Getting the best possible compensation payment for a personal injury means using the expert services of a personal injury claims company. So which are the best?

If you have suffered a personal injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. In some cases it is possible to make the claim yourself, but it can be a difficult and time-consuming process. Many people turn to the expertise of an experienced personal injury claims company so they have the best chance of success.

Personal injury claims are usually subject to a three-year period from when the accident happened; exemptions to this rule are illnesses or diseases caused by exposure to toxic elements that took a long time to develop, such as asbestosis. In such cases, the clock on claims starts from the time a person was diagnosed with their condition. When you want to go about making a claim, it is important to act quickly or you may lose out.

The most common types of personal injury claims in the UK today are for road traffic accidents; injuries at work, including stress-induced psychological conditions; medical negligence; slips, trips and falls in public places, such as a shop; illness or psychological trauma resulting from workplace harassment or discrimination; and others.

Rule of Law

In England and Wales, all personal injury claims companies are subjected to strict regulation. The Financial Conduct Authority regulates companies handling personal injury claims, mis-sold financial products (such as PPI claims); employment and redundancy; criminal injury; industrial injury; and housing disrepair.

Some of the best personal injury claims companies in the UK today are able to swiftly, efficiently and cost-effectively deal with claims as they come in. This is thanks to the development in recent years of claims management software that gives them a major advantage in handling high volumes of claims.

Here are some of the leading personal injury claims companies operating in the UK:
