Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
In order to win a Brixham personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
The lawyer will consider how your claim will relate to each of these points.
Choosing the best personal injury solicitor
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to provide compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
Will I have to choose a personal injury solicitor near me?
Many solicitors operate nationwide, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
In general, the only aspect that needs a local service provider is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
