Making a claim

Considerable legislation is in place to give support to injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's panel of injury solicitors have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.

Finding the right personal injury lawyer for your claim

The disparity in the amount of success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between lawyers is an important consideration for Claimants.
