What Are Personal Injury Solicitors?

This includes university study and extensive professional training.

Our Birmingham-based teams of personal injury solicitors have spent their careers training and developing their skills to be able to help people like you to get the compensation you deserve.
How Do I Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Making a personal injury claim on your behalf as your solicitors require that we follow a legal process, which includes a series of steps:
We will write to the person or organisation responsible for your accident, notifying them that you are making a personal injury claim for your injury. In this letter, we will ask them to admit that they were at fault for your accident (this is called accepting liability), outline the basics of your case and give them a deadline to respond to us.
If they accept liability for your accident, we would then move on to the next step. If they do not accept that they were at fault for your accident (this is known as disputing liability), we will gather evidence to support your claim. This can be easier if we have access to photographs, videos or contact details of witnesses if you were in a position to gather those at the time or shortly after the event. If you were not in a position to arrange that, we will set about finding the evidence we need. This could be through witness statements, arranging for experts to go the site of the accident and prepare a report or by getting copies of any police report, for example. The cases in which liability was disputed initially end with the other party accepting liability once they are shown the evidence we have gathered.
When the second party admits liability:
Once both parties agree liability, we will negotiate on your behalf to agree a fair compensation amount. Although we will be conducting the negotiations, you will still have total control. We will inform you of every offer the other party make and give you our expert opinion as to whether the offer is a reasonable one or not.
It is extremely rare that liability and the amount of compensation cannot be agreed between the two parties. If you are unfortunate enough to end up being one of those very rare cases, your case may need to go to court to find an agreement. If this happens, we will be with you throughout the process, making sure that you get all information about what is happening and why. The friendly support of our experienced team can make all the difference to how stressful your court appearance might be.
How Much Compensation Am I Able To Claim?
The amount of compensation you are able to claim for your personal injury claim depends on two main factors. The first is the exact nature of your injury and the amount of pain and suffering it has caused you. Judicial College (a governing body) set this guideline ranges for this aspect of the compensation payment. The ranges are intentionally broad, as this allows the individual nature of your injuries to be taken into account and recognizes the fact that not all broken arms, for example, are the same.
Parts of compensation:
This is only the first part of your compensation payment is based on how much it will take to get your life back on track. The purpose of compensation is to help you get as close as possible to the situation you were in before your accident happened. This part of your claim would include any loss of earnings you may have had as a result of your accident or injury, the loss of future earnings if you are unable to continue in your previous career as a result of your injuries as well as any modifications you may require to help you heal from or adapt to your injuries. This could include the costs associated with physiotherapy or other forms of rehabilitation or adapting your home or providing careers to allow you to continue to live independently. In many cases, this part of the compensation award can far exceed the amount given for pain and suffering according to the Judicial College guidelines
