Compensation for personal injury


The aim of compensation is to compensate you for your loss - attempting to place you in the position you were in before the accident - rather than to impose a punitive payment on the professional. Compensation will vary depending on the type of injury and your personal circumstances.

If you have sustained a personal injury and you think that someone else is to blame for it, you may be able to claim for compensation.

Calculating compensation can be very complex and not everything can be compensated. We have set out some of the basic principles about compensation, such as what can be compensated and how compensation is calculated.

If you would like to obtain legal advice on matters relating to compensation, we can help to put you in touch with a local specialist solicitor. Our service is free. Call our experienced case handlers on 0800 1777 162.
