Compensation Claims for Multiple Injuries & Major Trauma Solicitors
A Multiple Injury Claim is the legal process of claiming compensation for complex and multiple injuries through major trauma caused by an accident.
Unfortunately, serious accidents seldom result in singular injuries.
More often than not the victim suffers multiple injuries simultaneously, and in some cases further issues, directly attributable to the original accident, can appear at a later date.
Here at Sheldon Davidson we have experience of pursuing financial compensation claims for all types of accidents.

What is a Multiple Injury Claim?
If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation as financial recompense for the pain and suffering you have endured as well as any direct financial losses you have incurred.
Unfortunately, a serious accident can lead to several injuries. In fact, almost any type of accident can result in multiple injuries of varying severity. Sometimes the full extent of the injuries does not become clear until much later on.
When we talk about multiple injuries in terms of a personal injury claim, we're referring to injuries or illnesses of any kind involving different parts of the body, but were caused by the same accident.
For example, someone who has been involved in a serious car accident may suffer with a leg injury, whiplash and cuts and bruises to the arms and head. These are different types of injury, caused by the same accident so would therefore be considered part of a multiple injury compensation claim.
Examples of serious, multiple injuries sustained during a serious accident could be:
- Neurological (brain) Injuries
- Orthopaedic Injuries (Limb fractures)
- Musculoskeletal Injuries
- Maxillofacial Injuries
- Internal Organ Injuries
- Psychological Injuries
A person with multiple injuries is likely to take longer to recover, need different types of treatment, and may need to see different doctors. This will clearly have an impact on their life, their families' lives and the costs involved.
When calculating the value of a claim, the full impact of all the injuries and the wider consequences will be considered by the personal injury lawyer.
What types of accidents can lead to a Multiple Injury Claim?
Unfortunately, many types of accidents can cause multiple injuries. Claims for complex injury compensation can arise from any event that leads to an injury which can be blamed on a third party who owed you a reasonable duty of care.
Accidents that we have supported claimants with, and lead to multiple injuries include:
If you have been injured in any type of accident that has left you with multiple injuries, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Our Multiple Injury and Major Trauma Solicitors have years of experience providing bespoke legal advice to claimants who have suffered multiple injuries through no fault of their own.
Are Multiple Injury Claims complex?
A person's ability to sustain and recover from multiple injuries is dependent on many factors including age, overall health and any existing medical conditions. In a scenario where the patient has suffered multiple injuries, their treatment needs can be complex and require careful management to ensure the best chance of recovery. It is likely that the patient will need to see different specialist Doctors for different types of injury and the recovery programme for each injury will likely be different.
This can mean that the road to recovery is long, which can have a significant impact on the patient themselves and also family members, who may be reliant on earnings the patient is no longer able to provide. It may also be that one or more family members are forced to work less, in order to provide care and support for the patient and as a result their earning potential is also impacted. This would be for consideration when valuing a claim for financial compensation.
How much compensation can I get for multiple injuries?
As with any case where financial compensation is sought, the main consideration will be to compare the life of the victim and their immediate family before and after the accident. In making this comparison our lawyers will seek to steer the court to settle on a figure which is commensurate with all costs incurred, any financial losses and expected future costs directly attributable to the accident and injuries suffered. The amount of compensation you can claim for multiple injuries is divided in general damages and special damages.
The main items for consideration would likely be:
- Loss of earnings (to include the victim and any family members who provide care)
- Medical costs
- Modifications to the home and transport (modified car for example)
- On-going care provision
- Any equipment required to enhance independent living
The above list is not exhaustive, as each case is unique and complex. This is where the right lawyer can make all the difference. At Sheldon Davidson we are extremely well versed on building claims of this nature for clients across the Greater Manchester region and we have much success in this field.
