Whether you are based in Bracknell or anywhere in the country, our injury lawyers can help with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making an injury claim
Compensation claims must be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.
People with certain illnesses or conditions like noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three components to proving a claim. It needs to be shown that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
The variation in the amount of personal injury success fees and ATE premiums between lawyers working on No Win No Fee agreements is vast
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant awarded £84,623 for extensive fractures causing serious long term problems could conceivably vary from £50,774 to £71,929.
