Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of an injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
For most claims, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It must be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Your solicitor will consider how the points will relate to your case.
Guidance for those seeking a lawyer
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is an important first step.

It is however necessary to instruct a law firm that has medical facilities near Bridge Of Earn as Claimants will need to attend an independent medical examination.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for serious hand injuries could vary between £23,430 and £50,050 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
