Whether you are based in Brough or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced personal injury solicitors will help with your claim and we will always arrange a medical report at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Powerful legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and our panel of expert lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as RSI are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
In order to win a Brough personal injury case, it must be proven that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
What points to check when choosing the right personal injury solicitor
Instructing the best personal injury lawyer to represent you is a key step towards negotiating the highest compensation settlement for your accident.
How can you make sure you instruct the ideal firm for your needs?
Will you need to instruct a local legal firm ?
Going for a local law firm is not critical as cases are typically handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
It is however necessary to select a solicitors' firm that has a national network as you will almost always have to go to a medical exam.
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. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. 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 bronchitis could vary between £16,830 and £25,300 (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?".
