Injury to senses claims
Injuries to the sense can include a loss of smell and / or taste, impaired vision (even blindness) as well as hearing loss and tinnitus. How each person is affected by an injury to the sense is unique and needs careful consideration.
Admiral Law have assisted countless clients with injuries and impairments to the sense, helping them to secure the best possible treatment. Where a complete recovery is not possible, treatment, aids and equipment can be secured to minimise the impact of this injury. We will also work with rehabilitation providers who can consider the need to provide more bespoke adaptations to your home or liaise with an employer to secure a return to work.
Unfortunately, in circumstances where the injury causes a lasting impairment resulting in an inability to return to a previous occupation, we work closely with rehabilitation providers to secure re-training, to consider alternative employment and can secure compensation to cover any lost income.

How will my claim be funded?
You may have legal expenses insurance attached to your car or home insurance policy. We can make enquiries to see if any such legal expense insurance exists and can be used to fund your claim. If you do not have existing legal expenses insurance we can enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a conditional fee agreement, you may be charged a fee for our services.
How long will my claim take?
We aim to conclude your claim as soon as is possible. The length of time this takes depends very much on the severity of the injury, the duration of your recovery and importantly the willingness of the defendant to accept fault.
It is important that we ensure that you are recovered completely or have a final prognosis for your future in order to calculate any resulting losses before attempting to settle your claim.
How much compensation will I receive?
The consequences of the injuries or illnesses will vary between individuals. The amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you and depend upon a number of factors such as the severity of the injury, extent of any continuing symptoms and the level of impact on ability to work.
Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims to ensure you get the compensation you deserve
