Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for people seeking compensation, and our network of specialist solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the likelihood of success.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In order to win a Brighton personal injury case, it must be shown 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.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to be settled. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take much longer. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide both specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.

Will I need to select a local Brighton injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not very important as injury cases now tend to be handled remotely.
It is however necessary to select a law firm that offers national medical coverage as Claimants will usually be expected to attend a medical exam.
The diversity in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums charged by solicitors working on No Win No Fee agreements can have a significant impact on your compensation.
To illustrate the point, the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant being awarded compensation of £8,035 for minor achilles tendon injuries can vary from £4,821 to £6,830.
