Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Auchterarder or work-related illness, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Your solicitor should consider how your injury claim will relate to each of the points.
Guidance for potential Claimants looking for a lawyer
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for complex cases. The SRA regulate strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust at every step of the process to provide specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Do I need to instruct a local injury lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby lawyers office is not particularly important as cases are normally run remotely.
However, you should select a law firm that provides national medical centres as you will almost always be expected to attend an independent medical examination.

The diversity in the amount of success fees between law firms is significant.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £4,346 for a severe thumb dislocation can vary from £2,608 to £3,694.
