Making a claim
Personal injury claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
In the majority of cases, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It needs to be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
A free phone call with an expert Boston lawyer can give answers and invaluable guidance.
How to pick the right personal injury solicitor
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for minor injuries to over a year for complex cases. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that meets your needs is vital.
Will I need to choose a local Boston lawyer ?
Going for a local firm is not very relevant as injury cases are typically run by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a company that offers national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually need to go to an independent medical examination.
Comparing Boston personal injury solicitors - online reviews
Discussing you claim with a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
The variation in the level of success fees charged by lawyers can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For example the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant having been awarded £80,993 for deafness can vary from £48,596 to £68,844.
