Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove 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.
Getting your claim started sooner will enable your solicitor to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your injury?
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be paid. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Your lawyer should be someone you can trust at every step of the process to provide legal guidance and practical advice.
Do I need to instruct a local legal firm ?
The location of the firm is less relevant as cases now tend to be handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a law firm with a national network as you will usually be expected to go to a medical exam.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £5,060 to £10,725 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
