What is a serious injury?

Serious and catastrophic injuries often happen without prior warning. Unlike other cases involving injuries which are resolved in a relatively short period of time, these are more long-lasting and have more disabling effects on the patient’s life, requiring expert handling.

We have helped individuals in a variety of Serious Injury Claims for compensation, including:

No Win No Fee Serious Injury Claims

Accidents at work, car accidents, falls from height, medical negligence and a number of other incidents can all have potentially life-changing effects.

As well as the physical effects, one can also suffer from psychiatric effects, such as PTSD, anxiety and depression. Although these mental health problems may not present themselves immediately after the devastating accident, they may cause a much bigger impact on life than the injury alone.

A serious injury will have a significant impact on your day-to-day life and it is important to quantify this.

How do I make a Serious Injury Claim?

If you’re looking for serious injury compensation, you will need to be able to prove that it occurred due to another’s negligence, whether this is an accident at work, a road traffic accident, or other major incident. The value of your case will depend on the severity of your injury, the impact on your life, your working capabilities and your needs for care. Whether you have suffered physically or mentally, it is likely that your life is going to be different and you will have to put measures in place to adapt to your new situation.

When claiming serious injury compensation, medical experts will be instructed to evaluate your symptoms in order to comment on the effect the injury has  had on your life, as well as the effect your injury is likely to have in the future in order to calculate how much compensation you’re owed.

Brian Barr Solicitors work with the best medical professionals in the country – from GPs, to pain relief specialists and rheumatologists, to neurologists and psychiatrists – we know who to speak to help prove your case and you can be assured that Brian Barr will ensure that we compile as much evidence as possible so that you have the funds to help ease your situation. We appreciate that living with chronic pain or a serious injury can be exhausting.

The last thing you want to do is see yet another doctor as part of your legal process. However, each medical expert will be able to give evidence as to your condition and how this impacts your life. These reports are essential in securing the highest levels of compensation to ease the difficulties caused by chronic pain as much as possible. The more evidence to support you, the higher the award.

Your Serious Injury Claim may also be subject to time limits, depending on the type of accident. If you have suffered a serious injury and want to find out if you have a valid claim for compensation, contact Brian Barr Solicitors today for a free, no-obligation assessment.

How much Serious Injury Compensation can I receive?

Everyone is unique, and everyone’s situation following a serious injury is different. At Brian Barr we do not apply a one-template-that-fits-all approach to our personal injury claims, instead we look at your individual situation and the impact that the injury has had on your life. We tailor our approach to the individual. We will work hard to ensure that you, as an individual, get the compensation you deserve. For many clients this has resulted in compensation awards of over £1 million.

The areas that will be taken into account when calculating the compensation you are owed generally include:

  • Cost of medical treatments and exams
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Physical therapy costs
  • Cost of psychological and mental health care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss in future income and benefits
  • Adaptations required for living independently – e.g. renovations to your property or adaptations to your vehicle
  • Impact on family members who may now have to care for you

While part of the compensation awarded in Serious Injury Claims is outlined by the Judicial College Guidelines, the expertise of our team can ensure you receive the maximum payout, taking into consideration each effect the injury has had on your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Clients move to Brian Barr every day – it is easy and hassle free and we have a 97% compensation claims success rate.

The reason for changing personal injury lawyers will vary from person to person, but firstly you should ask yourself “are your current solicitors specialists in chronic pain and serious injury litigation?” If they are not specialists, then your claim could be misunderstood and undervalued.

Some of the key reasons clients move to Brian Barr include:

  • A lack of understanding or expertise – this is common in complex personal injury cases, such as a brain injury or other serious or catastrophic injuries, and can be extremely frustrating
  • Your expected settlement is unlikely to cover your long-term care costs and lifestyle changes.

Whether you are just starting your claim or are close to settlement, if you’re unhappy with the progress being made on your serious or catastrophic injury claim, you may wish to consider transferring your case over to Brian Barr. We specialise in chronic pain and serious injury litigation.

In any accident or insurance claim, transferring your claim from your current solicitor to Brian Barr Solicitors is easy and hassle-free. You are under no obligation to stay with your current solicitor and are entitled to switch your solicitors for whatever reason you wish whether you are unhappy with their service or feel that you are not going to get the compensation that you deserve.

If you’re considering changing your personal injury solicitor, you can talk to one of our specialist solicitors to discuss your specific claim in some detail. Even if you’re just looking for some advice and guidance on what to do next, we’re here to help you where we can. Instructing a specialist Serious Injury Solicitor should be a priority.

Funding your case with Brian Barr is easy and stress-free.

You will not need to worry about your legal fees if you have Legal Expenses Insurance – if you are acting within the terms and conditions of your policy. Your insurer may inform you that you must use one of the solicitors they appoint in order to take advantage of their policy. However, this may not apply in the following circumstances:

  • If proceedings have been started, you are entitled to insist on the solicitor of your choice. We can easily find out if proceedings have been started.
  • You may be entitled to have the solicitor of your choice even before proceedings. The Insurance Ombudsman’s view is that, in valuable or complex cases, the insurer should agree to the appointment of the policyholder’s preferred solicitor at any stage of the process. Serious and catastrophic injury claims are complex and we can often liaise with your insurer and convince them to allow us to act for you.

If you have no suitable legal expenses insurance, and you have a strong case, we can often act for you under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), often called a ‘no win no fee’ arrangement. Then you would pay a capped proportion of your damages to us if you win, and absolutely nothing if you lose. Minimising your financial risk is only one of the ways our team at Brian Barr Solicitors minimises the stress of claiming compensation for a serious injury.
