What can I claim for after a serious injury?

A settlement for a serious injury will be calculated based on a number of factors and costs that you have accrued since the incident. Depending on the circumstances and injuries sustained, these include:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Care claims
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Vehicle purchase and/or adaptation costs
  • Alterations to your home or purchase of a new property if required
  • Purchase and installation of specialist equipment
  • Travel expenses
  • Out of pocket expenses (including travel and parking expenses for family and friends visiting hospitalised loved ones)

Serious injury claims – the FAQs

What is the average payout for a personal injury claim?

Each case is based on its merits, dependent on a number of factors which will be assessed throughout your claim.

You can read the details of one recent case we dealt with here or contact us on 0800 988 6288 to discuss your needs with our Serious Injury specialists.

Can I deal with a claim on behalf of an injured family member?

Yes. If your loved one has been seriously injured in an accident which wasn’t their fault, then you can act on their behalf to get the specialist advice, guidance and support you need during a traumatic time.

Can I claim for an accident after 3 years?

Claims for accidents in England and Wales must be made within a three-year time limit, unless under exceptional circumstances. Any attempt to make a claim after three years will see the claim time-barred, and ineligible for a settlement.

Polite, honest, trustworthy, helpful and professional. The people at Winns provided me with an outstanding and impeccable service right from the start. I am glad to have chosen them and can't thank them enough.


Without a doubt recommend this company and especially Matthew, he was always keeping me updated, talking me through what was happening three or four times until I understood. Very friendly staff, and excellent customer service. If I couldn’t get hold of anyone, I always had a call back within five minutes. Thank you again for everything.
