Generally speaking, you have three years from the point of the injury taking place to process a claim. However this may be longer in certain cases. We will advise you on this. If you or a loved one is involved in an accident that results in a brain or spinal injury, it is in your interests to begin the claim process as quickly as possible. This should help you to make a successful claim.

There are a number of different ways to fund your claim and in certain instances you may have an option available to you that you were not even aware of; you may have insurance cover that can help for example. Alternatively we are always willing to discuss the option of a no win, no fee agreement.

The important thing is to get in contact so we can discuss the option that suites you the best.

Your claim will be calculated by taking into account the full range of medical treatments and therapies that are required. These include but are not limited to:

– The level of pain and suffering you have undergone, as well as considering certain tasks and activities that may no longer be possible
– Loss of earnings
– Specialist equipment
– Costs of medical treatment
– Any additional equipment required
– Transportation costs e.g vehicle adaptions
– Modifications to the home
