What is a Serious Injury Claim?

Serious injuries can manifest in many different ways. If the injured suffers significant long-term effects from an accident, they will have suffered a serious injury, regardless of the type of accident or injury.

A Serious Injury Claim for compensation is multi-faceted, long term consequences must be factored into financial compensation settlements to ensure the long term well-being of the injured person and their needs are fully considered.

Some of the most common injuries we see in these cases are:

The list above is certainly not exhaustive, as every serious injury case is unique, so if you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, then it is likely you are entitled to pursue a claim for financial compensation. The only way to be sure is call us today and have a free consultation with one of our lawyers.

Serious injuries tend to leave long-lasting effects on the injured person and potentially their families and loved ones. Round the clock care and even adaptations to the home may be required in provision for ensuring a quality of life after a serious injury is made as feasible as possible.

Serious injuries tend to be the result of either severe traumatic injury caused by a serious accident or instances of medical negligence.

Your Serious Injury Claims Questions Answered

How much compensation can I expect for a serious injury claim?

Every Serious Injury Claim is unique. Unique because of the differences that exist between the circumstances, causes and liability surrounding the accident or the act of negligence itself and also unique because every individual is also unique.

For many reasons it is difficult to forecast the exact amount of compensation that may eventually be paid out, but each serious injury claim will be valued based on certain conditions:

  • Loss of earnings suffered by the victim including future projected losses. Any lost earnings suffered by family members who provided / continue to provide care would also be for consideration.
  • Medical costs
  • Costs surrounding any material losses occurring during the accident (ie Motorcycle)
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy costs
  • Costs of Psychological care / support
  • Costs of home or vehicle adaptations needed to enhance independent living
  • Equipment costs: aids to enhance independent living such as wheelchairs
  • General damages considerate of pain and suffering endured by the victim and their family
Who can make a serious injury claim for compensation?

Unfortunately, it is the case, that on many occasions where a person has sustained the most serious of injuries, it is not possible for that person themselves to pursue a serious injury claim. Rightly this does not prohibit family member from seeking the justice deserved.

If a child has experienced a catastrophic injury, their parents or a legal guardian is entitled to make the claim for compensation. In the case of children, a claim can still be submitted for up to 3 years beyond the child turning 18 years old.

For an adult experiencing a serious injury, then a claim must be brought within 3 years of the incident, although there are exceptional circumstances that surround this time limit based on the mental capacity of the injured person. In the case of an adult a spouse, family member of dependent can make a serious injury claim on behalf of the injured person.

As mentioned, there are exceptions and special circumstances that courts may need to consider surrounding time limits so if you are unsure about anything regarding the potential for you to make a claim for compensation for yourself or for a family member, we will quickly be able to put your mind at ease.

Testimonials

What our clients say.

Contacted Lanyon Bowdler six months after an injury at work. They offered me several of their services, including no win no fee which I ended up choosing. The solicitor was extremely helpful, was always keeping me updated when there was news and answered promptly when asked for any updates or when I asked any questions. I was very happy with the final settlement and the advice I received proved to be the best for my case. I felt like the extra bit of care was extended to give me a good idea of the options I had to choose from which really helped to inform any decision.
