Need some help?
Am I eligible?
If your physical injury took place in the last three (3) years due to someone else’s negligence, the short answer is yes.
Exceptions to this are for instance industrial disease. Alternatively, if you were a child at the time of the accident, you may have a longer period to claim.
How much could I claim?
Every injury is different. So the amount of personal injury compensation amounts given to a party will differ from case to case.
For example, varying factors are part of the final figure. These can include the extent of your injuries, the earnings you can no longer collect, future losses and more.
Our team of experts will give you an indication of how much you could potentially claim for.
How does the process work?
We realise that when making a claim, you should know what to expect and when. So we make the process as transparent & clear as possible.
Your solicitor gathers all the evidence and notifies the negligent party that you wish to begin claim proceedings. With your solicitor negotiating on your behalf, you'll have the latest information as it changes.
Types of Personal Injury Claims
The Compensation Experts can especially assist with any personal injury claim. Our goal, therefore, is delivering (where possible) personal injury compensation amounts that match your claim.
Some of the most frequent cases our personal injury solicitors encounter include the following.
Road Traffic Accidents
Contact us if you’ve been dealt an injury in a road traffic accident, car accident, coach accident, or motorbike accident.
- This applies if you suffer an injury as a pedestrian.
- Moreover, we can help if you were a passenger.
- Additionally, you can make a claim if you were a driver who was not at fault for the accident.
The UK ranks amongst the top four best countries in Europe regarding road safety. Conversely, car injury statistics suggest that it’s still fairly common. For example, the official numbers show that:
- More than 200,000 people face injury due to an automobile accident.
- Additionally, over 20,000 of those injuries are serious.
RTA accident claims can range from bruising to whiplash, fractures, brain damage, and death.
Accidents at Work
Thankfully for most employees, a day at work is predictable and does not include injury in an avoidable accident. For example, a recent report shows that out of 611,000 injuries that took place at work in a year, 142 were fatal.
In brief, those stats may appear to be a small proportion. However, we see each death as devastation to a family because of an untimely loss. By contrast, we take the matter seriously: to us, that’s a family member who’ll never be able to come home. A family member, furthermore, who may leave their family to face an uncertain financial future on their own.
In addition to our accident at work claims, The Compensation Experts can also assist on other work injury matters. For example, if you, or a member of your family, contract an illness in the workplace. Turn to us regarding workplace illnesses like cancer or mesothelioma, or workplace stress, depression, or anxiety.
All sports carry some degree of risk. However, organisers must also minimise the chance of injury to participants. Turn to us if you suffer an injury due to:
- The reckless behaviour of another player.
- The danger of faulty equipment.
- Event organisers that didn’t take the correct steps to create a safe environment,
As a rule, The Compensation Experts can help you with a compensation claim.
Slips, Trips and Falls
Some clients delay acting on their claim for personal injury compensation amounts for a slip, trip, or fall. Generally, victims don’t want to cause a problem over the matter.
However, there is simply no need to hesitate. We handle a huge number of enquiries from people who have hurt themselves.
- We can help if you fell down poorly lit staircases.
- If you’ve slipped on a wet floor, we can also help with that.
- If you trip over uneven pavements, we can assist with that as well.
- We can also help you if you’re unable to drive yourself to work as a result of your injuries.
- Additionally, we’ll assist you if you require physiotherapy.
Whatever the case, there is no reason for an accident to put you out-of-pocket financially. So talk to The Compensation Experts to find out how we can help you get back on your feet.
Body injuries can range from brain damage to broken toes. Yet if someone else was responsible for the damage, The Compensation Experts are here to help. We handle claims relating to every part of the body: eyes, spinal cords, backs, legs, arms, and internal organs.
As a result, we work on a No Win No Fee basis service.* So the amount of compensation claims for body injuries are both accessible and affordable.

Accordingly, it’s part of our job at The Compensation Experts to minimise your pain, not add to it and make things more difficult.
Firstly, the construction industry is the second most dangerous work environment regarding workplace accidents.** Every year, harm comes to 1,550 per 1,000,000 workers. As a result, the type of injury can vary from one case to the next. That includes strains, sprains, workplace illnesses, fractures and other injuries.
In an ideal world, your employer needs to take all reasonable care to minimise the risk of accidents occurring. Consequently, they need to provide adequate training and ensure workers have the correct safety equipment. Additionally, they must implement transparent procedures to maintain equipment and clean workplace facilities.
But if their neglect of responsibilities leads to an injury, retain our legal services. Contact The Compensation Experts for advice.
Poisoning compensation claims can relate to illness or death from ingesting or inhaling toxic substances. Accordingly, some common poisoning claims include those listed below.
- Cosmetic treatments like substandard or poorly administered fillers.
- Prescription errors where patients receive the wrong type or dose of medication.
- Carbon monoxide poisoning from faulty boilers.
- Food poisoning from eating contaminated food.
- Incorrect storage and handling of dangerous chemicals at work.
The Consumer Rights Act states that all goods sold in the UK after 1 October 2015 must meet certain standards.
- Firstly, the product should be fit for purpose.
- Secondly, the items must be of acceptable quality.
- Lastly, they should meet the specifications of the description.
By the way: items sold up to 30 October 2015 fall within the Sale of Goods Act. So if faulty products result in an injury, get in touch with The Compensation Experts.
Suffering an injury while riding your bicycle incurs a surprising amount of expenses and costs. That’s because some victims are left struggling financially if they are unable to work while they are recovering.
However, there is also the cost of repairing or replacing your damaged bicycle and clothing. Additionally, this injury incurs medical bills such as physiotherapy, and travel expenses if you commute by bike.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) states human error as the main contributor in cyclist collisions. However, poor road conditions and faulty vehicles can also play a part.
If you believe your cycling accident happened because of another party’s mistake, call The Compensation Experts today.

What Can I Receive Compensation For?
When personal injury solicitors discuss compensation, we’re referring to two main types of damages: general and special.
Compensation for general damages is a single payment made in acknowledgement of the impact an accident has had on your life, including pain and physical disability. Personal injury compensation amounts will vary. This depends on the nature and severity of your injuries and their lasting effects
For example, consider the case of a model who was left with facial scarring after a car accident. Alternatively, compare that with a construction worker who suffered lasting mobility issues after an accident on site.
Special damages cover extra costs you have incurred as the result of your accident. In conclusion, these can include the following types of onerous costs.
- Reasonable medical expenses, including obtaining private medical care to avoid long NHS waiting lists.
- Also, you can cover the travel expenses you incur.
- Additionally, you can pay for medication to treat your condition.
- Replacement or repair of clothing and other personal items.
How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
The Judicial Studies Board publishes guidelines for personal injury cases based on what has been paid previously. However, even these guidelines can have a significant variation which is why it pays to hire a personal injury lawyer who specialises in your type of claim.
For example, a victim of a facial injury which leaves little to no physical damage may be awarded £1,200. Alternatively, those with a severe injury causing permanent disfigurement and scarring may be entitled to more than £70,000.
Factors in personal injury compensation amounts
The personal injury compensation amounts you receive will depend on several factors. Namely, the:
- Nature of your injury;
- Strength of your claim, and;
- Quality of the evidence we can submit to support the claim.
Your lawyer may, therefore, obtain independent medical advice. In short, this helps to prove the extent of the impact and any ongoing effects it will have on you and your family.
While it is impossible to predict at the start of your claim the amount you will be paid, your lawyer will discuss what is reasonable to expect and will give you legal advice about whether you should accept an offer that is made out of court.
Can I Make a Personal Injury Claim?
If you were hurt in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence or mistake, you might be entitled to claim compensation for damages even if you were partly to blame. There are instances where you may be able to raise a claim on behalf of another person
- Parents who apply for their children.
- An adult claiming for an elderly parent or relative.
- A carer or guardian claiming for a person who is mentally incapacitated.
Compensation in these cases is held in a trust to be used for the care of the victim.
It is also possible to claim on behalf of the estate of someone who died as the result of an accident, or who has died after contracting a workplace-related illness like mesothelioma. In this instance, the money is paid either to the deceased person’s estate or their dependents.
How Long Do I Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim?
You have three years from the date of your accident to make a personal injury claim, or from the date, your injury was determined to have been caused by your accident, whichever is the most recent. If you were a minor at the time of your accident, then you have until your 21st birthday to either settle a claim or to bring court proceedings against the responsible party if you have not been able to agree out of court.
Admittedly, three years may seem like a long time to sort out a compensation claim. Yet we always advise clients to contact The Compensation Experts at their earliest opportunity, even if they are not yet certain they are going to pursue a claim. Because it becomes harder to obtain quality evidence as time passes. In short, that means applications involving severe/messy injuries can take more than two years.
How Long Does a Personal Injury Claim Take?
As with compensation payments, it is not possible to predict how long a claim will take. Put simply, there are too many variables to give a blanket assessment. Your lawyer will do their best to compile the evidence you need to prove your injury and its impact in the shortest possible time.
If the other party acknowledges liability and agrees to pay reasonable compensation, your claim may take 4-6 months. However, be ready if the other party:
- denies responsibility or;
- refuses to offer a fair amount of money to cover damages.
Ordinarily, our lawyer will recommend you challenge their stance in court. This can mean your personal injury compensation amounts claim could drag on for years.
