Whether you live in Bloxwich or anywhere else in England or Wales, our solicitors are able to handle your claim and we will always set up a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.
For most claims, proving a claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your iness or injury
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Claims for very serious injury or illness can take much longer. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide both practical advice and expert legal guidance.
Do I need to choose a local lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the firm is not particularly relevant as injury cases can be run remotely.
It is however necessary to instruct a solicitors practice that offers national medical coverage as Claimants will have to go to a medical assessment.
The variation in the level of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between different law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is enormous.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £7,897 for serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery can vary from £4,738 to £6,712.
