What to check when locating the best solicitor
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be agreed. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but service levels can vary.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for lung cancer, for example, ranges from ?56,650 to ?78,650 (based on 2015 market data).
