An accident claims solicitor is a legal professional that handles compensation claims, in the field of personal injury law, on behalf of injured persons.

Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence or clinical negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a dentist, doctor or nurse provides a patient with substandard care causing them to suffer unnecessarily.

Providing answers to questions commonly asked by accident victims.
Q: How are personal injury claims valued?
A: As every case of personal injury is different, claims must be valued individually, based on their unique details. There are typically two different types of damage that make up a personal injury payout; general damages and special damages. General damages account for your injuries, both physical and psychological, that you suffered as a result of your accident. On the other hand, special damages account for the tangible losses that you’ve incurred in relation to your injuries, such as medical expenses or loss of income. If you can prove that you suffered these financial losses, which can be done by retaining receipts and the like, you could be able to recover them as part of your personal injury claim.
Q: How long do I have to make a personal injury claim within the time limit?
A: If you had an accident within the last 3 years that you’d like to make a personal injury claim for, it’s likely that you’re still within the time limit to do so. In general, claimants have 3 years from the date of their accident to make a claim. If they try to claim once this time limit has already expired, they may not be able to do so. In some cases, exceptions can be made to this 3-year limitation period, however. For example, if you believed your injuries were your own fault but recently realised that they were the result of your employer’s negligence, 3 years may have already passed. However, in this case, the claims time limit could begin from the date of this knowledge rather than the date of your accident, meaning you would have 3 years from the date that you realised third-party liability. To see if you’re within the relevant time limit to make a claim, please get in touch for a complimentary consultation today.
Q: How Do I Make An Accident Claim?
A: Our panel of accident claims solicitors Shoreham By Sea have a broad range of expertise handling personal injury claims, so we’re bound to find a personal injury solicitor with the right sort of experience to handle your personal injury claim.
Q: Do Claims Need To Be Made With Local Injury Solicitors?
A: No. Accident Claims UK operates a nationwide service, which means that our solicitors can cover much of the country. Many people believe they have to use a “solicitor near me” to handle their claim, however, some personal injury claims are handled remotely using the phone and email these days. Therefore, it is not always necessary to use a “solicitor near me” to handle your claim.
Q: Will A Doctor Look At My Injuries
A: If you have been injured or made ill because of negligence, or any other type of accident caused by negligence, you will need a medical assessment to make a full negligence claim. During your medical assessment, a doctor will create a medical report where they could diagnose your injuries, prescribe what medical treatment you will need going forward and will explain what ongoing effect your injuries are likely to have on your future quality of life if any. Your accident claims solicitor will use the medical report to value your claim.
Q: Where Will I See A Doctor?
A: Accident Claims UK works with a panel of trusted physicians in your local area. We will arrange for you to see one of these physicians (listed below) for your medical assessment or another depending on availability.
