Is there a time limit to claim compensation for an accident?
The solicitors at Pierre Thomas have a strong reputation for recovering compensation for people injured in the UK, Europe, and worldwide, from minor injuries to fatal cases and those involving severe brain, spinal or other injuries.
Recent examples of cases include:
If your accident was in the UK:
Being based in London, we are always able to bring a personal injury claim in this country for accidents that happened in England & Wales, and we may be able to do so for accidents in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We can act for:
If your accident was in France:
We employ bilingual and dual qualified lawyers and have particularly strong links with France. If your accident happened in France, there will often be a choice of whether to bring the claim in England or in France; we will advise you about the best option for you depending on the circumstances of your case.
If your accident was in another country:
In some circumstances, your claim can be pursued in England & Wales, even if you were injured while travelling abroad. If this is not possible, we can still handle your compensation claim following an accident anywhere in Europe and beyond, with the assistance of our established network of specialist international injury lawyers.
Pursuing a claim in another country can be worrying. Be reassured that, if your claim proceeds in France, Spain, or any other country, we will always provide clear advice to you and explain the subtleties of the process in an intelligible way and in your own language.
We will explain your funding options at the outset of your claim.
For accident claims brought in the UK we are usually able to offer a conditional fee agreement if you have a good case. This means you do not have to pay anything up front and your claim will not cost you anything if you lose. This is sometimes known as a ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement.
For claims that will be made abroad, we will review the available options for funding your legal fees and discuss what is likely to best suit your requirements.
For accident claims made in the UK, compensation is awarded for the injury itself and for your financial losses.
Once liability for the accident has been established, we will obtain a medical report from an independent doctor describing the nature of your injuries and how they affect you. This will allow us to estimate the value of the injury claim.
You can also claim reasonable financial losses and expenses resulting from your injuries, including loss of earnings, rehabilitation costs, modifications to your home and other losses such as compensation for the loss of enjoyment of your holiday.
Compensation for a criminal injury is calculated in accordance with a tariff, and we can offer you guidance on the amount you are likely to receive.
Other countries operate different compensation systems and we will assess what compensation you are likely to receive once we have details of your claim and have identified the legal jurisdiction that will deal with it.
