Blackburn Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee

Howard Willis

Panel Solicitor

Updated: Sunday, 31st July 2016

Whether you are based in Blackburn or anywhere in the country, our expert injury solicitors can handle your claim and we will arrange a medical at a medical centre near your home.

Making a claim

Claims should be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in such cases.

To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.

Choosing the right personal injury lawyer for your compensation claim

Instructing the most appropriate solicitor to act for you is a crucial step towards achieving the highest compensation settlement.

With some over 100 offices within 25 miles of Blackburn (according to the SRA database) - how can you make sure you choose the best firm for your specific circumstances?

The disparity in the amount of insurance premiums and success fees charged by firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is considerable.

E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant who was awarded £37,047 for hip or pelvis fractures needing surgery can range from £22,228 to £31,490.

Reviews for solicitors in Blackburn

Speaking to a solicitor is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.

Do you need to choose a local lawyer ?

Choosing a nearby lawyers office is less important as cases now tend to be conducted remotely.

However, you should choose a law firm that has national medical centres as Claimants will have to go to a medical assessment.
