Serious Injury Claims: What are they?

Serious injuries, sometimes referred to as catastrophic injuries, are defined as physical damages a person may have sustained which have life-changing and/or extreme, long-lasting consequences. In many cases, a serious injury claim can involve a complicated traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, traumatic amputation of an upper or lower limb, development of chronic pain, polytrauma or long-term psychological trauma.

A serious injury claim can be a complex and potentially lengthy legal process, and one that will require the skill, experience and expertise of a specialist legal team to bring to a just conclusion. It involves seeking the rightful compensation owed from the party at fault, for the damages and losses incurred by the injured person. Choosing the right personal injury solicitors is paramount when seeking a personal injury compensation claim as a result of serious injury. OH Parsons pride ourselves on being leading serious injury claims solicitors out of Slough helping victims of serious injury win the compensation they deserve.

Can Your Injury lead to a Serious Injury Compensation Claim?

Be aware that if the particulars of your unique situation and injuries are not detailed above, it may still be possible to build a winning serious injuries case and make a serious injury compensation claim. However you sustained your injuries, and whatever the outcome, contact our expert solicitors and explain what happened. If we determine the case as eligible, our team will assist you in building the case.  

What is the Process to Make a Serious Injury Claim?

The goal of a serious injury claim is to put the injured person back into the position they were before the events of the incident took place. Sadly, it’s not always possible to totally recover the person’s state of health to its former condition; however, a serious injury claim aims to secure the best available rehabilitative measures for the person, assist in making their situation as manageable as possible, and to win a compensatory package of damages to ensure there are no financial losses or further suffering caused as a result of the injury.

As it’s essential to fully explicate and understand the unique nature of the situation, at the preliminary stage the case will involve investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident, and establishing exactly what occurred. From there, our legal team will obtain the necessary witness evidence and documentary evidence from the party at fault, and liaise with the HSE, police, and local authorities as appropriate.

We’ll also obtain A&E, ambulance and hospital records, and examine them in order to identify the most suitable course(s) of treatment, and what treatment(s) have been provided up to that point. At periodic intervals, consideration will be given to the instruction of suitable liability and medical experts, along with consultation and opinions of senior barristers where appropriate.

Once the overall strength of the case has been assessed, and if the potential compensator does not acknowledge their liability in the matter and/or refuses to provide interim funding, court proceedings will be issued as necessary.

How Long Do You Have to Make a Serious Injury Claim?

Serious injury claims may take some time to resolve, as the injured party takes the time needed to convalesce through necessary surgical procedures and recover from the initial trauma. The endpoint of the recovery journey may bring the person to a very different lifestyle, occupation and income to the one they experienced before the accident. The time limit for an injury claim is 3 years.

The key to a successful claim is early intervention, and the medical, financial and legal experts of the appropriate specialism to undertake the litigation process. This is where the instruction of an experienced serious injury solicitor at OH Parsons can make all the difference to the speed and success of your claim.

Trusted Serious Injury Solicitors

In order to win compensation, it will be necessary to demonstrate that the accident occurred as a result of negligence, or a breach of statutory duty. Our experienced team of serious injury solicitors regularly assist a wide range of clients in building robust serious injuries claims, and securing the necessary rehabilitation and interim damage payments to cover all related financial shortfalls.

In the case of a serious injury claim, our solicitors approach the injured person as an individual. Each case is different; the person’s needs and injuries are unique in their response to trauma and recovery. We focus on providing clear, cogent advice and helping each person manage each step of their journey.

Our aim is to obtain a substantial compensation package and provide support throughout the case process. We’ll do away with the legalese and explain what’s happening in clear and simple terms, so that the injured person and their loved ones feel supported. The case manager will provide appropriate advice from the outset regarding entitlement to benefits, and be on-hand all the way through the process to advise on settlement and referral to financial advisers at the case conclusion.

Serious Injury FAQs

A serious injury can have a devastating impact on a person's life, and can also lead to major mental and emotional suffering on the part of friends, family and loved ones. It’s not uncommon for these people to provide support, acting as unpaid carers, which can then affect the practicalities of their own jobs, personal ties and commitments. In both the short and long term, family finances may suffer a significant blow.

In the case of a serious injury, the injured party will require immediate and far-reaching, often specialist help. This may include taking such steps as seeking a professional assessment of immediate needs, or a tailored programme of rehabilitation. It’s often not possible to access this treatment on the NHS in a timely manner, and so injured people may be prevented from obtaining the medical intervention which is most-suited to their situation, and which can help bring about the best possible outcome.

An effective rehabilitation programme involves several stages; initially, it will be necessary to source the appropriate medical opinions, treatments and equipment. The seriously injured party will also need to find means to fund this professional, specialist care, and appoint a case manager to help guide them through the potentially difficult process of dealing with the NHS, private practitioners and the DWP.

In catastrophic injury legal cases, it is possible to obtain much-needed interim payments, to help make up for any shortfall in the injured person’s sick pay and to cover the costs of ongoing treatment. Depending on the situation, interim payments may also be used to facilitate suitable alternative housing for the injured person, if it is deemed reasonably required before the case is brought to a conclusion.

If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury that wasn’t your fault, and you’re struggling to deal with the financial, physical or emotional fallout, contact OH Parsons and begin the serious injury claims process today. Our experienced legal team will be happy to discuss the details of your case.

As is always the case with personal injury claims, the exact amount of compensation you receive will vary, depending on the particulars surrounding the accident and the nature of the injuries you sustained. 

The final compensation sum will also be dictated by the level of impact the injuries have had on your life; often, the more deeply damaging or life-changing the injuries, the more likely you will be to receive a larger sum. The financial damage package will also cover the cost of travel, treatment, rehabilitation, loss of income and other incurred costs as necessary.
