No matter whether you are based in Bonnyrigg or anywhere in the UK, our experienced injury lawyers will take on your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making an injury claim
Injury claims must usually be made within 3 years of an injury.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's panel of expert lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven 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 importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
In many cases a compensation claim can take several months to complete. In the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not responsible for many factors of interest to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
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. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for a serious wrist injury, for example, ranges from £19,800 to £31,625 (based on 2015 market data).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".

The location of the firm is not especially important as injury cases are, as a matter of course, handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
