Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients on 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 where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
Whether claiming for a road accident or work-related illness, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Finding the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for the majority of claims to reach a conclusion. Matters involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to trust throughout the claims process to provide both practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Are Brownhills Claimants restricted to only local lawyers?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
For the majority of claims, the only aspect that does require a local service 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 network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
What should be considered when comparing Brownhills solicitor reviews?
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from sympathetic to strictly professional. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
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 mild asthma, for example, ranges from £8,580 to £15,510 (based on 2015 market data).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
