Making an injury claim
Injury claims should usually be made within three years.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
In most cases, there are three components to proving a claim. It must be shown that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

It can take months for the majority of claims to be settled. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take years in some circumstances. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is vital.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.

Are Arlesey Claimants restricted to only local law firms?
As with many professional services, you do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
In most cases, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
