No matter whether you live in Brent or anywhere in the UK, our expert lawyers will take on your claim and we will set up a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Personal injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of an injury.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It must be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Choosing the best personal injury solicitor
Instructing the best solicitors' practice to act for you is the most important step towards successfully claiming the best compensation award.
With approximately 100 offices within 25 miles of Brent (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority website) - how do you make sure you choose the ideal firm for your needs?
Do I need a local Brent injury lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby solicitor is less critical as injury cases can be run by phone, post and email.
You will need to instruct a firm with a national network as you will have to go to an independent medical examination.
What should you consider when checking reviews for solicitors in Brent?
Discussing you claim with a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
The diversity in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between lawyers is significant.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant who was awarded £78,270 for a severe foot injury can range from £46,962 to £66,530.
