Soft tissue damage, such as whiplash, strains and tears, can be painful and result in long-term health problems. If you’ve suffered a soft tissue injury because of somebody else’s negligence, our solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.
How To Make A Soft Tissue Injury Claim
Call us on
0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll ask you some questions about the injury, including how it happened, whose fault you believe it is, and how your life has now changed.
If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.
If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.
We can help you to claim for:
Sprains, strains and tears
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Repetitive strain injuries
Soft tissue injuries may result in a loss of earnings, or you may need to retrain completely if you can no longer manage your role. We can help you to claim not only for these physical effects, but for the impact this has on your mental health.
How Long Do You Have To Make A Soft Tissue Injury Claim?
The standard time limits for claims are three years from the date of the injury, though we encourage you to claim as soon as possible because this makes it easier for us to gather evidence to support your case.
There are some exceptions to the three year time limit, for example if yours is a criminal assault claim, you’ll have two years to make a claim. We’ll assess your individual circumstances during your free initial consultation.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Soft Tissue Injury?
There are no set compensation amounts for soft tissue injuries. Instead, we’ll look at your unique circumstances and assess your claim based on:
Your physical pain
Loss of earnings
Inability to take part in hobbies or manage routine tasks
Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.
Where applicable, we can also help with interim compensation payments to cover costs while you wait for your compensation to come through. For example, if you need ongoing rehabilitation, we may be able to cover costs for travel to medical appointments.
No Win No Fee Soft Tissue Injury Claims
Most of our soft tissue injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be taken from your final settlement.
