What is classed as a Serious Injury?

A serious or catastrophic injury is when the injured person has suffered injuries which are life-changing and from which sadly a full recovery is not expected. Such injuries may include the following:

  • Brain Injury
  • Spinal Injury
  • Amputations
  • Multiple injury
  • Fatal Accidents

If you have suffered such an injury, it is vital that you receive specialist advice and assistance to help you get your life back on track.

Common Causes of Serious Injuries

Here are the top 6 most common causes of serious injuries:

  • Accidents on construction/building sites
  • Accidents at work
  • Catastrophic road traffic accidents
  • Cyclist or Motorbike accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Errors during a medical procedure, like surgery
Can I make a Serious Injury Claim on behalf of someone else?

The law recognises that sometimes people who are entitled to claim injury compensation are unable to do so for themselves. That is why it is possible for close family to act on their behalf in order to help them to claim the injury compensation they deserve.

If you want to discuss the possibility of making a claim on someone else’s behalf, our expert solicitors will be happy to discuss the situation with you.

Is there a Time Limit on my Serious Injury Claim?

You normally have 3 years from the date of the accident or the date of diagnosis for your illness to make a serious injury claim.
