Personal Injury FAQs
A personal injury is harm experienced in terms of damage to the body, mind, or emotions - resulting from the negligence of another party. A personal injury can be direct injuries or indirect consequences, such as emotional distress following the death of a loved one due to someone else’s negligence. Examples of personal injury claims include workplace accidents and road traffic collisions.

We understand that each personal injury claim is unique, so we cannot immediately tell you the exact amount of compensation you’ll receive. The compensation is split into two parts:
- General damages - this is determined by the severity of the injuries and the recovery time.
- Special damages - this will cover current and predicted expenses incurred from the injury. This includes losses such as loss of income, medication and perhaps specialist equipment.
Although we can’t provide an exact compensation amount, we will use our injury claim expertise to offer you an estimate when you get in contact with us.
You typically have three years from the date of the accident or injury to bring a claim, although we recommend reaching out as early as possible. How long your case takes will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether the opponent admits blame, so it is impossible for us to say exactly how long it will take.
A relatively straightforward claim, such as minor whiplash or when the opposing party admits fault, may only take a few months. A claim involving more serious injuries or when the opposing party disputes responsibility will take longer, as we need to collect medical evidence. We do this so that any awarded compensation takes into account your long-term medical needs or potential loss of earnings. The duration of your recovery may also affect the compensation amount, as we may need to wait to fully understand the extent of your injuries. The duration of your personal injury claim could also be extended if the case goes to Court due to a criminal offence, requiring police charges.
At Gavin Edmondson Solicitors, we understand your personal injury compensation is vital in supporting you during your treatment and recovery. Once liability has been established (the other party has acknowledged responsibility), you can seek interim compensation payments. These are partial payments that are provided before the full compensation payout. These interim payments will be deducted from your final compensation amount, and can be used to cover living expenses, private treatment, or perhaps rehabilitation.
You usually have three years from the date of an accident or injury to bring a personal injury claim, but we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible. Legal rules (Statute Of Limitation) can prevent a case being brought after the time limit but it also better to start a claim as soon as possible to for other reasons, such as obtaining witness statements.
Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcomes for you following your accident or injury. We achieve this by assessing both the severity of the injury and the expected recovery time, as well as any long-term effects. This means that we are likely to require access to your medical records, and for you to undergo a medical examination. This process usually only takes around 30 minutes and is conducted by a medical expert. We’ll discuss all of this in more detail to ensure you fully understand the process.
