Serious Injury

What is meant by the term Serious Injury?

Whilst the term itself can mean different things to different people, it generally refers to the following:

• Head & Brain Injury
• Spinal Cord Injury
• Paralysis or Reduced Mobility
• Amputation
• Blindness
• Broken Bones & Fractures

What could be considered as a Birth Injury?

Your Serious Injury (or that of your child) may have resulted from:

• An accident abroad
• An accident in a public place
• An accident at work (including in Military Service)
• A road traffic accident
• A fall from a height
• A sporting activity

Whatever the initial cause, at BRM Legal we know that any such incident can affect your health & well-being, your employment opportunities, your support needs and your overall quality of life.

The nature of a Serious Injury is such that it is life-changing.

It will most probably significantly affect your day to day life and that of your family; you may have evolving healthcare needs and your employment situation may have changed quite dramatically. 

There is often a great deal of trauma associated with Serious Injury and that is why it is important that you place yourself in the hands of an expert such as BRM Legal.

Making a Claim

How do I make a claim?

Simply by contacting us at the first opportunity. The earlier we speak, the easier it is to capture all the details of your case and start working towards receiving the compensation you deserve.

In our initial free consultation we will provide you with all the information you need to pursue your claim and will explain to you how you can proceed on a NO WIN NO FEE basis*.

Where liability has been admitted, we will request interim payments to help with any immediate costs you are incurring (e.g. medical costs, extra childcare, rehabilitation, travel to appointments etc.). These payments are intended to make things a little easier for you at the present time and will be deducted from your final compensation sum.

As well as confirming the validity of your claim in our initial, no-obligation call, we can also give you an indication of the kind of compensation payment you may be likely to receive.

What will it cost to pursue my claim?

At BRM Legal we understand that you may already have been left out of pocket through having to pay various expenses. For this reason we are happy to take on your case on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that you will incur no costs unless your claim is successful*.

Even when you win your case, the majority of your legal expenses will be paid by the other side and any other costs will simply be deducted from your total compensation amount.

*Please note: This is subject to a No Win No Fee agreement having been signed with us (in conjunction with our insurers) and the terms of that agreement having been met by both parties.

How long do I have to make a claim?

The general rule is that a claim must be made within 3 years of the accident or incident however not everyone is aware of the fact that they have suffered through negligence as symptoms may take some time to develop (e.g. in the case of work-related diseases). For this reason, the claim deadline may be 3 years from the date that you became aware that your illness or injury was due to negligence.

There are also a few other exceptions to the 3 year rule which are as follows:

• Those with impaired mental capacity and are unable to make their own claim have an unlimited time to do so
• Children can have a claim made upon their behalf any time up until their 18th Birthday and after this date the usual 3 year rule applies

How long will it take to receive compensation?

This depends on the individual circumstances of the incident in question and whether the other party have admitted liability. The severity of your injury and your on-going recovery and rehabilitation needs will also be a factor in the time taken to reach a settlement as we want to ensure that we include every aspect of your future needs in the final sum, including your on-going rehabilitation and your total loss of earnings.

We will of course keep you updated throughout the process to tell you how your case is progressing and what the likely final compensation figure might be.
