Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Finding the best PI lawyer to represent you is an important step towards obtaining the most compensation for your illness or injuries.
How can you ensure you choose the ideal firm to pursue compensation for you?
The disparity in personal injury success fees and ATE premiums between firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is an important consideration for Claimants.
E.g. the amount retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £37,983 for severe, disabling elbow injuries might vary from £22,790 to £32,285.

Do I need to select a local injury lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby solicitors office is not so relevant as injury cases are normally managed by phone, post and email.
You will need to go with a law firm that provides a national network as Claimants will almost always have to attend a medical assessment.
