Suffering a serious injury is undoubtedly life-changing for the individual affected. Based in Widnes, Runcorn and St Helens, Forster Dean is a leading personal injury solicitor who specialises in helping clients gain significant payouts for major injuries such as losing a limb and long-term spinal damage.
Types of Serious Injury
A serious injury may not only mean that you have to spend time off work recovering or the effect this can have on your finances. You might also have to adjust to life-changing challenges, not only physically but mentally as well.
Types of injury that we often see at Forster Dean include loss of limbs, spinal injuries and brain damage. These types of injuries are likely to have a huge impact on the individual.
You may be unable to do the same job as you did before because of your disability, for example. You might require extra funds urgently to help with your rehabilitation or for making adjustments to your home. There may be a significant loss of financial security because of your injuries. You may even need counselling to help get over the trauma of the accident.
Should I Make a Claim for Compensation after a Serious Injury?
If you were the victim of a serious injury because of an event that wasn’t your fault, you should be able to claim compensation. A serious injury can occur for a variety of different reasons. Some examples include:
- You were in a road traffic accident where the other driver was negligent in some way or they were under the influence of alcohol.
- You were working on a construction site and proper safety measures weren’t followed which means you suffered a catastrophic injury.
- You were cycling and were hit by a vehicle that was using a cycle lane illegally.
These are just a few instances where individuals can suffer a severe injury that has a catastrophic impact on their life. Some serious injuries leave people having to cope with a disability, other people may find that it’s a long road to full recovery and they need extensive medical support.

If you have been in a serious accident and it wasn’t your fault, then it’s important to contact a solicitor and talk through the potential for making a claim as soon as possible.
