What Does Personal Injury Mean?
The legal definition of personal injury is an injury or illness that has been caused by or made worse by, someone else’s negligence.
If someone else is negligent, that may mean they are at fault and you could be entitled to a personal injury compensation claim.
Why Should I Make A Claim For My Injury?
An accident can have life-changing effects including ongoing treatment, surgery, the requirement of mobility aids, pain management, time off work or even having to stop working altogether.
This can be quite costly and add up quite quickly.
If you have suffered as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim and our team of legally trained advisors are on hand to help assess if you are eligible.
The compensation awarded can help ease the stress of the financial element, leaving you to get back to what really matters, your recovery.
The process doesn’t have to be intimidating or time-consuming as we will do everything for you on a No Win No Fee basis.
How Long Does A Personal Injury Claim Take?
It is not possible to tell you how long your claim will take as every case we work on is unique and different from another. We usually aim to settle cases within a few months; however, depending on the complexity of the case, some cases can take longer.
I’ve Been Injured Due To An Accident But How Do I Know If I Can Make A Personal Injury Claim?
If you are unsure if you’re entitled to make a personal injury claim and would like to discuss this with our team, then contact us today for free no-obligation advice. We can speak with you about your accident and give you the help you need to know your rights.
We usually advise that if your accident was within the last 3 years, it wasn’t your fault and you have sustained an injury then you should be entitled to make a claim.
How Will I Know My Claim Will Be Successful?
Each case will differ and have its own individual circumstances; therefore, there is no set rule for how an accident claim is successful. If you wish to discuss the unique aspects of your claim, then our team is happy to help and can give you expert legal advice based on the circumstances of your claim.
What Will The Personal Injury Solicitor Do?
To shorten a more complex process, once receiving all the information from you, your solicitor will begin notifying the person/company at fault.
They will work to provide the supporting evidence that they are at fault, this means that the person/company owed you a duty of care and breached this duty, this could be done in various ways, such as not paying attention whilst driving, not clearing tripping hazards in aisles, pathways etc. not inspecting equipment properly or ignoring laws or regulations that are put in place to keep you safe, acting negligently.
Once the person/company at fault has agreed liability (that they are at fault), your solicitor will then provide evidence of your injury and other losses, then begin negotiation.
How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
Every case is assessed on an individual basis due to each case having its unique circumstances. This is to ensure you get the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
To gain an idea of how much compensation you may be entitled to try our claims compensation calculator.
In order to assess how much you will be entitled to your solicitor will consider the effects caused on your work and personal life as well as the pain and suffering caused by the injury sustained.
Therefore, when assessing the amount and claiming your compensation, LPS will look to cover:
- The pain sustained due to your injury
- The impact the injury has had on your life
- Any loss of earnings you may have had due to time off work due to the injury
- Any medical expenses including treatment and medication
- Care received, even if given free e.g. by a family member
What Is “No Win No Fee”?
No Win No Fee means you will not have to worry about paying upfront for your legal fees. It also means if our solicitors take your case on under a No Win No Fee agreement (also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)) and you don’t win any compensation you will not owe them any fee, there are no hidden terms and/or conditions, just simply, if you do not win your case you do not pay a fee.
Will My Claim Be Covered By No Win No Fee?
Not every case can be covered by a No Win No Fee agreement, it is only Civil cases that can be dealt with under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
The types of claims covered by No Win No Fee agreements (CFA) are:
- Personal injury arising from a Road Traffic Accident (RTA)
- Personal Injury resulting from an Accident at Work
- Medical negligence claims
- Personal injury arising from a slip, trip or fall

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Who will pay the compensation?
It is very rare for the employer concerned to actually shoulder the payment of industrial disease compensation. In the vast majority of cases compensation comes from your employer's "Employers Liability Insurance". It is a legal requirement for all UK employers to have a policy of this type.
Furthermore, in the event that you are still employed by the defendant there are a number of legal safeguards in place to protect you from unfair dismissal or discrimination made on the basis of your claim.
Can I claim compensation following work in Scotland, if I now live outside of Scotland?
Yes. Many of our claimants now live abroad in locations such as France, South Africa and Australia. If you worked in Scotland before you moved overseas, you can bring a claim for compensation in the usual way.
If a family member has died as a result of an industrial disease, can we make a claim?
It is possible to claim compensation on behalf of a deceased family member. However, the claim must be brought within three years of the date of death. Similarly, if the claimant dies during the course of the case, the family can continue with the claim on his or her behalf.
However, if your family member has an industrial disease and later dies from an unrelated incident, you would have three years to claim in respect of the work related illness from the date they knew or ought to have known they were suffering from the condition, not from the date of the unrelated death.
What are the time limits for industrial disease claims?
You can make a claim up to three years from the date the you knew or ought to have known that you were suffering from a work-related illness, or three years from the date of last exposure to any substance or process which has caused the condition (whichever is the later date).
Given that many industrial diseases take a long time to develop, it may be that you need to make a claim decades after the firm responsible for your illness has ceased to trade. But, as long as it is within three years of diagnosis of an industrial disease, it may still be possible to claim compensation when retired or no longer work for the former employer responsible for causing your illness.
