What is a Serious Injury Claims?

Serious injury claims are typically associated with head injuries, neck injuries, and spine injuries. However, trauma to other areas of the body could also be classified as a serious injury, including burns, fractures, and high velocity impact traumas. For further information on how we could help you, please select an option from our services.

What can you claim for?

Who are you claiming against?

Your solicitor must establish who the other party is, who was legally responsible for the accident and that your injuries resulted from that accident. In some cases, such as tripping over discarded rubbish in a public place, it may not be immediately obvious who is to blame. If you are not certain who caused the accident you may still be able to make a claim. Hampson Hughes Solicitors have successfully made slip and trip compensation claims against parties including employers, retailers and local authorities. In many instances, the responsible party is insured for injuries caused and we liaise directly with the insurance company who provide their cover.

Who can make a Serious Injury claim?

Anyone can claim for Serious injury compensation; however the following 3 criterias must be met:

You must have sustained an illness or injury or had an existing illness or injury exasperated as a result of medical negligence (as we act for personal injury claimants).

The injury must be a direct result of someone’s negligence (as we will claim on the defendant’s insurance).

The incident must have taken place in the last 3 years (although minors can claim from 3 years after their 18 birthday).

What are the common types of Indoor Serious Injury claims?
