Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a time limit for a personal injury claim?

This will, to a large extent, be determined by the nature of the injuries you have sustained and whether the defendants have conceded liability for the accident.

In road traffic accidents where liability is not an issue and the injuries sustained are not serious we would expect matters to be settled in a matter of months. More complex cases can take longer. The vast majority of all cases are settled within 12 months.

It is important to realise that whilst we will act speedily and efficiently we need to ensure that you have fully recovered from your injuries or that the doctors have determined an accurate prognosis.

Once a claim is settled you cannot claim more later on so we need to ensure that you receive the proper compensation for your injuries and any complications that may arise in the future. We will never pressurise you into settling your claim, we want you to be entirely satisfied before it is finalised.

Please see our Personal Injury Claims services.

Do I have to hire Stonehewer Moss after the free initial case review?

No. The free initial case review is just that, but we hope that having advised you initially you will allow us to help you should you decide to pursue the matter with professional help.

Who is the CICA?

The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority is a government organisation that can pay money (‘an award’) to people who have been physically or mentally injured because they were the blameless victim of a violent crime such as an assault. Whilst you must have notified the police to be eligible to make a CICA claim, the offender does not necessarily have to have been convicted of, or even charged with the crime for you to make a claim. However, your claim could be affected by your behaviour, your criminal record, your failure to co-operate with the police, or if you have delayed making the claim.

What happens to the awarded compensation?

If a claim is made by a parent or guardian, the financial compensation awarded is put into a secure trust fund until the injured child turns 18 years of age. However, a parent or guardian can make a request to access these funds to cover essential costs such as medical expenses if required.

If the claim is made by the injured child once 18 years of age, the compensation sum will be paid directly to the claimant.

How much compensation will I get?

How much you will get from a clinical negligence claim 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 and loss of earnings you may have had as a result of their negligence. 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 their negligence.

Our aim is to get you the highest amount of compensation as quickly and stress-free as possible.
