No matter whether you live in Brixworth or anywhere else in the UK, our injury solicitors are able to take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must usually be made within three years of the date of the injury.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
The lawyer should look at how your claim will relate to these issues.
How to find the right personal injury solicitor for your claim
Instructing a suitable personal injury lawyer to act for you is an important step towards negotiating the highest settlement or award.
How can you ensure you choose the most appropriate legal practice to advise you?
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for severe complex regional pain syndrome could vary between £42,460 and £67,925 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
