When can I make a claim?

In general terms claims usually need to be made within 3 years of the incident that caused the injury.


Time limits do not start for children until they reach the age of eighteen. However the sooner you contact us the better we are able to collate the evidence and prepare the claim.

Do I have a case?

If you are unsure whether you have a claim, you or a family member just need to pick up the phone to us and talk it over with one of our team members.

What are my chances of winning?

When you contact us we will give you realistic advice on the chances of winning based on the information you provide. The more information you can give us at the outset the more accurate the assessment we can make. However, it is not possible to give a definitive answer on any case.

How much will it cost?

Contacting us for initial advice on your claim will cost you nothing, we offer a free 20 minutes consultation.

If we advise you to pursue a claim with us, we will review all the options for funding it and make sure you are fully informed before we proceed on your behalf.

How much compensation will I get?

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on a number of factors. These include but not limited to:

  • the seriousness of your injury;
  • how it has affected your life;
  • how much money you have lost or will lose as a consequence; and
  • whether you will need extra support in the future.

Keeping you informed

As we assess you and your circumstances, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate idea of the financial value of your claim. You can be assured that we will do everything we can recover the maximum amount of compensation available to you.

What happens when I claim?

Once you have instructed us to claim on your behalf, we will investigate your case thoroughly by gathering witness statements and other relevant details about your injury and on-going requirements.


As soon as we have all the details of your case, a claim will be made against the relevant person or company, who usually have insurance. We will then wait for a response from the insurance company you are claiming against. This can go one of two ways – either they decide to meet your claim or they do not.  If they do not have insurance it doesn’t mean you cannot continue with the claim it may mean for example that further due diligence will need to be carried out to ensure that the relevant party has sufficient funds to meet a claim.


The vast majority of cases are settled before they go to the Royal Court. However, if your case if one of the few that is to be decided by the Royal Court this is perfectly normal and we will be there to help you every step of the way.
