Serious Injury Claims
We can help
We have recovered several million pounds of compensation for clients over the years, with the largest individual award obtained for a client to date being £3,275,000. With over 45 years of experience in our team we can help maximise your compensation claim. We can help remove some of the pressure and financial stress and strain by arranging rehabilitation or necessary medical care. Banner Jones pride ourselves on winning over 95% of the cases we take on, so if you need a helping hand and skilled advice regarding making a claim, get in touch today.
Injuries to the brain can be life changing affecting not only those that are injured but often the people around them. They can cause a range of devastating effects from changed personalities to a lack of ability to perform everyday tasks. The team at Banner Jones are here to treat your case with the care and sensitivity you deserve and to ensure that financial worries do not add to the stress of the situation.
As with brain injuries, spinal injuries often require extensive lifestyle modifications, such as disabled access to a home or car, and extensive rehabilitation measures to reduce pain and increase function if possible. Our medical and disability experts understand the importance of support through this terrible time and we’re here to ensure you receive the compensation you need.
Loss of limb
The loss of a limb from an accident can cause severe changes to quality of life. Whatever the cause, losing a limb is a serious injury that will take time to comes to terms with. Losing a limb has not only devastating physical effects, but also affects victims psychologically and financially too. Banner Jones are here to help with the financial burden of medical aids and equipment, rehabilitation and management of psychological side effects.
Loss of life
Claiming compensation on behalf of a loved one after a fatal accident or injury can be an extremely emotionally devastating experience. Compensation can never make up for such tragedy, or replace family members, but Banner Jones are here to fight for you to receive the financial support you may need as a result. Family members and children are often left without a means of income, or lose a significant portion of their income, and we can help to ease the financial burden and ensure this doesn’t add stress and worry to the grieving process.
Making a Claim
If you or a relative has suffered a serious, life-changing injury that wasn’t your fault, you and those around you may be affected financially. Serious or even fatal accidents can require costly changes and adaptation to lifestyle and people can be left without financial support. This is why our specialist solicitors are here to help.
The first step
Through an initial free assessment of your case either by telephone or in person, we can suggest the best course of action and its likely timescale. This may be at our Accident Claim Centre in Chesterfield, at any of our offices, or we can even schedule a visit to your home or wherever is convenient for you.
No win, no fee
In most cases we will pursue compensation claims on a “no win, no fee” basis. However, we will consider all possible methods of funding, including legal expenses insurance, trade union funding and private fee agreements. The chances are that you will be contacted by a claims handler looking to represent you, particularly if your claim has gone through an insurer. They may suggest that you must choose them or their panel solicitor to represent you, however this is not the case, and you are free to select a solicitor of your choice.
What can you claim for?
You will be entitled to claim the compensation you deserve for:
- Pain and suffering
- Travelling and parking costs
- Medication and treatment cost
- Rehabilitation costs
- Costs of lifestyle adaptations such as disabled access to housing or cars
- Past and future loss of earnings, for yourself and any financially dependent family members
- Legal and other fees involved in pursuing your claim
If you have been seriously injured in an accident, we will do everything within our power to ensure you have easy access to additional support and advice on issues such as employment, benefits and welfare rights. We can also consider whether interim payments of compensation may be available to relieve financial pressures and cover immediate expenses. We can also assist by arranging any rehabilitation you may require to help with the recovery process.
