Making an injury claim
Injury claims must be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.
Whether claiming for a road accident in Bebington or work-related illness, proving a claim involves three components. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance can be provided by a short, free consultation with a Bebington-specialist solicitor.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to represent you?
In most cases a personal injury claim can take several months to complete. For the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Your lawyer should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to offer specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
Will I need to choose a local injury lawyer ?
Going for a local law firm is not particularly critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, run by phone and email.
You will need to select a law firm with national medical coverage as Claimants will usually be expected to attend an independent medical examination.
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.
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
