Personal Injury Solicitors

Personal injury solicitors are invaluable in helping you to resolve your compensation claim. If you have been injured, whether as a result of medical negligence, criminal activity or other categories of personal injury, you should speak to a personal injury solicitor about making a compensation claim.

Personal injury solicitors will be able to advise you on the best course of action to pursue your compensation claim. Many people are not aware of the different options available to them.

Compensation for injuries caused through crime

If you were injured as a victim of crime, you may be entitled to compensation through the Scheme of Compensation for Personal Injuries Criminally Inflicted. The scheme pays compensation for expenses and losses suffered as a direct result of a violent crime or whilst assisting or trying to assist in preventing a crime or saving a person’s life.

Alternatively, the court that convicts and sentences the offender may decide to award you compensation in that setting. In the latter case, the court may ask the Probation Service to supervise the payment of the compensation. Personal injury solicitors can advise you on which option is best for your situation.

If you were injured in any other negligence situation, other than medical negligence, you may be able to resolve your claim through the (the Board). The Board (formerly known as the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB)) is an independent statutory body set up to assesses the amount of compensation due to a person who has suffered a personal injury and resolve claims.

Your personal injury solicitor may commence the claim through the Board by first notifying the respondent of your intention to make a claim and then submitting an application to the Board. If the respondent does not agree for the Board to assess the claim, then your personal injury solicitor will have to pursue your claim through the court system on your behalf.

Medical negligence claims

If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, you should seek a personal injury solicitor who specialises in medical negligence claims. Medical negligence claims are a more complex type of claims than other categories of personal injury claims. Your personal injury solicitor may need to source expert opinion to establish the basis of your claim.
