US Accident Assist

Catastrophic Injury Claims

If you've had an accident that has resulted in a serious injury and had a life-changing impact, we can help. You're not alone.

Have you suffered a catastrophic injury?

Suffering an injury can be a shocking and upsetting experience, and we know that this can make almost any injury feel serious.

However, in some cases the injury suffered can be particularly severe and can have a lasting impact on your life and your future. In that case, we would consider you to have suffered a serious or life-changing injury.

If you’re questioning whether or not you’ve suffered a serious injury, the below can help. You might have a suffered a serious of life-changing injury if one or more of the following applies to your situation:

  • You had to undergo lengthy or ongoing treatment
  • Your injury has required long, repeated or ongoing hospital visits
  • You had to take significant time off work

No amount of money can make up for what you’ve been through, but getting compensation can help you to get back to where you were before. If the injury was caused by someone else, we may be able to help you.

Your compensation could help to cover any expenses caused by your injury, including:

  • Any care or support, even if this care was provided by family or friends. This includes mileage driven and time spent to provide care
  • Any loss of amenity, such as an impact on spare time activities such as playing sport
  • Any future loss of income through lost earnings or pension
  • Any effects on work. For example, if your progression at work became impacted by your injury
  • Any future handicap in employment such as a lack of future job opportunities
  • Any welfare costs, such as the cost of adapting your home

We know that it can sometimes be difficult to tell whether or not your injury would be considered serious.

If you have any doubt, our friendly, personal injury advisors are ready to hear your story. You can get in contact on 844 550 0122 for free advice, or fill in our short form to arrange a call back.

There are no obligations when you contact us, but we’ll be able to let you know whether we think you have a claim.

Catastrophic Injury Claim FAQ

Suffering through a serious injury can be traumatic, alienating and physically and emotionally painful. First and foremost, we're sorry you've gone through this injury, no matter the circumstances.

We may not be able to fully understand what you're going through, but we do have 29 years' experience helping people like you make injury claims.

Using our experience, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve not just for the initial impact to your life, health and finances, but also for the impact it's had on your future and your loved ones.

The unexpected impact of a serious injury is likely to be devastating to you and your family and we believe that you should be financial and emotionally supported following such a traumatic experience.

When you contact us for advice, we'll ask you some questions about your injury and accident. We know it may be uncomfortable to tell us about an accident that's left you, or somebody close to you, seriously injured, but having this information helps us understand how we can help you.

To give you an idea of what to expect, during your call it is handy to have a note of:

  • The date when your accident took place (this doesn't need to be exact at this stage)
  • Any medical treatment you've received and the dates of when it took place
  • Any pain you've suffered and are still suffering
  • Any time you've had to take off work
  • Any adaptations you've had to make to your daily life, home and routines


We will also ask you for some information about the impact your injury has had on your loved ones. This is because when your solicitor negotiates your compensation they are able to consider any costs to your loved ones alongside your needs. This includes repaying your loved one for:

  • Any care they gave you because of your accident, even when that care was free
  • Any mileage they've accumulated to help you get about
  • Any time they've taken off work to support you

If, during your call with us, we think we can help you secure compensation for what happened, we'll let you know and ask your permission to pass on your contact details to one of our specialist solicitors. You can say no, and we'll keep your data safe, but if you say yes you'll be taking the next step towards your compensation, and we'll get the ball rolling straight away.

You might be thinking of contacting us because a loved one, friend or somebody close to you has suffered a life-changing personal injury. If that's the case, we can help you too.

We understand that serious injuries can leave the victim unable to make decisions, in considerable pain, and emotionally or physically dependent on you. That's why we can speak to you about making a claim on their behalf.

If you need advice about making a claim or want to start a compensation claim today, please call us for free on 0844 550 0122. Or, you can enter your details in our call back form, and we'll contact you.

If you believe you've suffered a serious injury, we recommend calling us for free, impartial advice on 844 550 0122. That way we'll be able to tell you if we think you have a serious injury claim and save you the hassle of finding the right solicitor for your case.

As serious injuries often have a unique impact on our lives, and the lives of those around us, there is no clear example of what type of accident can cause a serious injury. However, if you've experienced any of the injuries below then it's likely you've been in a serious accident.

  • Head and brain injury
  • Spinal injury
  • Back injury
  • A broken bone or multiple fractures
  • Loss of sight, either temporarily, partially or permanently
  • Amputations or the loss of limb
  • A burn injury
  • Multiple injuries
  • Paralysis, either permanently, temporarily or partially

We've spoken to hundreds of other victims of negligence who have suffered injuries from accidents that weren't their fault. So we know that although the injuries above are often examples of serious injuries, you may in fact be suffering a different type of injury or complication.

For example, you may have had a car, motorcycle or cycling accident that has caused you to need prolonged or repeated medical treatment. Or you may have suffered a fall from height that has meant you're no longer able to travel independently, or perhaps you've suffered an accident at work that now means you're no longer able to work.

Our No Win No Fee Guarantee

No win no fee arrangements take the risk out of making a claim, because you don’t pay anything if you lose your case.

Your solicitor may need to take out special legal protection insurance for you, which pays the costs if your claim fails, and ensures claiming is risk free. The cost of this is only taken if you win your case. You’ll never have to pay anything upfront and there are no hidden charges, so you’ll never be out of pocket.
