If you have suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault, you may be able to make a claim for damages.

Here at Price Slater Gawne, we have a team of legal experts dedicated to obtaining the maximum amount of compensation for those who have been hurt by someone else.

Damages are calculated based on the level of pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injury, and medical evidence will be used to support this element of your claim. The injury damages will also incorporate any psychological impact a serious injury may have had, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or depression.

If it can be proved that your injury left you unable to work, and you lost earnings as a result, the damages you receive can include lost earnings and work related benefits, lost pension, as well as loss of future earnings.

You can also be entitled to claim damages for any expenses that support your recovery, such as medication costs, nursing costs and rehabilitation care. If you need to modify your house or car because of your condition, you should be entitled to claim damages for those costs too.

Interim payments

Interim payments are when you get part of your Serious Injury compensation before your claim has finished. These payments can help you pay for medical care or cover lost earnings while your claim continues. Our team of Serious Injury legal specialists always look at this element of your case as a matter of urgent importance, and have many years of experience in securing those interim payments for our clients when they need them, as they recover from their illnesses and injuries. Because we have seen first-hand how important they are for getting people’s lives back on track after a serious accident or trauma.

You can use interim payments to:

  • make up for lost earnings if you can’t work due to your injury
  • adapt your home or buy adaptive equipment, such as an accessible vehicle, a  leg brace, or changes to make your bathroom easier to use
  • pay for in-home care or nursing
  • pay for private medical care or rehabilitation
  • cover the cost of travelling to medical appointments
  • treatment

Your final compensation payment will take into account any interim payments that you’ve already had. This means that your final payment will be lower, but you won’t get any less money overall. In our experience, many people prefer to get interim payments rather than one big lump sum; in addition, many people depend on the help that interim payments can give, as they help you spread your compensation out and mean that you cover costs as and when they come up. With interim payments, you don’t have to put off medical procedures or equipment purchases until your claim is over.
