MSRS-Serious injury claims

Understanding your rights and knowing how to secure the necessary support can make a significant difference.

We recognize the significant impact a serious injury can have on both you and your family. Our dedicated solicitors are here to help you claim compensation and secure the highest quality care, rehabilitation, and support.

Defining a Serious Injury

A serious injury is one that causes lasting effects. Compensation for such injuries must account for future implications, including:

  • Loss of future earnings if you can’t return to work or perform your previous job
  • Modifications to your home or relocation
  • Mobility aids and specialized transport
  • Ongoing care, support, and rehabilitation

Deadlines for Filing a Serious Injury Claim

Generally, you must initiate a claim within three years of the injury. There are exceptions, such as for minors or individuals without the mental capacity to claim themselves. However, do not rely on these exceptions. Seek legal advice promptly to understand your eligibility. Contact us as soon as possible after your injury for several reasons:

  • Ensure your claim is filed within the legal time limit
  • Collect supporting evidence more efficiently
  • Commence work on your case, including obtaining early interim compensation for immediate medical treatment and care
  • Allow our Support and Rehabilitation team to begin providing the care and support you need

Timeline for Resolving Your Claim

Serious injury claims often take several years to resolve. This duration allows for a comprehensive assessment of your injury’s impact and recovery potential, ensuring sufficient compensation for your long-term needs. Early interim compensation payments may be available if the responsible party admits fault early in the process.

Determining Compensation Amounts

The compensation you receive will be tailored to the specific impact of your injury. Calculating compensation is complex and requires the expertise of specialist lawyers to ensure you receive what you deserve. The final settlement will depend on various factors, including the extent of your recovery.

No Win No Fee Claims

We handle most serious injury claims on a no win no fee basis, which means no upfront costs and no financial risk if your claim is unsuccessful. This arrangement protects you from legal expenses if you lose your case. You may also have legal expenses coverage through home or motor insurance or trade union membership.

We have successfully handled numerous cases, helping clients secure the compensation and care they need to rebuild their lives.
