Making an 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 their clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated 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.
The lawyer will discuss these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Usually a compensation claim can take months to agree a settlement and in severe injuries, claims may run for one or two years. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to trust throughout the claims process to provide expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Injury lawyer reviews in Bolsover - What to look for
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before you call, checking personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
Do you need a local Bolsover lawyer ?
The location of the solicitor is not particularly critical as injury cases are run without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should choose a solicitors practice that has national medical centres as Claimants will almost always be expected to go to an independent medical examination.
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 severe toe injuries could vary between £11,110 and £17,050 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
