Internal injury compensation

Injuries that affect the internal organs often have the biggest impact on the quality of your life and in some instances impact your life expectancy.

Internal injuries to the organs tend to be caused by either industrial diseases or medical error and misdiagnosis. Injuries can affect the lungs, kidneys, bowel, bladder, spleen and reproductive organs.

Our team of medical negligence and personal injury solicitors are specialists in internal injury compensation. They have over 25 years’ experience of handling claims and cases involving people who have experienced internal injuries.

The value of your claim is reliant on a variety of factors; these are very individual to you and your circumstances. When assessing the value of your claim your injuries, the impact on your life and any financial impact both now and in the future are all considerations.

No win no fee injury claims

The majority of our medical negligence and personal injury claims are handled on a no win no fee basis, or a conditional fee agreement to use its technical term. This means there is no financial risk to you. 

The first step in starting your claim for compensation is to call our team or email us to tell us about your internal injury. We need to know which organs have been affected or damaged and how you got the injuries, is it an asbestos related disease or a trauma caused by a late diagnosis for example.

If your injuries were caused in an accident we’ll need to know if anyone else was involved or witnessed the incident. Most importantly, we’ll need to know how the trauma has affected your life in the short term and the outlook for your future, have you needed additional help, care or rehabilitation to go about your daily life.

Based on the information you give us our team of expert solicitors will be able to make an assessment of your claim. We can tell you how likely it will be that your claim is successful and the estimated value of your claim based on your injuries, pain and suffering and any financial loss.

When you’re dealing with internal injuries to the organs caused by either medical negligence or personal injury it is important to choose an expert solicitor who deals with these complex and emotionally challenging cases on a daily basis. A solicitor experienced in this field will be able to assess and work your case to ensure you receive the compensation rightfully yours. Your compensation should cover your lifetime needs.

Time limits

Internal injuries and trauma to the organs like all medical negligence and personal injury cases have strict time limits on making a claim, this is usually three years. It is therefore important that you seek immediate legal advice from an expert as soon as you are aware of an issue.

Our team

Our team of solicitors is led by a recognised expert in medical negligence and personal injury, Jeanette Whyman. Jeanette is accredited by both the Law Society and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. She was described by a client in Chambers 2015 as “first class and lovely to deal with” so you can feel assured you’re in professional and compassionate hands. 

Jeanette is regularly quoted in articles about the NHS, medical negligence cases and personal injury. Her medical negligence cases are often featured in the national press.

Jeanette and her team have helped hundreds of people who have suffered from internal injuries and trauma from industrial diseases, accidents and medical negligence recover compensation for their injuries.

We work with a pool of investigators and medical experts to help secure your case. They help us to build a successful case for you looking at your medical reports and injuries, the likely cost of any medical treatment you have needed or may need in the future. Also taken into account are things such as care, rehabilitation, equipment and in some cases accommodation and travel expenses.

By their very nature internal injuries or cases where there has been trauma to the organs can take longer to complete than a less serious compensation claim. It is however important to ensure you receive all the compensation you are entitled to.
