Making an injury claim
Powerful legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and our panel of personal injury solicitors have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in such cases.
Whether claiming for a road accident or work-related illness, making a successful claim has three key components. It needs to be proven 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
In all cases, a short, free consultation with an Bromley injury lawyer can provide information and invaluable guidance.

Do I need to select a local legal firm ?
The location of a law firm is not especially critical as cases can be managed remotely.
However, you should choose a solicitors' firm that has medical facilities near Bromley as Claimants will almost always have to go to a medical assessment.
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 tinnitus could vary between £23,980 and £36,850 (based on 2015 market research).
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
