No. Your compensation is usually net of tax. Any claim for loss of earnings will be paid less any tax and National Insurance you would have paid. If you are claiming benefits related to your accident, your award might be reduced to repay these benefits. If you are claiming benefits not related to the accident, your lump sum award may affect your entitlement to benefits. We can help you with this by creating a personal injury trust.
It’s best to get legal advice as soon as possible after your road traffic accident so that we can obtain crucial evidence and because there may be time limits.
We offer a Free No-Obligation Case Review so that we can understand more about the accident circumstances and to advise you on whether or not you have a claim.
We will guide and support you throughout the personal injury claims process, dealing directly with third parties and their insurance companies on your behalf to secure compensation for your injuries quickly and stress-free.
In some cases, road traffic accident claimants will make a personal injury claim through their car insurers’ solicitors. If you’re not happy with how your claim is being handled, you may be able to change legal advisors. If you’re looking for a local, specialist personal injury lawyer that can offer a more personal service, talk to us about moving your claim to us.
An interim payment in a personal injury claim is an amount of money paid by the insurance company for the Defendant to the Claimant prior to settlement of the claim. For example, in some cases, people often cannot get back to work immediately and consequently have a much-reduced income. In such cases, we can often make an application for an interim payment for you to alleviate any short-term financial difficulties.
In larger cases where someone has been very seriously injured, we may ask for an interim payment to enable works to be undertaken on the injured persons’ house to make it more accessible, for example, a walk-in shower or to lower the kitchen work surfaces for a wheelchair user.

There are certain limitation periods for making a personal injury claim and some exemptions too.
The Limitation Act stipulates the date by which you can make a claim after you have had an accident. In most cases, this is three years from the day the accident occurred. After this time, you cannot easily make a claim unless there is some special reason why you should be allowed to do so. For example, if you were unable to deal with your own affairs for a period of time.
There are exceptions, for example, the limitation date for children who have an accident when they are under 18th. is their 21st birthday. That is three years from when they became an adult.
If your injury was not caused by a one-off event, for example, a repetitive strain injury, then the three-year timeline only starts to run on the day you became aware you had an injury as a result of the negligence of a third party. This might be the day you are diagnosed with a condition by your doctor.
There are a lot of exceptions to the three-year limitation date rule (you might only have one year to make a claim if your accident was in Spain or two years if it was on a boat) so the best advice is to give us a call and we will tell you where you stand.
The value of every compensation claim for a road traffic accident depends on the seriousness of the injury as well as the chances of you making a full recovery.
In handling your claim, we will also look at other financial aspects such as medical expenses, vehicle repairs, and loss of earnings you may have had as a result of the accident. We will also factor into the value of your claim any long term medical expenses that you may incur for life-changing injuries that require ongoing medical treatment.
We will also seek to obtain interim payments where possible to help you to avoid financial hardship caused by an accident on the road that wasn’t your fault.
Whatever the nature of your injury, our aim is to get you the highest amount of compensation as quickly and stress-free as possible so that you can get your life back on track.
For the majority of cases involving road traffic accidents, claims for compensation must be made within three years of the date of the accident. There are, however, some exemptions to this rule in instances whereby you may be able to make a claim for an accident dating back further.
