Multiple Injury Claims

Having an accident that causes multiple injuries is traumatic for you and your family. We understand how life changing this is and we have decades of experience in helping people claim compensation to help them recover.

Suffering multiple injuries can leave you or a loved one uncertain of your recovery and future. Our solicitors know how to get the compensation and rehabilitation support you need to move forward. 

If you or a loved one have suffered from multiple injuries we could help. Our lawyers have experience in multiple injury claims caused by:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Falls from height
  • Accidents at work.

Multiple injuries often involve bone fractures, brain injuries or both. Injuries like these can leave you with physical and emotional trauma. Our solicitors understand how these injuries can dramatically change your life and we’ll work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.

Most cases we handle are on a no win no fee basis. This means there’s no financial risk* to you if your case is unsuccessful. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case with you in person and give you advice on how to move forward and how much compensation you can expect.

Multiple Injury Claims - More Information
    • How Can Multiple Injuries Affect My Life?
    • Suffering multiple injuries can have short and long term effects depending on how serious your injuries are. You may be unable to work for a period of time while you recover. If you have very serious injuries you may not be able to go back to work at all.

      We’ll put your mind at ease by making sure your claim covers everything you need. We’ve helped people get compensation that covers the costs of special equipment, home adaptations, loss of earnings, transport and ongoing rehabilitation needed immediately, and for the rest of your life.

    • What Are Interim Compensation Payments?
    • Interim compensation payments are paid in advance of your final compensation. They are smaller payments, paid at an earlier stage to cover the costs of your rehabilitation, accommodation and mobility needs.

      For multiple injuries we’ll always try to secure interim compensation payments to cover your immediate care needs. However, this depends on the party responsible for your injury admitting fault early on in the claim.

      When your claim settles and your final compensation is paid, any interim compensation payments will be taken off the amount you receive.

    • What Is A No Win No Fee Claim?
    • A No Win No Fee agreement means that you don’t have to pay any upfront fees when you make a multiple injury claim.*

      If your case is successful, a proportion of your compensation will go towards our legal costs, while your opponent will pay the majority of our fees. If your case isn’t successful, the costs will be fully covered by an insurance policy designed to protect you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Compensation Can I Get For A Multiple Injury Claim?

The amount of compensation you get will depend on how serious your injuries are and how they’ve affected your life. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and give you some guidance on how much compensation you might receive.

We’re often asked to take over cases by clients whose claim has been managed by lawyers who’ve undervalued the amount of compensation their clients can get. The value of using expert solicitors is that they have the knowledge to get you the maximum compensation possible that covers all your needs.

If you’d like to find out how much compensation you or your loved one might expect, call us on 0800 056 4110 or contact us online.

What Are The Time Limits For Making A Multiple Injury Claim?

Multiple injury claims usually need to be made within three years of the accident or incident that caused your injury.

However, there are a number of exceptions to this rule:

  • Mental capacity –There is no time limit to make a claim on behalf of a relative who’s lost the mental capacity to make a claim themselves. To make a claim for a loved one, a medical expert must prove that they can’t manage their own affairs
  • Children – If your child has suffered from multiple injuries you have until they are 18 to make a claim. Once your child turns 18 you have three years to make a claim (unless they lack the mental capacity)
  • Accidents Abroad – Time limits can vary and can often be shorter for accidents that happened in foreign countries so it’s best to contact us as soon as possible
  • Criminal Assaults – The time limit is usually two years from the date of the injury or assault. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from an assault it’s best to get specialist legal advice as soon as possible. As well as ensuring you don’t miss your chance to claim, contacting our multiple injury lawyers early means that we could secure your compensation sooner, helping you get the care to make the best recovery possible.

How Can Irwin Mitchell Help?

Through decades of working with people who’ve been through trauma our solicitors know exactly how to handle different situations with care and understanding.

We work hard to make sure all your needs are met. We’ll keep you informed of everything that’s happening with your claim so you can feel at ease and focus on your recovery.

In certain circumstances, we’ll try to get you an early payment from your compensation so that you can pay your bills (if you can’t work, for example) or to pay for private treatment to help you recover.

We’re also experienced in taking on complex claims and will often take on cases that have been turned away by other solicitors.

As a full-service law firm we can also provide a number of specialist support services which may be able to help with your circumstances. We have experts in areas including:

  • Wills – We can help you make a Will to protect your family in the future and can help with handling the affairs of a loved one who has passed away
  • Court of Protection – Our Court of Protection lawyers could provide you with advice on managing someone else’s affairs if they’re unable to. The team can also help set up personal injury trusts which can mean that your compensation award isn’t considered when you’re assessed for certain means-tested benefits
  • Employment – We can provide specialist advice on issues that may arise such as sick pay and your ability to complete your role
  • Asset Management – This team can help plan how your compensation could be invested to ensure that funds are available throughout your life
  • Rehabilitation – Our client liaison managers can help you access the rehabilitation services and support you need in order to make the best recovery possible.
