Making a personal injury claim
Compensation claims must usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Considerable legislation is in place to support individuals considering a claim, and our panel of injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
A short, free consultation with an expert solicitor will give information and useful advice.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
It can take months for the majority of claims to have a settlement negotiated. Cases where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take much longer. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is vital.
Will I need to choose a local Bilston solicitor ?
The location of a solicitor is not so relevant as injury cases are, as a matter of course, conducted remotely.
You will need to select a law firm that offers national medical coverage as Claimants will need to attend a medical exam.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for moderate complex regional pain syndrome could vary between £22,660 and £42,460 (based on 2015 market research).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
