If you or a family member has suffered a personal injury and it wasn’t your fault then you could make a personal injury claim to compensate for your pain and suffering, as well as loss of income. Personal injury claims are extremely common in the UK, with many accidents occurring every day, both in the workplace and elsewhere. For this reason, it's very useful to be aware of your rights.

How much compensation can I claim for personal injury?

When you have suffered a personal injury and want to make a compensation claim then it's natural that you'll want to know how much money you can expect to receive. The amount of compensation you receive for a personal injury will depend on certain key factors. These include:
  • Type of injury
  • The severity of your injury
  • The loss of earnings as a result of your injuries, both now and in the future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Additional costs of living
  • Necessary additions to your homes such as having a stair lift installed; and
  • Medical costs including treatment and medication

How are compensation payouts calculated?

Personal injury claim payouts are split into two areas: General damages and Special damages.

The General damages compensate the Claimant for the pain and suffering they have endured as a result of the injury and therefore depend on the severity of the injury and the level of negligence that led to it.

Special damages reimburse the Claimant for any costs and expenses they incurred as a result of the accident e.g. loss of earnings, travel costs, medical treatment and rehabilitation costs etc... Payout amounts are arrived at by taking into account the nature and severity of the injury and then refer to the Judicial College Guidelines which give an upper or lower limit to the amount the Claimant is entitled to.

What types of personal injury can I claim for?

A personal injury claim can be anything where you feel a third party is liable for an injury that you have sustained. Some common types of personal injury claims include:
  • Workplace accidents and injuries
  • Accidents whilst on holiday
  • Injuries sustained in a car crash
  • Medical negligence claims; and
  • Slip, trip or falling over in public premises
