Making a claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for people seeking compensation, and Quittance's panel of specialist lawyers have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People 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. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Advice for potential Claimants searching for a lawyer
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be paid. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, however the SRA are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is vital.
