With over 20 years of experience, our solicitors are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and are dedicated to providing expert legal guidance and support to our clients. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the stages of the personal injury claims process, empowering you with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions.

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

In the United Kingdom, there is a time limit for making a personal injury claim. Generally, individuals have three years from the date of the incident or the date they became aware of their injury to start a claim. It’s crucial to initiate the process within this timeframe to ensure your case is valid and can be pursued.

However, there are exceptions to this rule. For instance, if the injured party is under the age of 18 at the time of the incident, the three-year period begins on their 18th birthday. Additionally, individuals lacking mental capacity may have an extended timeframe. Contact our personal injury specialists to navigate the specific nuances of your situation and ensure you don’t miss the opportunity to seek the compensation you deserve. Time is of the essence, so don’t hesitate to explore your legal options promptly.

Personal Injury Claims process

The first step in the personal injury claims process is to consult with a personal injury solicitor who specializes in your specific type of claim. At Miya Solicitors, we offer a no-obligation initial consultation, where one of our experienced solicitors will assess the merits of your case and provide you with free legal advice. If your case is strong enough, our solicitor will agree to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis, ensuring that you will not have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.Determining Liability and Gathering Evidence

Once you have appointed a personal injury solicitor, they will begin the process of determining liability for your injuries. This involves identifying the party or parties responsible for your accident or negligence. Our solicitors will conduct a thorough investigation, gathering evidence such as witness statements, accident reports, medical records, and any other relevant documentation. In complex cases, our solicitors may also employ specialists to assess the accident scene or review CCTV footage for additional evidence.

Assessment of Injuries and Medical Records

To support your claim, it is crucial to establish the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life. Our solicitors will work with medical experts to assess your injuries, review your medical records, and obtain a detailed medical report. This report will outline the nature and severity of your injuries, the prognosis for recovery, and any long-term effects on your physical and mental well-being.

How is personal injury compensation calculated?

Once the evidence has been gathered and your injuries have been assessed, our solicitors will calculate the amount of compensation you may be entitled to. This calculation takes into account various factors, including the severity of your injuries, pain and suffering, loss of earnings, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and any future financial losses resulting from your injuries. Our goal is to ensure that you receive fair and just compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial impact of your injuries.

Negotiation and Settlement of personal injury claims

After the calculation of compensation, our solicitors will enter into negotiations with the party responsible for your injuries or their insurance company. Our experienced negotiators will strive to reach a fair settlement that reflects the full extent of your damages. Throughout the negotiation process, our solicitors will keep you informed and provide expert advice on the offers and counteroffers made. Our primary objective is to secure the best possible settlement on your behalf, avoiding the need for lengthy court proceedings.

Do I have to go to court for personal injury claims?

In some cases, settlement negotiations may not result in an agreement. If this occurs, our solicitors will initiate court proceedings on your behalf. Our experienced litigators will present your case before a judge, advocating for your rights and seeking a favorable outcome. It is important to note that the majority of personal injury claims are resolved outside of court, but our solicitors are prepared to take your case to trial if necessary.
