Claiming compensation for a bodily injury
One of the most difficult aspects of any compensation claim is to place a value on the amount of money you shall receive. Of course different solicitors will give you different estimations, simply because they go off the amounts they have won for their clients. This is the same for Tylers Solicitors; we can only give you an estimate of what you will receive for a bodily injury claim. The amount of compensation you will actually receive also depends on the seriousness of the injury. For instance, a broken bone is more likely to fetch more compensation than say a deep cut or heavy bruising.
Tylers Solicitors receive all different types of bodily injury claims and, based on the information we have gathered over the years, we can give you an estimate of the amount of compensation you will receive for your injury.

Bodily injury can range from minor injuries to severe injury and no two cases are ever the same, which is why it is tougher to place a valuation on the amount of compensation an injured person can receive. Not only do we have to assess which part of the body was injured, we also have to take into consideration how you received that injury and whether you were at fault or not. All of this has to be considered if you are planning on making a compensation claim for bodily injury.
The first thing to do after your accident would be to contact your doctor and get a diagnosis of your injuries, calculate if you are eligible to work and how much you are going to lose because you are unable to. Secondly, if you received your injury because of an unguarded hole in the pavement, or a raised flag, then you should take pictures of the scene where you received your injury. Once you have that information then contact Tylers Solicitors on 0800 699 0079 and we will then proceed to talk you through your next steps.
There are a number of different elements to keep in mind when it comes to making a compensation claim, because the longer you are out of work the more expensive it can become to run your everyday life, especially if you have a mortgage to pay and children to feed.
- Financial Claim – A financial claim is claiming to be reimbursed for any money that you may have earned or will have been paid if it wasn’t for your injury. Lets face it, if you are injured then this can have a huge effect on the way you function at work. For instance, if you work in a warehouse and you break your hand under some racking then you are unfit for work because you cannot lift with one hand. If you work whilst you are injured you are risking further injury and later in life this could catch up on you.
- Specific Injury – A specific injury is a serious injury such as a broken arm, ankle or leg. These types of injuries are really serious and your claim is valid just for suffering them. A serious injury will keep you out of work for much longer than anticipated and may even cause you mobility issues, in which case you will need to rely on public transport to get to the local hospital and back, or to visit your physiotherapist. All this you should keep a record of as it is costing you, the injured party, your hard earned money to treat yourself for an injury that wasn’t your fault.
- Pain and Suffering – If you are constantly in pain or discomfort then you might have a claim. It is difficult to place an amount of compensation of this type of injury but it is still a valid claim type. If you are in constant pain then you can claim back for medicines and treatments you have had to pay for to make yourself feel more comfortable.
- Future Damages – If your injury is serious and will disable you from earning later on in life, you can claim for future damages. Future damages are based off the money you could have earned if it wasn’t for your injuries. They also include any medical care you may require such as nurses and round the clock care. Just because this type of claim is for future damages it doesn’t mean that the money is paid in the future, you could be paid right now for your future losses.
There are a number of ways you can receive a bodily injury. You could be the passenger in a car and another motorist collides with you causing you injury, then you are eligible to make a claim. You could be the victim of a serious criminal assault, such as grievous or actual bodily harm, in which case you can claim for compensation for your injuries. Bodily injuries can happens to anybody, man, woman or child, and some cases have even led to death, in which case you can start a lawsuit on behalf of your loved ones.
