Making a personal injury claim
Compensation claims must be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
Powerful legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and Quittance's panel of specialist lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Starting your claim sooner will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to handle your claim?
It can take many months for most claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims involving serious injury or disputed liability can take years in some circumstances. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to give practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for emphysema, for example, ranges from £44,275 to £56,650 (based on 2015 market data).
