- Get you the compensation you are entitled to and make sure, to the best of our ability, that any expenses or losses as a result of the injury/illness are covered.
- Make sure your case is dealt with sensitively and professionally. You will always be treated as an individual.

HOW WILL YOU HANDLE MY CLAIM?
Free Initial Consultation
When you contact our friendly team, we will initially talk to you about your illness or injury. We will assess the merits of your claim to determine whether it is likely to be something we can help you with. Any advice given to you at this stage is free, confidential advice and you are under no obligation to make a claim after speaking to us. From here we will determine the best course of action for you.
Any conversation you have with our team is strictly confidential and any details you provide us with will remain private.
Contacting Those Responsible for Your Injuries
After you decide to pursue your claim through Smith Jones, we will contact those responsible for your accident or illness (most likely the insurers of the responsible party) to ask them if they are aware of the injury or illness and whether or not they accept responsibility. If they accept responsibility, we will help you get the medical treatment and rehabilitation you require, as well as begin negotiations regarding your compensation. If they do not accept responsibility, we will contact you to discuss what happens next and will advise you how to proceed.
Gathering the Evidence
Our team will examine your case in great detail and will gather all the necessary evidence to support your claim, such as witness statements and professional opinions from independent medical professionals. This allows us to determine the exact circumstances which caused your injury or illness, how the injury or illness has impacted your life, and indicates any care you may need to aid your recovery.
Final Settlement and Compensation Awarded
We always do our best to settle claims before they go to court, ideally, this would involve the responsible party accepting responsibility for your injury or illness and agreeing to pay compensation. If they do not accept responsibility then cases may go to court in order to establish liability. Even in circumstances where liability is not accepted your case may still settle before it goes to court.
The majority of personal injury cases are indeed settled before they reach court. If those responsible have accepted liability for your injury or illness, our team will always try to reach an outcome that takes into account your pain, suffering and any expenses you have incurred during this period, such as loss of earnings.
If we are unable to obtain suitable compensation, or if liability is not accepted, then we will commence court proceedings. Should it come to this, we will guide you through the process every step of the way to make sure you get the best possible outcome.
Taking Your Case to Court
Once we send your claim to court, the court will provide a timetable setting out how your claim will proceed. This will be explained to you in detail by your specialist representative.
WHAT IF A TRIAL DATE IS SET?
Before a trial begins, it is our job to provide the court with all of the documents that may be relevant to your case, such as medical reports and witness statements etc. You should keep us informed of anything that you feel might be useful, and also let us know if you receive any new documents during the case. This is so we can make sure everything is up to date and we can progress your claim properly.
Before we send final drafts of certain documents to the court, we always ask those we are representing to confirm the details are correct. We will always ensure that you understand the process and make sure that you are satisfied with how the case is progressing.
Most of the time the court will try to set the trial on a date and time that is suitable for everyone involved, taking into account matters such as your health, personal obligations, work and the individual aspects of the case. If the case does go to trial, our team will be there to support and advise you at every stage.
COMPENSATION SETTLEMENTS BEFORE TRIAL
Even if the case does go to trial and the date is set it still may not actually make it to the courtroom. Many cases get settled before the trial starts even when the responsible party hasn’t accepted liability. If this looks like it may happen we will make sure that any compensation that is offered is acceptable to you and appropriate to the circumstances.
Our personal injury solicitors will make sure the case runs as smoothly as possible, we will always keep you up-to-date with its progress and explain every aspect clearly. You’ll always be able to get in touch with us if you have any questions. You are welcome to use our claims calculator to help give you an idea of the amount of money often awarded for your type of injury.
If you would like to make a personal injury claim today, contact us on 0800 195 95 90.
WHAT CAN A COMPENSATION PAYOUT COVER?
Every case is individual, so there is no set or expected amount of compensation awarded. Comparing one case to another is difficult to do as every case has unique factors that make it different from any other. Ultimately, the compensation you receive is based upon how serious your injury or illness is and its effects on your life and ability to work in the long term. There are multiple factors that can impact the amount of compensation you receive, here is a list of several factors to be considered:
- Pain and suffering – This covers the trauma or stress caused by your accident or illness.
- Expenses – Including travel, medical equipment and any items that help with general day-to-day living.
- Loss of earnings – This covers any time you may have had off work or any time you still need. This can include long-term outcomes such as never returning to work.
- Rehabilitation and Care.
- Adaptations – This involves any requirements to make changes to your home or with your car arrangements.
CAN YOU TAKE OVER FROM MY CURRENT SOLICITORS?
If you already have a claim ongoing with another firm of solicitors and are unhappy with the service you are receiving, you may be able to transfer a claim to another firm depending on the stage the claim has reached and the agreement you have with them. Our team will be able to advise you further about the transfer process.
If you have difficulty with your current personal injury firm, then we would recommend you always bring this to their attention first. We may be able to deal with your case if you have exhausted your options with them but we are unable to resolve a complaint for another organisation.
Taking advantage of our free consultation is the best thing you can do, as this allows you to tell us some more details about your case so that we can advise you on the individual circumstances.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are in need of further advice.
CAN I MAKE A 'NO WIN NO FEE' CLAIM?
The majority of personal injury cases that we accept are funded on a No Win No Fee basis.
This is also known as a ‘conditional fee agreement’, often abbreviated to ‘CFA’. This method of funding allows potential clients to make a personal injury claim without needing to pay for legal fees in advance of receiving their compensation; delaying payment until their case is won, and protecting the client from financial risk just in case their claim is unsuccessful.
No Win No Fee cases may not suit everyone and no matter how you choose to fund your claim, we will always talk it through with you to help you decide what best fits you and your claim.
If your case is not successful you can rest assured that there is no financial risk to you and you will not have to pay any legal costs.¹³ If we feel a case is not going to be successful then we will inform you of this during your initial consultation or at the earliest this becomes apparent.
Our specialist injury solicitors consider thousands of personal injury claims every year and in our experience, very few are the same despite similarities between them.
When you claim compensation, be assured we‘re in this together. As part of our commitment to you, we will always ensure:
- There is no financial risk to you in pursuing the claim and you will not be “out of pocket” as a result. Only when the case is successful will we claim for expenses.
- There will never be any surprises, and if your claim is successful you will always keep the lion’s share of any damages awarded.*
- You will receive an exceptional level of skill and expertise in pursuing your claim: with over 29 years of legal experience, we have a vast history of successful cases, many of which were previously turned down by other lawyers.
*Full terms and conditions can be found in your Conditional Fee Agreement.
WHAT HAPPENS ONCE YOU WIN YOUR CLAIM?
Once your claim is settled, your opponent will pay some of our basic legal costs. If this does not cover the full cost of the claim, we may deduct an amount from the compensation awarded to you. We cap this at a pre-arranged percentage so that there will never be any surprises and you will always keep the lion’s share of any damages awarded. This will all be explained well in advance and all details can be found in the Conditional Fee Agreement you will receive and sign at the beginning of your claim.
In recent years, to help with your legal costs, the government introduced a 10% increase in the amount awarded to you for the pain and suffering element of your compensation. This is to encourage people to seek the help they may need. At the same time, unfortunately, the government reduced the amount of costs lawyers could recover from the defendant, which means that some costs are now taken from the claimant’s compensation to cover the shortfall in legal fees accrued in pursuing a claim.
Should your claim be successful, not everything will be paid by your opponent, including:
- The premium for your insurance policy to protect you fully against any risk of legal costs.
- Some of your basic legal costs that cannot be recovered from your opponent.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LOSE YOUR NO-WIN NO-FEE CASE?
Naturally, we cannot guarantee that every case is going to be successful. We always do our best to make sure a case has a high chance of success, and will inform you at the earliest indication if we think it doesn’t. If we lose the case for whatever reason, you are protected from financial risk through your no win no fee / conditional fee agreement¹³.
When beginning a claim with us you will always be dealing with a team who act professionally and warmly. We will always take the time to get to know you and your situation. Our team are experts in their field with years of experience dealing with claims involving injuries and illness.
Our specialist injury solicitors act for people all across England and Wales and have the qualifications, knowledge and experience to help you achieve the compensation you are entitled to. We have dealt with thousands of successful claims in the past and have secured over £10 million in compensation for our clients in the past year alone.
Our legal team will always operate as efficiently as possible and will spend their time investigating and working on your claim to ensure you get the best result possible.
WHO CAN MAKE AN INJURY CLAIM?
The first question all of our new clients have is “can I make a claim?” Our personal injury solicitors are aware that you could be making a claim for a number of reasons and have experience dealing with many different claim types. Sometimes, the injured party may not be able to make a claim on their own, so may need someone to make a claim on their behalf. We have put together a list of circumstances which may require the injured party to ask somebody to make a claim on their behalf. This is called a ‘litigation friend’ and may include making a claim:
- On behalf of children made before the child turns 18. If the child wishes to make their own claim, provided somebody has not already made a claim on their behalf, they have until three years after their 18th birthday to do so.
- For someone who currently, for whatever reason, may not have the capacity to deal with their own case.
- On behalf of a loved one who has passed away.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CLAIM?
In the UK, the standard limitation period in which you must make a personal injury claim is three years from the date of your accident or the date of the diagnosis for your illness. Each country’s law is different, in some countries you have as little as one year so you should contact us as soon as you can.
The longer you put off making a claim, the more likely it becomes that problems may occur finding witnesses to provide statements, or tracking down documents that may be needed as evidence to support your claim. It also reduces the time our team have to investigate and work on your claim. This is why it is important to get in touch with us as soon as you can, so that we may assist in the preparation of your claim and so that these documents are easier to acquire.
There are some exceptions to the three-year time limit, including:
- Claims on behalf of children made before the child turns 18. If the child wishes to make their own claim, provided somebody has not already made a claim on their behalf, they have until three years after their 18th birthday to do so.
- Criminal injury claims – if you’ve been hurt in a violent crime, your case will be handled by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, this means that the time limit is only two years to make a claim after an incident.
- Cases involving a claim on behalf of someone who doesn’t have the capacity to handle their own case. There are no guarantees on how long you will have to make a claim and we always recommend seeking legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
- Fatal claims – to make a claim on behalf of your loved one, you will have three years from the date they died or from the date you or your loved one was aware of the injury or illness to make a claim, whichever is the earliest.
- Accidents or illness on board ships – after an accident or illness on a cruise liner or ferry, you usually have two years to make a claim from the date when you left the ship.
- Accident at an airport or on board an aircraft – claims have to be made within two years of the time that you arrived at your destination.
- Accidents/illnesses abroad – different time limits apply overseas depending on the country’s laws. We suggest you contact us as soon as possible to find out more as different laws apply depending on the type of claim you are looking to make.
If you would like to make a personal injury claim, we always recommend that you contact us as soon as possible so you do not exceed the time limit applied in your case. The courts do have the option to allow a case to progress after the stipulated time limit but this is rare and is not something that can be relied upon.

CAN YOU HELP ME ACCESS REHABILITATION & MEDICAL CARE?
By making a personal injury claim through us, our lawyers will always work hard to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve and access the rehabilitation and support that you’re entitled to. Specialist medical care can be essential in helping you make the best recovery possible.
In the years that we have been handling personal injury claims, we’ve witnessed how rehabilitation can make a huge difference to the recovery and long-term wellbeing of those who have suffered an accident or illness. If you’re in need of rehabilitation following a serious injury, our solicitors will work with our client liaison managers, support groups and long-term care providers to set up a plan for your care in the future.
We always take the time to understand the needs of every client we deal with and what they need from their individual rehabilitation. If you already have rehabilitation treatment on the NHS, we can work alongside you and help you access any other support that you may need.
HOW MUCH COMPENSATION CAN YOU CLAIM?
This is different in every case. There’s no such thing as an average personal injury claim. The consequences of an injury aren’t the same for any two people so the compensation awarded will be different and tailored to your specific needs. There are two parts to a personal injury compensation settlement:
- General Damages – to compensate you for your injury and for your pain and suffering.
- Special Damages – to compensate you for any expenses you’ve incurred, loss of earnings, and your future care needs etc.
Therefore, it’s impossible to speculate accurately about how much compensation you could claim, without knowing your personal circumstances. This is the value of an experienced personal injury solicitor, who will take your personal circumstances into account when valuing your claim, in order to get you the compensation you deserve. Fortunately, this is also the purpose of our initial conversations which are used to take as much information from you as possible so we can help you move forward in the most appropriate way.
A number of factors can influence how much compensation you’re awarded, such as:
- The severity of your injury/illness
- Expenses that you’ve incurred
- Loss of earnings
- Future care needs
- Rehabilitation, therapy and support
- Household adaptations
- Whether you ‘contributed’ in some way to your injuries (for example, by not wearing your seatbelt in a road traffic accident). This is considered a contributory factor which can reduce the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
HOW LONG DOES A CLAIM TAKE?
It’s hard to give an exact amount of time when it comes to settling a personal injury claim. The length of a claim depends on several factors, including:
- The severity of your injury or illness
- Whether responsibility for your injury is admitted
- The complexity of injury
- How long it takes to collect evidence
- The response from the other side
When working out your compensation, we need to get a thorough understanding of the long-term effects your injury will have on your life. This is important in calculating or settling your claim, as if we settle too early, it could mean that you receive less compensation than you’re entitled to receive.

Common Personal Injury Claims:
ACCIDENT AT WORK CLAIMS
If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident at work, then asking for compensation can be a daunting task. Your employers are the ones who pay your salary and taking legal action against them is something most people may be too afraid to do. Sometimes though they are responsible for your misfortune and a claim for compensation is the only way this can be resolved. It is important to note, that a claim is generally brought against the company’s insurers and that contact will mainly be through them, bypassing your employer for much of the process.
Our team of solicitors have successfully represented many people that have made an accident at work claim and will be happy to help you get the compensation that you’re entitled to. It is only reasonable to expect to be kept safe whilst at work. Your employer must follow the guidelines set out across a range of health and safety laws and regulations. If they don’t, and you suffer an injury at work, then you may be able to make a personal injury claim against your employer.
Our team of experienced solicitors are dedicated to getting you compensation for injuries caused by a range of accidents at work. Incidents involving:
- Lifting and manual handling
- Falls from height
- Slips and trips
- Crushing injuries
- Farm Accidents

Our dedicated accident at work solicitors are experienced in work-related accident and injury litigation. In addition to getting compensation, we’ll also help you access the best medical care and rehabilitation so that you can live life following your injury. We have helped clients who are members of trade unions as well as those who are not. We will advise you according to your individual circumstances.
If you’re facing immediate financial pressures because you’re unable to work – our team can also help with advice on your entitlement to state benefits, and in more complex cases can try to get some of your compensation early in the form of an interim payment.
Most of the claims we handle are on a no win no fee basis – which means there’s no financial risk to you if your case is unsuccessful. On top of this, our initial consultation is free. This is where we will discuss your work accident claim and how we’re able to help.

INDUSTRIAL DISEASE CLAIMS
If you have developed a long-term work-related illness, our solicitors could help you claim industrial disease compensation.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, your employer has a duty of care to you as an employee, and must protect you from any health risks in the workplace. This can be done by providing health and safety training within the workplace that includes advice on appropriate breaks, or rest plus the correct use of safety equipment (PPE).
Unfortunately, failure to follow the best practice of health and safety is common, and workers are put at risk of a number of conditions due to employer negligence. Our solicitors have helped clients make industrial disease claims following a range of illnesses.
There are many conditions that can be caused by employer negligence. If you’ve developed a work-related illness, you could be able to claim compensation.
Contact us today for a free consultation on your case, and we’ll offer our advice on whether we think you could make an industrial disease claim.
PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS
When it comes to products such as medicines, food, electronics, power tools, or even the cars we drive, we have every right to expect that the products will meet certain standards. We should also expect that their manufacturers have tested them rigorously and that they are safe to use.
But all too often, defective and faulty products can end up on shelves and in our homes, and sometimes the worst can happen and these products can cause serious injury. If a faulty or defective product has injured you, then our lawyers may be able to help you claim compensation.
Our experienced product liability solicitors have helped people claim faulty product compensation for injuries caused by faulty products, including:
- Defective beauty products such as straighteners/curling tongs
- Defective electrical products
- Defective sporting goods such as bicycle parts

ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT CLAIMS
Being involved in a road traffic accident can be a traumatic and life-changing experience for all involved and can even affect the relatives of those involved. Sometimes an accident is nobody’s fault and at other times someone is responsible and that person may not be you.
Road traffic accident claims can be made in a variety of circumstances, and aren’t limited to just car accidents. They can be related to any road user, whether a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist, public transport user, or the driver or passenger in any other type of vehicle; all of whom may be entitled to compensation following an accident.
We have a proven track record in road traffic accident claims, helping thousands of clients recover compensation.

- Sensory loss
- Organ damage

SLIPS, TRIPS AND FALLS IN PUBLIC PLACES
When you leave your front door, whether it’s to the park, to town, or any other public place, it isn’t unreasonable to expect the day to go without the risk of injury. Companies have a duty of care whenever you enter their premises; and public bodies, such as councils and local authorities, must make sure public highways are reasonably maintained.
Even if you don’t know who was responsible for your accident, it’s worth getting in touch – our specialist personal injury solicitors will investigate your case in-depth to work out who is responsible.
Smith Jones Solicitors have enabled thousands of our clients to receive the compensation they deserve following accidents. Injuries such as:
- Accidents in supermarkets

- School Accident Claims
