The impact of serious injuries

If you’ve suffered from an accident through no fault of your own, you may not be able to return to work and you may require regular long-term medical treatment or care at home.

The compensation amounts that you receive from a personal injury claim will not make up for what you and your family have been through. You may have experienced life-changing injuries with a financial impact now as well as future loss of earnings. You may require lengthy or ongoing treatment and ongoing hospital visits, with many out-of-pocket expenses. 

Your mental health may have suffered due to your injury, and you may even experience post-traumatic stress disorder. All of these can occur as a result of serious injuries, and they are all factors in any serious injury compensation claims.

Personal injury lawyers at PR Scully are experienced and trusted advocates for anyone who’s suffered serious injuries, whether that’s you or a family member.

If you’ve suffered a serious injury, we’ll use our expertise and determination to secure the best possible compensation for you as our client. Contact our law firm for personal injury specialist legal advice to assess your injury claim and decide whether to proceed. We have 20 years’ experience dealing with injury claims and securing justice and compensation for clients with serious injury claims.

What is considered a serious injury in law?

Serious injuries are catastrophic injuries that have a profound and often long-lasting impact on a person and their family.

Examples include spinal cord injuries; brain injury or brain damage as a result of injury; amputations; serious burns; and serious medical injuries caused by clinical negligence and fatal accidents. 

Head injuries, eye injury and multiple fractures can also be catastrophic injuries with life-changing impacts. If you’ve suffered a serious injury through negligence, in a road traffic accident or your line of work, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

Contact us to find out how to claim compensation for catastrophic injury via a personal injury claim. We are specialist solicitors who can advise you on how much compensation you could receive, and what medical care and financial support you may receive if your claim is successful.

We offer a free initial consultation and ‘no win no fee’ arrangements. Legal fees and legal expenses need not be a barrier to your seeking injury compensation, for yourself or a family member. Get in touch with us today to discuss your compensation claim:

‘No win no fee’ serious injury claims

Because we understand that our clients may not be able to pay all the legal fees for serious injury compensation claims up front, we give clients the option of conditional fee agreements or working on a ‘no win no fee’ agreement. This reduces the client’s financial risk when bringing a serious injury compensation claim that may go to court.

No win no fee agreements for serious injury claims means that we will do all the necessary work on your injury claim and will only be paid if the case is successful. Sometimes, that means that we will do a lot of work towards a personal injury claim, but do not end up being paid with the no win no fee approach.

If we do win the injury claim but cannot recover all our fees, we ask clients to pay for some of the legal costs from their personal injury compensation. Some firms call this a success fee.

If you want to claim compensation for serious injuries, contact us via our website or ring us on 0161 768 3174.

How much compensation could I get for a serious injury claim?

The amount of compensation that you could be awarded for your serious injury claim will vary depending on your serious injuries, your personal circumstances, and the level of fault or negligence that the injury resulted from. Life-changing injury claim compensation also factors in ongoing financial assistance and medical treatment for you or a family member.

As serious injury solicitors, PR Scully are expertly placed to guide you on how much compensation you could be entitled to if you have suffered a serious injury through no fault of your own. 

We can also advise on the time limit for making a personal injury claim. Compensation amounts will vary depending on individual circumstances, but we have the expertise to guide you on all aspects of making a personal injury claim if you have suffered a serious injury.

Serious Injury Compensation Claims: FAQs

What type of medical help and care can I get straight away?

If liability is accepted by the fault insurer for your serious injuries, we will arrange for an Immediate Needs Assessment to be carried out by a rehabilitation company. 

The rehabilitation company will prepare a report for your serious injury claim, which will detail the medical help that you need and any other assistance that you might require as a result of your personal injury.

What about my medical needs and care in the longer term?

Once we know what your long-term position is likely to be as a result of your personal injury, we will make sure that the cost of future medical treatment is covered.  You are under no obligation to be treated through the NHS.  If the treatment required can be more conveniently dealt with through private healthcare, you are perfectly entitled to choose private healthcare as your preferred option. 

If your injuries are so serious that you need care and help at home, we will arrange for a long-term care package to be prepared as part of your personal injury compensation.  We will make sure that you have enough funds available so that the necessary care is provided for the remainder of your life.

What if I cannot work after the accident and I have no income?

We will ask the insurers to make payments (now known as “interim payments”) as your case progresses so that you are not left out of pocket as a result of your serious injury. 

We know that you will have bills to pay and that you need to have money coming in.  The insurers will want to have proof of the amount that you earn, so we will ask you for wage slips or, if you don’t have them, we will ask your employer to confirm details of the amount that you earn. 

If you are self-employed, we will ask you to let us have copies of your Accounts and Tax Returns as proof of how much you earn.

If it looks as though you are not going to be able to work in the future, when your serious injury case is concluded, we will ask the insurers to compensate you for future lost earnings as part of your injury compensation. 

For example, if you are aged 40 at the time of the accident, we will ask the insurers to compensate you for the amount that you would have earned until retirement age.

What if I can work but not do the same job as I did before the accident?

We will calculate the difference between the amount you would have earned in your previous job and the amount you are likely to earn in your new job.  We will work out how much you are likely to lose for the remainder of your working life and will ask the insurers to pay this amount as part of your serious injury compensation.
