A personal injury claim is a legal process you can initiate when you've suffered harm due to someone else's negligence or intentional act. It's not just about claiming compensation; it's about holding someone accountable for their actions, and for the physical, emotional and financial toll the injury has taken on you.
A personal injury can have a ripple effect on your life. Beyond the immediate pain and suffering, it can lead to medical expenses, loss of earnings, and even long-term health issues. Making a claim can help you cover these costs and provide a sense of closure.
The process starts with establishing that the other party was at fault. This could be an employer who didn't follow safety protocols, a driver who was texting while driving, or the operators of a public space who failed to invest in proper maintenance. Once liability is established, we'll work on quantifying your damages, which can include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Making a personal injury claim is your legal right. If someone else's actions have negatively impacted your life, you have the right to seek compensation. It's about making sure that you're not left to deal with the consequences of someone else's actions on your own.
While the legal aspects of a personal injury claim are vital, we understand that the emotional aspects are equally important. We'll guide you through the complexities of the legal system, while being sensitive to how this experience is affecting you and your loved ones.
Personal injury claims come in various shapes and sizes, each with its own set of rules, challenges and considerations.

The duration of a personal injury claim can vary widely, depending on several factors. Here's a broad outline of what can affect the timeline:
We know it's important for you to have a clear idea of how long things will take. While we can't give you an exact timeline, we'll keep you informed every step of the way.
Time is of the essence when it comes to making a personal injury claim. In most cases, you have three years from the date of the accident, or the date you became aware of your injuries to make a claim. This is the standard time limit for personal injury claims in the UK.
If you're making a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), the time limit is usually two years from the date of the incident.
There are some exceptions to the three-year rule. For example, if you were a minor at the time of the accident, the clock doesn't start ticking until you turn 18. Similarly, if you're claiming on behalf of someone who lacks mental capacity, different time limits may apply.
For industrial diseases like asbestos exposure, the three-year limit starts from the date you were diagnosed or became aware that your condition was related to your work environment.
Time limits are in place to make sure that evidence remains fresh and reliable. The longer you wait, the harder it can be to gather accurate evidence and witness statements. As such, it's always best to act quickly and get in touch with a solicitor as soon as possible.
The amount of compensation you could receive for a personal injury claim varies widely based on several factors. While we can't provide an exact figure, we can give you an idea of what influences the amount:
Legal precedents : previous cases similar to yours can also influence the amount of compensation you may receive. We'll look at these to give you an idea of what to expect.
If you've suffered a personal injury due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation. At Switalskis, we have extensive experience in handling a wide range of personal injury claims. We'll take the time to understand the specifics of your case and how it's impacted your life.
