Accident claims advice in the UK covers many areas of personal injury law. You may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation in the UK (whether in Scotland, England & Wales or Northern Ireland) if you have suffered any of the following:-

  • An accident at work (including work-related illness or disease)
  • An injury caused by a road traffic accident
  • An injury caused by medical negligence at hospital or by your doctor

There are many other types of injury you could have suffered as the result of someone else's fault (whether intentionally or negligently) and the amount you can claim will vary depending on the type of injury you sustained (you can claim for pain and suffering) and the amount of other losses you suffered as a result, such as financial losses, with lost wages (loss or earnings) as a result of your inability to work. There are many other considerations, rules and case law regarding personal injury claims and these vary depending on where your accident or injury happened in the UK (eg in Scotland, England & Wales or Northern Ireland) or abroad.

Our accident claims guides set out everything you need to know in a clear, concise way. You can start by viewing our Complete Guide to Making a Personal Injury Claim in the UK here.
