Whether you live in Bradford or anywhere in the UK, our expert solicitors are able to assist with your claim and we will always set up a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
In all cases, a free phone call with a personal injury solicitor can give answers and invaluable guidance.
How to choose the right personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Cases where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take much longer. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide legal guidance and practical advice.
Will I need to instruct a local Bradford legal firm ?
Going for a local solicitor is not especially relevant as injury cases now tend to be handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should instruct a company with national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will usually need to attend an independent medical examination.
The variation in fees between firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is surprising.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person agreeing on a settlement of £37,048 for hip or pelvis fractures needing surgery might vary from £22,229 to £31,490.
What should you consider when comparing reviews for solicitors in Bradford?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a useful when contrasting the quality of service taken by individual firms.
