Whether you are based in Brundall or anywhere in the UK, our personal injury solicitors can take on your claim and we will always set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It must 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
Making your claim sooner should enable the lawyer to gather evidence and witness statements.
Guidance for potential Claimants looking for a lawyer
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to conclude. Injury claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take longer. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide practical advice and legal guidance.
Will I need to select a local lawyer ?
The location of the firm is not so relevant as injury cases are typically run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to select a company that provides medical facilities near you as you will almost always be expected to go to an independent medical examination.
