Personal Injury
  • Accident or injury in whatever form it takes place is distressing and causes uncertainties; especially if the injury was sustained as a result of someone else (not your fault).

Our personal injury experts at Advantage Solicitors have many years of experience in what can often be a complex area of law.

A dedicated and specialist team will assess your circumstances and assess the claim, giving you free advice and making sure you understand the process and probable outcome of making the claim. Furthermore, not only will we work to obtain your compensation and out of pocket expenses as a result of the accident or injury, but we will also facilitate the recovery of your injuries by arranging appropriate rehabilitation. This can be in the form of Physiotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural, Therapy/Psychotherapy or other forms of Therapy. Our aim is to achieve a successful outcome of being compensated and having any treatment for rehabilitation paid for by the insurers of those at fault in causing the injury/accident.

By law injury victims must commence court proceedings within three years as from the date of the injury/accident; however, we recommend that you commence your claim as soon as possible in order that all crucial information is documented as accurately as possible whilst your recollection of the accident remains fresh.

At Advantage Solicitors, we will assess your injury in terms of who was to blame and why. We will be required to collate evidence from a number of sources which may include witness statements and official reports such as from the police or independent medical professionals in order to prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of the other party who would also be referred to as the defendant in the proceedings.

There are numerous types of personal injury claims, and some may necessitate more specialised legal counsel than others. We have specialists in a variety of fields, including:

Frequently Asked Questions For Personal Injury Claims

What is the average pay out for a personal injury claim?

The amount of compensation you could be eligible will depend on your individual case. There are various factors that affect the outcome of you case and compensation and you will be notified of these at the outset of your claim.

Our team has the knowledge and experience to ensure your claim covers all the support and financial compensation you require. In summary, we can claim for your loss of earnings, care and assistance you required following the accident, medical expenses, travel expenses and future losses (e.g. if your medical report states you will suffer losses and expenses in the future due to being unable to work, medication future treatment and medical aids care and assistance). These are just examples and each case is assessed on its circumstances and evidence provided.
Please feel free to contact our offices and discuss how much compensation you could recover.

How long can a personal injury claim take?
A claim can take from 6 to 12 months if liability is accepted. However, in the event that liability is disputed or injuries persist it could take longer that 12 to 18 months for those complicated claims.
The time limits for bringing a personal injury claim to the courts is 3 years from the date that you were first aware that you suffered from an injury as a result of the accident.
What is compensation for personal injury?

The compensation that you will receive will depend on the type of claim and the extent of your personal injury, which will be determined by a medical report. Have no doubt that we will be committed to getting you the maximum compensation receivable.

Who pays for injury claims?

Your injury compensation claim is filed against the person or organisation responsible (or partially responsible) for causing your injury. In most cases, that person or organisation will have insurance, and we will negotiate with their insurer, who will then pay any compensation you are entitled to.
