The process of making a Serious Injury Claim

The compensation claim process for serious injury cases can be complex. At Freeclaim Solicitors, we have over 30 years’ experience dealing with serious injury claims. Therefore you can be assured that our specialist solicitors will fight hard for your compensation, whilst making the process stress free for you. Your serious injury claims solicitor will be with you every step of the way and will bring a tailored approach to your compensation claim and help with support and rehabilitation.

First steps in making a serious injury claim

We will arrange for an experienced serious injury claims solicitor to meet with you and/or your family for a confidential, no obligation meeting to discuss your serious injury compensation claim and to provide practical advice and emotional support.

Because of our experience, our serious injury lawyers will always endeavour to provide both emotional and practical support, as well as the best possible legal advice.

Liability or fault for the accident or injury

In order to succeed in a serious injury claim for compensation, it is necessary to prove that another person was at least partly at fault for the accident which caused your serious injuries. When we first meet with you, we will advise you of your prospects of success. We will carry out all necessary enquiries to ensure that your prospects of success are as good as possible.

Freeclaim Solicitors have a reputation for winning cases other solicitors have not wanted to take on. It is always worthwhile arranging a no obligation meeting to discuss your claim, even if you consider you were at fault or you cannot remember the accident. Remember, all enquiries are free with no obligation.

Building the case and early support

We will put together a team of tried and trusted serious injury and rehabilitation experts to help deal with the issues arising in your case. Typical issues include therapies, transport, aids and equipment, adapted accommodation, short and long term care, as well as past and future loss of earnings including returning to work (where appropriate) and leisure activities.

We will fight to obtain an early interim compensation payment to cover your immediate and ongoing financial needs, as well as fund the experts’ recommendations.

We work with specialist Case Managers who work with you and your family to put all the necessary arrangements into place and deal with any problems which arise. In our experience, it is essential to give any arrangements such as moving into new accommodation, employing carers, etc. time to settle down before a proper assessment of what is needed and the cost is made.


As soon as we can say with a reasonable degree of certainty what it will cost to provide you with as fulfilling a life as reasonably can be expected, we will prepare a final detailed schedule of damages and look to enter settlement negotiations with the Defendant’s Insurer’s Solicitors. Negotiations can be extremely stressful for serious injury clients and their families. Our experienced serious injury solicitors can take the stress out of negotiating settlement to achieve the best possible result.

It is at the point of negotiating settlement that all the detailed work and preparation pays off and enables us to achieve as favourable a settlement as possible. This part of the process can often be settled out of court with the other party’s insurers. However, some cases may be taken to court. Our serious injury claims solicitors will be with you every step of the way. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that the outcome of your compensation claim is a successful one. And remember, we have over 30 years’ experience in handling multi-million pound claims.
