What you need to know
Can I make an accident claim?
If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be able to claim compensation.
Our specialists will assess your case on its merits based on the information you give us and will advise you as to how successful your claim for compensation is likely to be.
As for who can make a personal injury claim, if there has been a breach of statutory duty or someone's negligence has caused your injury, you're eligible to bring a claim.
With respect to personal injury claims made by people under 18, the courts will appoint what is known as a 'litigation friend' to claim on that person's behalf. The litigation friend would usually be a parent of family member.
In fatal accident claims, the deceased's financial dependents or personal representatives can claim for loss of dependency, for example if the family's sole breadwinner has died.
