If you have been injured as a result of an accident at work, using a defective product, a tripping or slipping accident, a road traffic accident or have a claim as a result of negligent medical or dental treatment, then you could be entitled to compensation if someone else was responsible for your injury. A compensation claim has to be made within three years of the date of the accident, however for children that period doesn’t start to run until the child is eighteen and the three year period doesn’t start until you know the identity of the party responsible for the injury or have sufficient information to make a claim. A person who lacks mental capacity can bring a claim outside the three year period through an adult representative. The time for making a claim for injuries sustained whilst on board an aircraft or aboard a ship is only two years. General damages awards for injuries sustained are tax free but in many higher value claims awards for loss of earnings, loss of pension, care costs, medical treatment costs, disability aids and the cost of adapting accommodation for disabled use can be greater than the part of the award relating only to the injuries sustained. We aim to maximise your compensation award by including every element of your claim that is realistically recoverable.
