Benefits of making a personal injury claim

As well as claiming compensation for the pain and suffering you or your family member have endured as a result of your accident or illness, if Blackwater Law solicitors represent you in your claim we will also seek compensation to cover any past or future loss of earnings (if you are unable to return to work). If your injuries or illness are so serious that you will require professional care and rehabilitation, whether short-term or long-term, the cost of this care can also be claimed.

Claiming for loss of earnings and future provision of care provides you and your family with financial security and the peace of mind that you will be able to afford the care and support you require.

Expert evidence to support your personal injury claim

When you instruct Blackwater Law, your lawyer will utilise a national network of specialist medical experts and have one of these experts assess your case and provide supporting medical evidence for your claim. This ensures that the legal argument put to the defendants in your case is supported by the best possible evidence. This gives your case the best possible chance of success but will also mean you receive the maximum compensation amount.

The exact experts that your solicitor at Blackwater Law instructs to provide supporting evidence will depend on the nature of the injuries you have sustained and the exact circumstances of your case. However, commonly lawyers at Blackwater Law will instruct:

  • Occupational therapists
  • Cardiothoracic surgeons
  • Care experts
  • Orthopaedic surgeons
  • Neurologists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Prosthetic limb experts
  • Pain specialists
  • Dermatologists
  • Neuropsychologist
  • Paediatric specialists

How much will you get from a personal injury claim?

No two personal injury claims are the same. The value of your claim for personal injury compensation will depend on the severity of your injuries, or those of your loved one, as well as other factors such as whether you have dependent children, whether you can return to work and whether you require short or long-term professional care to help in your rehabilitation and recovery or support you in going about every your everyday life.

How long does a personal injury claim take?

The length of time it will take to settle your personal injury claim will depend on a number of factors including whether or not the defendant(s) accept liability or defend the claim. Even in cases where defendants accept liability at an early stage, they can fiercely negotiate the amount of compensation to be paid to you. This can mean your personal injury claim takes longer to settle as more evidence is required to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation. Your personal injury solicitor at Blackwater Law will give you expert advice and guidance at every stage.
