Under UK law, if you have suffered an injury due to something that was not your fault, you are entitled to financial compensation to offset any costs and loss of earnings that occurred because of that injury, and to provide some financial recompense for the pain and suffering you have gone through and still endure. A personal injury claim is a legal process to provide you with that financial award.

Cute Injury have a team of experienced personal injury lawyers that work on a No Win No Fee basis to secure you the best possible compensation.

What is No Win No Fee?

It is our belief that everyone is entitled to quality legal representation when they have been involved in an incident that was not their fault.

Obviously, top-class personal injury lawyers do not work for free and their costs have to be paid for – in order to facilitate this at no cost to you as the injured party, a conditional fee agreement is put in place.

What is the conditional fee agreement?

The conditional fee agreement is simply another term for ‘no win no fee’. It is an arrangement that states that if your claim is unsuccessful, you will not need to pay a contingency fee for your personal injury lawyer’s services.

In these cases, your lawyer will take out an insurance policy on your behalf to cover any costs during the claim, whether they be medical costs, court fees or other expenses.

Through this process, you will not have to face any costs or hidden fees at all.

What if my claim is successful?

When your compensation is awarded, all the legal fees will be recovered from the losing party, whose liability has been proven in the case.

As part of the conditional fee agreement, the no win no fee solicitors will take a small percentage of the award as a success fee. At Cute Injury, this is never more than 25% of the total award.

By tying our fortunes in with yours, our personal injury lawyers are guaranteed to work at their very best to secure the largest compensation award possible for you.

How much personal injury compensation could I get?

In order to provide a fair level of compensation across the UK, courts work with a defined set of guidelines for determining the final compensation payout for personal injury claims.

This amount differs greatly across a variety of injuries from a few hundred pounds for minor injuries and bruising, through to many hundreds of thousands for life-changing conditions such as paralysis.

See our online Payout Guide to get an accurate estimate for your specific injury and compensation case.

What types of personal injury claim are there?

Road traffic accidents

With the number of cars on the road growing year-by-year, the number of collisions leading to injury remains high despite improvements in car safety features.

Being injured in a car crash or motorbike accident that was not your fault is a common reason for a personal injury compensation award.

There is a wide range of injuries that receive compensation, from whiplash claims to awards to provide support for a lifetime of paralysis and even in the saddest cases, posthumous car accident claims on behalf of the family for accidental death.

Accidents at work, work-related injuries and industrial disease

While at work your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe workplace environment as regulated by the Heath and Safety Executive (HSE).

There are a wide range of types of workplace, but the rules are clear to ensure that employees are protected no matter their environment.

The duty of care extends to:

  • Making sure there are no hazards in the workplace, from an untended spill in an office kitchen, through to correct storage of dangerous chemicals, to ensuring that all buildings are in a good state of repair.
  • Properly marking and cordoning off of any known temporary hazards while they are being resolved.
  • Giving adequate training for all machinery, use of hazardous substances etc.
  • Providing any specialist protective clothing that is needed to perform at work.

If you have suffered an incident at work due to your employer failing to adequately perform their duty of care, then you will be entitled to reasonable compensation.

Examples of cases which Cute Injury have successfully brought to completion include:

Accidents when in a public place

Just as your employer has a duty of care, so too does the owner of any public venue, whether that be a local gym or the car park of a supermarket – and many of the same health and safety regulations apply.

Situations such as poor lighting in a club stairwell that leads to a fall, or potholes in the road that causes a twisted ankle while walking are among those where a compensation claim can be successfully won.

Food poisoning after eating in a restaurant is another area where a personal injury lawyer can help – the restaurant’s duty of care extends to supplying you with suitable food that will not cause harm. If you have suffered from food poisoning, whether in the UK or if you want to make a holiday sickness claim for something that happened abroad, Cute Injury can help.

Medical negligence

It is distressing that the very people to whom we entrust our health and our lives can sometimes be the very ones who cause us harm.

While the vast majority of health professionals are of the very finest quality, sometimes things happen during medical procedures that can cause additional problems.

Making a claim for medical or clinical negligence can be a long and slow process, with competent solicitors on both sides of the situation doing their best to understand the complexities of the situation and reach a fair conclusion. Cute Injury lawyers have a wealth of experience with medical negligence cases, both against the NHS and in private healthcare.

If you have suffered from a situation where a doctor or other healthcare professional has been negligent in their care, then we can help.

What is the personal injury claims process? Are there time limits?

In the UK the law is that any personal injury claim must be started within three years of the diagnosis of the problem.

For most cases, this means three years since the accident, but for some (for example, an asbestos-related condition from long-term exposure in previous years that lies undiagnosed for decades) that time can start as soon as a medical diagnosis is made.
