What sort of injury claims do Glassbrooks deal with?
Our expertise and unrivalled resources mean that we are able to act in virtually any type of personal injury claim. Like most solicitors,
the majority of our work is made up of claims arising from road traffic accidents, accidents at work and tripping and slipping accidents in
the street and other public places. However we also regularly take on more specialist personal injury claims, please call us for more
Another firm has told me I don't have a case. What should I do?
Contact us as soon as possible. Our expertise and experience often allows us to take on and win cases others think hopeless.
Will I have to pay anything to start my claim?
In most cases no. Not one penny. Typically legal costs are paid by the other side if your claim is successful (but see below). In the unlikely event that your claim
is not successful then you still pay nothing because our No Win No Fee funding scheme guarantees that we will not charge you anything.
Will I get all my compensation?
Very often yes. However from 1 April 2013 there were quite complicated changes to some of the court rules. This included an increase in some types of compensation which was done so that a claimant can use part of the compensation to pay towards legal fees. Please get in touch with Glassbrooks so we can discuss this with you.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If you have had an accident then you have 3 years from the date of that accident to make a claim. If you were under 18 when the accident
happened then you have until your 21st birthday to make a claim. If you have developed a disease or some other condition through the fault
of someone else then the rules are more complicated. In broad terms you have 3 years from the date you first realised that you had developed
your disease or your condition and at the same time knew or should have known that that disease or condition was caused by someone else's
negligence. The courts have discretion to allow claims to continue even if the 3 year time limit has been exceeded.
I have been the victim of a violent crime. Can I claim?
Yes. If you have been the victim of an assault or other violent criminal act then you are entitled to claim compensation. The amount you can
be awarded is anything from £1,000 - £250,000. If you fail to make a complete recovery compensation can also be claimed for loss of earnings.
The time limit for these claims is usually 2 years from the time of the attack.
