Whether you are based in Bingham or anywhere else in the UK, our injury solicitors will assist with your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims should usually be made within 3 years of the injury.
Powerful legislation is in place to give support to injured Claimants, and our network of personal injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
In all cases, answers and invaluable guidance will be offered through a no-obligation phone consultation with an expert lawyer.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your claim
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be settled. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Your lawyer should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide both practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Does the location of the personal injury solicitor matter?
As with many professional services, you do not need to instruct a solicitor near you.
For the majority of claims, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Find out more here.
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 a moderate pain disorder could vary between £17,050 and £31,130 (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.
Solicitor reviews in Bingham - What to consider
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
