FAQs for Our Personal Injury Solicitors

How do personal injury claims work?

Personal injury claims can be made when an individual (referred to as the claimant should they choose to make a claim), suffers an injury due to someone else's negligence or intentional harm. The claim process involves several key steps:

  1. Consultation with a solicitor: the claimant consults a personal injury solicitor to assess the validity of the claim and discuss potential compensation.
  2. Gathering evidence: the solicitor collects evidence such as medical records, witness statements, and accident reports to support the claim.
  3. Filing the claim: the solicitor files a claim against the party responsible for the injury, known as the defendant.
  4. Negotiation: most personal injury claims are settled out of court through negotiations between the solicitor and the defendant’s insurance company.
  5. Court proceedings: If a settlement cannot be reached, the case may go to court where a judge or jury determines the outcome and the compensation. It is important to note that court proceedings rarely become necessary for personal injuries.

Who pays costs in personal injury claims?

The losing party generally pays most of the winner's costs and legal fees for a personal injury claim. This is often covered by the defendant's insurance. Claimants may also have legal expenses insurance as part of their household or car insurance policy, or they may work with solicitors who operate on a no win, no fee basis, such as those at Tyler Hoffman. Under such an agreement, our solicitors only charge fees if your claim is successful, and these fees are typically a percentage of the awarded compensation.

What is the time limit for personal injury claims?

In the UK, the time limit for making a personal injury claim is generally three years from the date of the accident or the date when the claimant first became aware of the injury that was linked to the incident (known as the 'date of knowledge'). However, there are some exceptions:

  • Claims involving children: the three-year limit begins on the child’s 18th birthday. Parents can make a claim on the child’s behalf at any time before this.
  • Mental capacity: if the injured party lacks mental capacity, there may be no time limit until their capacity is restored.

How long do personal injury claims take?

The duration of a personal injury claim depends on various factors including the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and whether the defendant accepts liability. Make sure to consult a solicitor as soon as possible to get an accurate estimate based on the specifics of your case. Each personal injury claim is unique, and the timeline of yours will vary significantly.
