Everyone is entitled to go about their everyday life in safety. Unfortunately, the fact is that every year tens of thousands of people in the UK are injured or made ill by the carelessness or negligence of others. When an incident occurs which causes you to be injured or become ill, due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may be able to claim compensation. National Claims handle thousands of personal injury claims, for all types injuries and illnesses.
You can make a claim for personal injury yourself for free if it falls under the remit of the Claims Injury Portal.
However, the Judicial College is the department of the Ministry of Justice that sets the ranges of compensation for all types of accident injury. The Judicial College Guidelines are referred to by solicitors, insurance companies and the courts as a guide only. Your case will be considered on its own merit.
Here are some examples from the 15th edition of the Judicial College guidelines published on 26th November 2019. Your accident specialist will be able to explain this in more detail based on the circumstances of your injury claim.
*Typically, customers pay up to 25% of the amount recovered as a success fee toward the solicitor’s cost on a successful claim. Termination fees may apply if you terminate the agreement with your solicitor outside of the 14 day cancellation period.
Our expert panel of solicitors can typically confirm almost immediately whether your claims application is likely to be successful and also give you an indication of how much you could potentially claim for.
