity of the injury as well as financial loss.
