Who is responsible for my personal injury?

This will depend on the type of injury you have sustained. If it was sustained in a road traffic accident it may be the driver who caused the accident with the damages recovered from their insurance company. If sustained in a public place it may be the owner of the property or a government body. If the injury was sustained at work or because of work, it will most likely be your employer with damages paid by their insurer.

Every accident is different, and no one claim is the same as another. This means that the claims process can differ according to the unique circumstances of each case.

At JMK, we have successfully assisted over +50,000 clients since 2003 and we are Northern Ireland’s number one personal injury specialist. To help us get the best possible result for your case, we will ask you for the following information:

  •   Details of the accident, such as where and when it occurred
  •   A police log or incident number plus any statements (if given)
  •   Details of your injuries
  •   Details and evidence of any treatment you’ve received
  •   Details of any known losses (e.g., wages, damage to property)
  •   Details of your employment which may include your income if you have been off work.

Once you’ve provided us with all the necessary information, we can bring your claim in the most efficient way. The unique circumstances of your case will determine how quickly we can bring it to a conclusion.

If there are disputes over who is responsible, called ‘liability’, or any serious losses or injuries, for example, the case may end up in court which can prolong the process. We aim to have most injury cases concluded within 12-18 months depending on the nature and complexity of injuries. It’s in your best interests to defer the conclusion of your case to ensure that a full picture of your situation is obtained, especially in cases involving ongoing medical problems caused by the accident. This allows us to ensure you are completely and rightfully compensated.

For non-injury claims, we generally aim to have your case concluded and compensation recovered within six months.

How much compensation can I get for a personal injury?

How much personal injury compensation you can claim depends on your accident, the circumstances surrounding it, and the losses suffered.

Although some claims can stretch well into the hundreds of thousands and beyond, many factors influence the outcome, such as:

  •   Your age
  •   Whether you were partially at fault
  •   The nature and extent of your injuries
  •   The nature and extent of your losses
  •   Other involved parties

JMK Solicitors specialise in Personal Injury and Road Traffic / Car Accident claims and every case is different. We have processed over thirty thousand accident cases since 2003 and we are Northern Ireland’s Number 1 Personal Injury Solicitors. We may need to obtain expert evidence before providing advice on the value of your case.

If you’d like an idea of how much you might be able to claim, speak to the road traffic accident experts at JMK Solicitors to arrange a free consultation and we will give you our honest and expert opinion.

Common issues in personal injury claims

We have identified the most common issues faced by clients and want to bust some of the myths surrounding personal injury compensation claims.

Most Common Issues

How long will it take to get compensation for my personal injury?

Every case is different and various factors will determine how quickly we can bring your case to a conclusion, such as if fault for your accident is disputed and if court proceedings are necessary to resolve the issues in your case. However, in a case which does not involve a claim for injury then we will aim to have your losses recovered and your case concluded within six months.

For cases involving personal injury, the nature and complexity of the injury will dictate how long a case takes. We aim to have the majority of our injury cases concluded within twelve to eighteen months. However, it can be in your best interests to defer the conclusion of your case to ensure that a full and complete picture of your symptoms and prognosis is obtained, especially in cases involving worsening or ongoing medical conditions. This will enable us to ensure that you are fully and properly compensated for your injury, pain, and suffering.

Can you take my case over from my current solicitor?

It is natural particularly when dealing with something as sensitive as a personal injury that you want to ensure you have the best possible person dealing with your case. It will always be advisable to instruct a solicitor who is well experienced in dealing with personal injury litigation, to make sure you get the best possible outcome in your case.

If you have concerns about the way your case is being handled by your current solicitor, you should address this with them directly. Should you remain dissatisfied with their response to your concerns then you may wish to seek a second opinion.

We at JMK Solicitors are always happy to help, we will give you an honest assessment of your case and the progress made to date and then it is up to you to make the decision to stay with the solicitor you already have or to move.

Should you choose to move to JMK Solicitors we will take care of all aspects of the move, all you have to do is make the decision.

We make people our priority at JMK Solicitors and making sure you get a straightforward and honest service is our aim.
