- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
A short, no-obligation phone consultation with a specialist solicitor can give answers and advice.
Finding the best solicitor
In most cases a injury claim will take some months to reach a conclusion and for serious injury cases, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Your lawyer should be someone you can rely on at every step of the process to offer compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
Do I need to choose a local lawyer ?
The location of the solicitors office is not so critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a law firm that offers medical facilities near Bagshot as Claimants will usually be expected to go to a medical exam.
The variation in the amount of insurance premiums and success fees between different law firms working on No Win No Fee agreements is an important consideration for Claimants.
For example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person who was awarded £55,194 for severe complex regional pain syndrome can range from £33,116 to £46,914.
