A serious injury claim will require the services of a specialist serious injury lawyer to deal with the intricacies of making a claim involving a significant value. Whilst most personal injury lawyers might understand how to pursue a simple accident claim, the specific nuances in relation to higher value claims such as ongoing and future loss of earnings, the need for Case Managers and specialist rehabilitation, the need for accommodation experts to deal with housing adaptations and the like might not be known to all lawyers working in this area of the law. Serious Injury Compensation have a wealth of experience in successfully handling high value claims.
Any type of injury, whether minor or serious, can result in a legitimate claim for compensation if it was caused by the negligence of another party. Even if the injured person is partly responsible, a claim can still be pursued although the damages are likely to be reduced in proportion to the degree of blame. In serious injury cases it is important to be aware of the law relating to negligence as even with a degree of contributory negligence a higher value case might have a substantial value to an injured person requiring a closer inspection of liability issues.
In serious injury cases compensation may be payable under various headings such as pain and suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA), past losses and future loss of earnings, ongoing medical treatment to be provided for on a private basis if so required, nursing care costs, past and future travelling expenses, accommodation and housing adaptations, vehicle adaptation costs, to name but a few. The amount of compensation recovered will depend upon the extent of injuries suffered (General Damages) as well as the extent of losses and expenses incurred both up to the present time and into the future (Special Damages), often quantified following involvement by a team of experts in various disciplines.
It is vitally important that the serious injury lawyer is knowledgeable about the need for the involvement of such experts and in many ways acts as an orchestra conductor in preparing the evidence from the experts in order to achieve the best possible result for the client in the shortest possible time.
Claims for personal injury need to be brought within three years of the occurrence but despite this it is essential to take action as quickly as possible so that necessary information can be gathered whilst details are fresh in the mind.
