Types of serious injury compensation claims
Serious injury compensation claims can come in many different forms, with varying levels of impact on you or your loved one’s life. At Dedicated Accident Solicitors, the most commonly seen and managed by our solicitors include, but are not limited to:
- Amputation and limb damage
- Burns, scars and lacerations
- Fatal accidents
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
Is there a personal injury claim time limit?
When it comes to serious injury cases, the time limit to claim compensation is usually 3 years. This means that court proceedings must normally be issued within 3 years of your accident. However, the time limit can vary depending on the circumstances and the age of the person injured. So, an injured child under the age of 18 years, for instance, will have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim. Alternatively, where the injured person is not able to manage their own affairs under the Mental Capacity Act 2005, the time limit may be waived altogether. Because of the varying time limits involved, it is important that you seek advice as soon as possible after your accident to avoid missing any deadlines.

How much serious injury compensation will I receive?
Because every serious injury case is unique, the amount of compensation received differs greatly from case to case. Generally, the financial compensation will be calculated based on the injuries you have suffered and how these have negatively impacted your life, in both the immediate and long-term. Factors taken into consideration include:
- Your pain, suffering and loss of amenity
- Care and assistance needed
- Rehabilitation services required in order to regain a quality of life
- Loss of earning potential from work
- Any adaptations you will require to your home and vehicle
