Life Changing Injury Compensation Claims Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee
If you have suffered a severe and life-altering injury, you need a legal team with exceptional experience by your side.
The lawyers here at Calio Claims have many years of experience in helping clients make successful claims for compensation for the most serious injuries. We understand all of the ways in which you have suffered loss and may continue to suffer loss as you progress through life. It is for this reason that we fight to obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to. We also offer assistance with rehabilitation and aftercare should you need it.
Serious injuries include any injuries which result in permanent disability, reduced life expectancy or long-term health problems. The pain and suffering that accompanies a serious injury can have devastating effects on individual and families, so it is vital that victims receive compensation reflective of that. Typically severe injuries include:
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal and back injuries
- Multiple injuries
- Asbestos exposure
This list is not exhaustive, and if you have suffered an injury or illness that has had a severe impact on your life, you may be able to claim compensation.
The consequences of these accidents are complex – not just on the personal level, but in terms of the legal processes involved in providing for people’s financial futures when they have a life-changing injury. we, therefore, have a specialist team of lawyers working in this area, who would be happy to discuss your potential claim today on 0800 988 8082.
Compensation claims could encompass:
- Compensation for injuries or pain resulting from negligence
- Costs for the medical treatment, rehabilitation or aftercare required
- Loss of earnings and associated benefits
- Cost of home help required as a result of the negligence
- Cost of home modifications
- Cost of mobility aids such as wheelchairs or walking sticks
The compensation amount will be calculated on a case-by-case basis in line with your individual losses and costs. Because of the complexity of sustaining a serious injury, it is important that you have an expert on your side who can help you get the compensation you deserve. Serious injury can affect the quality of life, work and the ability to look after young children, or even carry out household tasks. When assessing your claim, we will ask you questions relating to your injury, treatment and symptoms, as well as how they have affected everyday life.
How much could I claim for a serious injury?
Compensation for serious injuries understandably attracts a higher award than other types of personal injury claims. You will receive an award for your pain and suffering, but also for any past and future financial loss. The amount awarded for pain and suffering is determined by your injury and the severity of that injury. We will strive to claim the maximum amount available to you. We are also able to assist with any access to medical care, and rehabilitation services that you may require.
In addition to winning financial compensation, our experience in this sphere enables us to offer other practical support to clients and their loved ones, for example:
- Recommendation for a case management service to arrange rehabilitation and support
- Signposting to organisations to help adapt claimant’s living environments or assist with everyday tasks
And, being part of a full-service law firm, we can advise on other legal aspects such as how to set up a personal injury trust and whether this is the best option to protect a lump sum pay-out.
It is always our priority to reach the best possible settlement without delay. In most cases, we aim to reach a negotiated settlement out of court. We will do our best to obtain interim payments for rehabilitation or care, before settlement of your case. We appreciate that, often, making a claim is a highly personal experience and that you may be very unsure of what is involved. Our team strive to build relationships based on trust and mutual understanding, so that you feel comfortable and confident going forward with your case.
