What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

If you have suffered a disease, illness or a personal injury due to the fault of another person, and if this has happened within the last 3 years, you are probably eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. This means you will be eligible for funds to compensate for how you have suffered following your injury that was no fault of your own.

At OH Parsons, we have a large and loyal base of clients who have obtained significant compensation for their personal injuries through our expert services, and our years of combined expertise means we are well placed to provide guidance throughout the entire process.

Evaluating the Strength of Your Personal Injury Claim

Assessing the strength of your personal injury claim is a critical step in determining the likelihood of a successful outcome. We’ll support you in carefully evaluating various factors, including the evidence available, the extent of your injuries and damages, the clarity of liability, and any potential legal complexities. Our experts will conduct a thorough analysis to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your case, providing you with an honest assessment of its viability. With our expertise and guidance, we will work together to build a strong and compelling personal injury claim that increases your chances of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

It is essential to have a clear understanding of the statute of limitations that applies to your personal injury claim. The statute of limitations sets a specific time limit within which you must file your claim to preserve your right to seek compensation. This time limit varies depending on the jurisdiction and the type of accident or injury involved. 

At OH Parsons, our experienced solicitors are well-versed in the applicable statute of limitations and will ensure that your claim is filed within the required timeframe. It is important not to delay seeking legal advice, as exceeding the statute of limitations may result in the loss of your ability to pursue a personal injury claim. 

Assessing the Viability of Your Personal Injury Claim

Determining the viability of your personal injury claim is crucial in understanding the potential for compensation. We’ll be sure to carefully assess the details of your case, considering factors such as the strength of the evidence, the extent of your injuries, and the liability of the other party involved. From there, we will provide you with an honest evaluation of your claim, guiding you on the best course of action and the likelihood of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

The Importance of Seeking Medical Attention After an Injury

Seeking immediate medical care after sustaining an injury is of paramount importance for both your health and your personal injury claim. Prompt medical attention not only ensures your well-being but also creates a crucial link between your injuries and the accident. Medical records, diagnoses, and treatment plans serve as vital evidence in establishing the extent of your injuries and the impact on your life. 

Factors That Determine the Value of Your Personal Injury Case

The value of a personal injury case depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, the impact on your daily life, the extent of financial losses incurred, and the strength of the evidence supporting your claim. 

Our experienced solicitors at OH Parsons will carefully evaluate these factors to determine the potential value of your case. We will consider medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical care needs, and any other relevant damages to ensure that you receive fair and comprehensive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Assessing Liability in Personal Injury Cases

Assessing liability is a crucial aspect of any personal injury case. It involves determining who is at fault or responsible for the accident and the resulting injuries. Our skilled solicitors at OH Parsons will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your case, gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with experts when necessary. We will assess all aspects of negligence or wrongdoing, such as failure to uphold a duty of care, negligence in maintaining premises or equipment, or any other factors that contributed to the accident. By carefully assessing liability, we will build a strong case to hold the responsible party accountable and seek the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Comparative Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

In personal injury cases, the concept of comparative negligence comes into play when determining liability for the accident and the resulting injuries. Comparative negligence recognises that multiple parties may contribute to the accident or share fault to varying degrees. This means that even if you were partially responsible for the accident, you may still be able to claim compensation. 

Our experienced solicitors will carefully analyse the circumstances of your case, gather evidence, and work to establish the extent of each party’s negligence, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve.

The Role of Expert Witnesses in Personal Injury Claims

Expert witnesses play a crucial role in personal injury claims by providing specialised knowledge and opinions regarding the accident, injuries, and their impact on your life. These professionals, such as medical experts, accident reconstruction specialists, or vocational experts, lend their expertise to help establish liability, assess the severity of your injuries, and determine the appropriate compensation. 

Resolving Disputes Through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods, such as mediation or arbitration, offer an alternative to going to court for resolving personal injury disputes. ADR can be a faster and more cost-effective way to reach a settlement, allowing you to avoid lengthy court proceedings. 

Our skilled negotiators are experienced in using ADR techniques to facilitate open and constructive discussions with the opposing party or their insurance company. We will advocate for your rights and work towards a fair and satisfactory resolution, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve without the need for protracted litigation.

Going to Court: What To Expect in a Personal Injury Trial

While many personal injury claims are resolved through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution, some cases may proceed to court. If your case goes to trial, it is essential to be prepared and understand what to expect. 

Our dedicated team at OH Parsons will guide you through the entire process, ensuring that you are well-informed and supported at every stage. We will present your case effectively, cross-examine witnesses, and argue on your behalf to seek a favourable verdict. Our experienced trial lawyers will fight tirelessly to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

If you have suffered from any minor or major personal injury owing to the negligence of another person, then you can claim compensation against that person.

Any injury that is caused by the fault of another can generally be claimed for, and these injuries can be physical or mental. When making a personal injury claim, it is necessary to show that your injury was caused through the fault of the other party. Our teams can assist you in gathering the evidence for this.

Sometimes, multiple injuries can be caused by one accident. Perhaps you have suffered a combination of physical and psychological injuries. Whatever the cause of your injuries, we can review this and advise you on which of them can be used in your claim, on a case by case basis.

Our personal injury solicitors will be sure to keep you fully informed throughout the personal injury claim process, and any required evidence or documents that need to be shared will be requested with plenty of notice.

Related Information on Personal Injury Claims

Preserving evidence is crucial for the success of your personal injury claim. Documenting the accident scene, taking photographs, gathering medical records, and keeping a record of any related expenses will strengthen your case. This evidence will support your claim for compensation and help establish liability of the responsible party.

Contributory negligence refers to the partially responsible party’s degree of fault in a personal injury claim. If you are found partially at fault for the accident, it can affect the compensation you receive. 

When contributory negligence is present, the courts will assess the degree of fault assigned to each party involved in the accident. This means that if you are found to have contributed to the accident in some way, your compensation may be reduced proportionately to your level of fault.

For example, if you were involved in a car accident and it was determined that you were 20% at fault for the collision while the other driver was 80% at fault, your compensation may be reduced by 20%. This is because the law recognises that both parties involved share some responsibility for the accident and its consequences.

Our experienced solicitors will navigate the complexities of insurers and litigation to ensure your rights are protected and seek the maximum personal injury compensation you deserve.

Personal injury cases not only involve physical injuries, but can also lead to significant emotional distress. Serious accidents can cause trauma, anxiety, depression, and other psychological effects. So, you may be entitled to compensation for emotional distress as part of your personal injury claim. We will help you gather the necessary evidence and advocate for your rights, ensuring that all aspects of your suffering are considered in seeking fair compensation.

Witness testimony can play a crucial role in validating your personal injury claim. Witnesses who observed the accident or have relevant information can provide evidence to support your version of events. Their accounts can strengthen your case and establish liability for your injuries.
