Making an injury claim
Claims must usually be made within 3 years of the injury.
Whether claiming for a slip, trip or work accident in Addiebrownhill, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Choosing the best personal injury lawyer for you
In many cases a compensation claim can take months to agree a settlement. For serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to trust at every step of the process to provide both legal guidance and practical advice.
Will I need to go with a local injury lawyer ?
The location of a solicitor is not so relevant as cases are normally run without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to choose a law firm with national medical centres as you will be expected to go to a medical exam.
