Whether you live in Bedworth or anywhere in the country, our expert personal injury lawyers are able to manage your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a centre near you .
Making a claim
Claims must be made within three years of an injury in most cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has three key components. It must be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
A short, free call with an injury lawyer will provide information and invaluable guidance.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your claim
Identifying the best law firm to represent you is a key step towards claiming the most compensation for your injuries.
How do you ensure you instruct the ideal legal practice to pursue compensation for you?
Does the location of the lawyer matter?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
Medical exams will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national medical network will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
The disparity in the level of fees charged by solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements is surprising.
E.g. the amount retained by a successful Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £84,621 for extensive fractures causing serious long term problems could vary from £50,772 to £71,927.

Bedworth No Win, No Fee Expert Lawyers
Solicitors handling Bedworth injury claims mostly conduct the legal work on a Conditional Fee Agreement, or CFA.
The CFA prevents the lawyer from charging any legal fees if the case is lost.
A 'success fee' will be charged by Bedworth solicitors that work under a No Win, No Fee agreement. Unlike standard fees, the 'success fee' is paid out of your compensation award and is usually 25%.
Will there be hidden fees?
Quittance's specialist injury solicitors ensure No Win, No Fee means the injured party shall not have to pay any of your lawyer's legal fees should you do not win.
