Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims should usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
To win a Bridlington personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
In most cases a claim for compensation can take months to agree a settlement and for severe injuries, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are tasked with regulating legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they do not regulate many factors of interest to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
