It is important to know that claims management companies do not pursue your claim for you. They are not allowed to and are not qualified to deal with Court Proceedings and as such cannot represent you if your case progresses to Court. As soon as you instruct a claims management company, they will normally have to pass your claim to a firm of solicitors at some point. Claims management companies are therefore little more than a middle man. We advise you to cut out the middle man and deal directly with solicitors who will fight your case.

Yes, there is a time limit of three years. You must begin court proceedings within three years of sustaining your injury, or, if you weren’t aware you had an injury, three years of the date you first became aware of the injury. After three years, the case becomes ‘time-barred’ or ‘statute barred’. There are exceptions if the personal injury happened to a child, or someone incapable of managing their own affairs.

Personal Injury Claims Solicitors Crownhill Plymouth

We aim to complete all claims within a reasonable time period. The average claim can take between 6 and 12 months to complete. A claim may take longer, as there can be disputes with the defendants regarding liability or the settlement of the claim. We always aim to keep you updated about the progress of your claim and the likely time frame to settlement.

A personal injury claim is split into two parts. The first part of your claim is the injury claim. This will be valued by using a medical report, which will be prepared by a medical expert who will provide an opinion and prognosis for your injury, i.e. what injuries you have suffered and how long you will suffer from them.

The second part of your claim will centre around any expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury and this can include loss of earnings, travel expenses, care and assistance and prescription charges.

Personal Injury Claims Solicitors Crownhill Plymouth

Yes. There are different ‘heads of claim’ or ‘heads of loss’ that you can claim for personal injury. This can include things like medical expenses, loss of earning potential, travelling expenses, care and assistance and future treatment costs.
