What Is A Personal Injury Claim?

Let’s start by taking a look at the definition of a personal injury claim.

In simple terms, it’s a form of legal action you can take if you’ve suffered an injury or illness because of someone else. For example, a driver crashes into the back of your car while you’re waiting at traffic lights.

In many cases, a personal injury claim can be made with the help of a No Win No Fee agreement. We explain this in greater depth below, but in short, it means you don’t pay anything upfront and pay nothing if the case doesn’t succeed. This way you can get quality legal representation without the need to pay any fees unless the case is a success.

Compensation is often paid out by the insurance company of the defendant too, especially in cases involving workplace accidents and car accidents.

Am I Eligible To Make A Personal Injury Claim?

Being able to make a successful personal injury claim revolves around negligence. Certain third parties have a duty of care to you and, if you injure yourself due to them breaching this duty of care, you may be able to claim due to negligence. There are three requirements to prove negligence. They are:

  • That the third party has a duty of care to you.
  • That you have evidence showing that the third party breached their duty of care.
  • And it’s this breach that led to your injury.

What Is The Personal Injury Claims Time Limit?

There are several other factors to consider if you’re looking to make a No Win No Fee personal injury claim.

  • There is a personal injury claims time limit. You generally need to make a claim either three years from the date of the incident or three years from the date you became aware of negligence at least contributing to the injury. This is outlined in the Limitation Act 1980.
  • Someone under the age of eighteen or someone who does not have the capacity to make a claim can still potentially have one made on their behalf. In these instances, someone would need to be named their litigation friend so they can claim on the injured person’s behalf.

You can also make fatal accident claims if your loved one has passed away due to an accident they weren’t liable for. Legal experts, such as No Win No Fee lawyers, could help you with this.
