What is Personal Injury?
You may have suffered a Personal Injury if you have received an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim and receive compensation. Personal injury is a legal term that covers physical injury, including a disease or illness, or psychological injury or illness. If you think you could have a claim for personal injury, contact our expert personal injury lawyers in Reading today.
What Kind of Accidents Can You Claim For?

Can I Make a Claim for Personal Injury?
Generally, you can make a claim for personal injury if:
– you have received an injury like those outlined above and
– that injury was as a result of someone else’s negligence.
If the person who suffered the injury is under 18 then the courts have the power to appoint someone to claim on that person’s behalf. It is also possible for a deceased person’s financial dependants or personal representatives to claim on their behalf.
There are also extremely strict time limits in place for personal injury claims and if you fail to make your claim within the time specified you will not be entitled to any compensation. These time limits can vary considerably from case to case and your solicitor will be able to advise you which is applicable in your circumstances. It is therefore extremely important to contact a solicitor as soon as possible after your accident to ensure you do not miss the time limits and miss your chance to receive compensation for your injury.
How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
It is extremely difficult to judge the value of a personal injury claim, and there is no hard and fast rule about what sums you can expect. Instead, each case is judged individually on its merits. Your solicitor will need to be in possession of all the relevant information about the full facts and circumstances of your case before they will be able to provide you with their estimate of what your claim is worth.
If you are looking for an estimate of the compensation you could be due, speak to one of our solicitors in Reading today. Once they have spoken to you and had an in-depth assessment of your personal injury claim they will be able to give you an estimate as to how much compensation they believe you should be awarded.
What is No Win No Fee?
No Win No Fee, in short, is an agreement between you and your solicitor that you will only pay for the legal services you have received if your claim is successful. In other words, if your claim for compensation is unsuccessful, you don’t have to pay a penny in legal fees – there’s nothing to lose.
