I have sustained an injury. Do I have a claim for compensation?
How is it decided whether I get compensation for my injuries?
Once we have established ‘fault’ (known as liability), we will then advise you how to prove the extent of your injuries and loss.
This is commonly referred to as the quantum (amount) of your claim.
What are my entitlements for compensation?
- The pain and suffering you have endured.
- Any residual disability or scarring you may have from your injuries.
- Time off work or loss of work opportunities.
- The cost of medical treatment you have received and will need to continue to receive.
- The market value of the help that your spouse, parents or children have given you due to you injuries.
- The effect of your injuries on your ability to earn an income.
Some categories have the potential to attract large sums of compensation while for others, including pain and suffering, the law has effectively capped the amount of compensation that can be paid.
The law in this area is complicated and it is therefore very important that you engage a solicitor to maximise your claim.
