How Are Personal Injury Claims Calculated?

The personal injury claims process includes legal professionals working out how much compensation you’re eligible to receive. This can vary, depending on a number of factors. Your settlement can fall under two heads of claim. We have broken them down for you below. If you have any questions at any point, get in touch with our claims specialists for more information.

General Damages

One head of claim is known as general damages. It compensates for the impact your injuries have had on your life, including the pain and suffering you have experienced. When calculating the value of this head, the process of a personal injury claim can include several factors. The level of your pain and suffering and the impact on your quality of life are both usually taken into account. Both of these factors can influence how much you can receive. Both physical injuries and mental injuries can be considered as eligible under general damages.

Special Damages

In some cases, your injuries may be directly responsible for certain financial impacts on your life. You could claim for the financial losses caused by your injuries under special damages. For example, your earnings may affected if your injuries mean you cannot work for a certain period of time. Another example could be medical expenses such as prescription medication. Another cost under special damages that could be included in personal injury claims is care costs. For instance, you may require additional care at home due to the severity of your injuries. It’s important you have proof of these expenses in order to be reimbursed. Receipts are a good way of supporting this area of your claim. For those seeking UK settlement examples for pain and suffering, there are several guides related to this matter which are available on our site. This includes our guide to payouts for scarring and our guide to UK personal injury claims payouts for head injuries.

What Types Of Accidents And Injuries Can You Make A Personal Injury Claim For?

A personal injury claim can potentially be started for a wide variety of different accidents and injuries that can occur in different places. Starting personal injury claims in the UK may be possible for potential claimants if they have been injured (or existing injuries have been made worse) because another party which owed them a duty of care breached it due to negligent behaviour. Wherever an accident and injuries caused by negligence occurs, the criteria for starting  potential personal injury claims in the UK and the process of a personal injury claim remains virtually the same. Here at Personal Injury Claims Care, we can advise and potentially support a personal injury claim which you have grounds to make. Our claims specialists can advise on numerous different types of claims, such as the following examples:

Suing The Council For Negligence

When suing the council for negligence, you will need to prove that you were injured due to them breaching their duty of care. Any party in control of a public space, such as your local council, must do all that they reasonably can to keep that space safe to use for its intended purposes. This duty of care is set out in the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957. Councils are in charge of various public spaces such as footpaths and public parks. Some examples of when you could sue the council for negligence include:
  • You break your leg due to tripping over an exposed tree root on a footpath. If you can prove that the council were aware of this issue but did not take the necessary steps to resolve the issue within a reasonable time, you could make a claim.
  • Your child sits on a defective swing at the public park, resulting in the swing collapsing and your child suffering a back injury.
  • You suffer a neck injury due to a pothole in the road that your council had failed to fix within a reasonable time frame.
If you would like more information on personal injury claims in the UK, you can contact our advisors. They could offer you free legal advice regarding your potential claim. They could also give you some pain and suffering settlement examples following a successful claim.

Is There A Time Limit For Making A Personal Injury Claim?

There is a time limit as part of the process for personal injury claims in the UK. Usually, a potential accident claim in the UK has to be started within 3 years, starting from the date on which the accident occurred. These time limits are set out in the Limitation Act 1980 The legal system takes a strict approach to the personal injury claim time limit. In most circumstances, a failure to issue court proceedings within 3 years will see the claim statute barred (also known as time-barred). There are exceptions to the 3-year rule, however:
  • If at the time of the accident you were under the age of 18, the time limit doesn’t begin until your 18th birthday. You’ll therefore have until your 21st birthday to make a claim.
  • If you lose mental capacity as a result of the accident, or if a loved one lacks the mental capacity to act on their own behalf, the time limit is also frozen until they regain that capacity.
In either of these two circumstances, it’s possible to take action sooner with the help of a litigation friend. This is a trusted person who’s appointed to make decisions on your behalf. Any compensation awarded is held in a trust fund for the beneficiary to access at a later date, though applications can be made to access the money sooner.
