Serious injury claims
Serious Injuries include any injury i.e. orthopaedic, neurological, psychological or even those difficult to diagnose, from which an incomplete recovery is made. These will result in on-going symptoms and restrictions, in turn causing a financial loss in the form of a loss of earnings, treatment fees or care & assistance from others.
Serious Injuries can impact an individual in a way that is unique to them. What affects one person may not affect another and at Admiral Law we are very much aware of the need to treat each client as an individual and never assume ‘we have seen this before’.
Families can be equally affected by a serious injury to a spouse, parent, child or dependant. Any support package that we are able to implement will take into account your personal circumstances and the needs of your family so that the impact of what has been a devastating event is lessened wherever possible.

How to make a claim
If you have been involved in an accident that is not your fault and have suffered injuries as a result please contact us as soon as possible. Claims for personal injury arising out of accidents which take place in England and Wales are subject to a three year limitation period. We can arrange a convenient time for one of our skilled and experienced team members to contact you. We aim to make your claim for personal injury as straightforward and stress free as possible. We will always explain the steps involved in pursuing a claim for compensation.

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 (a no win no fee agreement) and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a no win no fee agreement, you may be charged a success fee.
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 injuries 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.
