Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It needs to be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Beginning your claim as soon as possible will enable your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.

what is the best way to make sure you choose the best one to pursue compensation for you?

For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for severe, disabling elbow injuries could vary between £31,625 and £44,330 (based on 2015 market research).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
