What can I make a personal injury claim for?

● Accidents at Work

● Car accidents

●  Motorbike Accidents

●  Asbestos illness

●  Slipping or Tripping accidents

●  Cyclist Accidents


How do I make a claim for injury? 

Call Corries Solicitors on 01904527430  or submit an online enquiry. We will ask you to describe your accident to determine whether or not you have a case.

If we believe that you have a good case we will explain the next steps to you and offer to take your case on a No-Win No-Fee agreement.

Can I make a No Win, No Fee claim?

If you have had an accident that was not your fault then you may be eligible to make a No-Win No-Fee claim.  This means that if we do not win your case, you will not pay us anything.

Any legal costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation that you receive. These costs include:

●  The cost of your no win no fee insurance policy

●  Some of your basic legal costs can’t be recovered from your opponent.

●  A “success fee”  for taking the risk with your claim.

We will explain all this to you at the outset of your claim.


How much personal injury compensation will I receive?

This will depend upon your particular case. The amount will depend on factors such as:

•  The severity of  your injuries

•  Financial losses, including for example loss of earnings or travel expenses.

• Pain and suffering

• Medical and rehabilitation treatment costs.

Valuing a claim involves the solicitor using his or her experience to ensure the client receives the maximum compensation.


How are personal injury claims calculated?

The amount of compensation that you will receive is dependent upon a number of factors including:

●  The severity of your injuries

●  How long your recovery will take

●  How long you will be unable to work for

●  Your ongoing and future care needs and medical expenses

●  Financial losses, loss of earnings

●  The psychological impact of your injuries

There are many different factors and payouts for personal injury can be from a few thousand pounds up to several million in the most serious of cases.


What is the personal injury claims time limit?

In most cases, you need to start your claim within three years from the date of the accident.

Children do not face the time limit of three years as a claim can be made by an adult on their behalf at any time before they turn 18.


How much will it cost to make an injury claim?

We will handle your claim on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis. If your claim is successful we will deduct 25% from your settlement figure, known as a success fee. There may be other costs such as insurance, we can discuss this with you if it is required.


How long will my personal injury claim take?

The individual circumstances of each claim will influence how long the claim takes.  Factors that can affect the length of your claim include:

●  The seriousness of the injury.

●  Whether liability is accepted by the defendant.

●  The time it takes you to recover.

What does a personal injury solicitor do?

A personal injury solicitor will gather evidence against the defendant. They will also arrange for you to attend an independent medical examination and negotiate with third-party insurers.
