Quittance's national network of lawyers help clients throughout the UK retain more compensation with our fairer success fees.
If you live in Bargeddie or anywhere else in England or Wales, our expert personal injury lawyers can take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and our panel of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
In order to win a Bargeddie personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Answers and both practical and legal advice can be provided by a short, free consultation with an injury lawyer.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
You will be liaising with your solicitor for a long period of time, from many months for less serious injuries to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues of interest to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Your solicitor should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
As with many professional services, you do not need to choose a lawyer near you.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually needs a local service provider is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The diversity in the amount of insurance premiums and success fees between different law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is significant.
E.g. the amount of compensation retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £12,927 for serious shoulder injuries can vary from £7,756 to £10,988.
