Our expert personal injury lawyers are compassionate and determined, with the legal skill and experience needed to help you claim successfully.

What if a loved one has been seriously injured? Can I claim for them?

If your loved one has suffered serious injuries and they are unable to deal with a claim themselves, it is often possible for someone close to them to bring the claim on their behalf.

The claim will still be in their name, and they will recover the compensation to which they are entitled, but you would step in (acting as what’s called their ‘Litigation Friend’) to handle the claim for them.

For more information about doing this, speak to one of our expert personal injury lawyers.

Making a serious injury claim

Serious injuries, sometimes also called catastrophic injuries, can cover all kinds of severe harm that may cause long-lasting or permanent effects on a person’s quality of life.

Some examples of serious injuries are:

If you make a claim for a serious injury, you will be claiming compensation for the pain and suffering that your injuries have caused you, but also for how they have affected your life.

You can also claim for many other losses which have resulted from your injury. For serious injuries these might include:

  • Lost earnings (as well as future loss of earnings if you have to change jobs or are no longer able to work due to your injuries)
  • Treatment and rehabilitation expenses
  • The costs of making adjustments to your home
  • The costs of equipment needed to help you – such as wheelchairs, sticks, prosthetics, modified vehicles

Our free ebook, The Ultimate Personal injury Compensation Guide, has a lot more information on the nature of compensation and the different kinds of loss for which you may be able to claim.

The legal basis for your serious injury claim will depend on how your injury occurred. You can find out more about what’s involved in different kinds of personal injury claim by looking at any of the following pages which are most relevant for you:

Serious Injury Claim FAQ

How long do I have to make a claim?2023-08-17T11:02:20+01:00

All personal injury claims have time limits placed upon them. If you do not make a claim within this time, it can prevent you from claiming.

In general, you must make your personal injury claim within 3 years of the date of the accident.

However, there are rules which can change the time limit. So, if you are worried you have left it too long, it is still worth seeking advice.  Whatever your situation, if you are thinking of bringing a personal injury claim, it is always best to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

How can claiming for a serious personal injury help me?2023-08-17T10:59:10+01:00

Making a personal injury claim may sound like a daunting prospect when you are still grappling with the effects of your injuries. But making a claim can actually help you with your recovery, help you in adjusting to the new situation and, as far as possible, getting you back to your preferred way of life.

Some of the main ways in which a claim can do this is by:

  • Allowing you access to rehabilitation and assistance (such as professional care)
  • Providing financial support at a difficult time. In many cases, you may be able to receive compensation payments whilst your claim is still ongoing. These are called ‘interim payments’ and can serve to reduce the financial impact which your injuries may have had.

Offering a way in which to take back control of your life, helping you to focus on your recovery. It may be impossible to undo the injury itself, but compensation can provide you with the capability to reduce as many of its negative consequences as possible.

How much compensation will I receive for a serious injury?2023-08-17T11:00:57+01:00

Compensation valuations should take into account the extent of your injuries as well as the ways in which your life has been affected by them.

This means that many circumstances, unique to your situation, have to be considered to accurately value your claim.

It also means you should be wary of any ‘valuations’ given by claims calculators and other online gimmicks – as these will not bear much resemblance to the actual compensation to which you may be entitled.

When you instruct Truth Legal, our expert lawyers will value your personal injury claim as soon as they have the information to do so. This ensures that you have a valuation which is founded upon the harm that you have suffered.
