Making a personal injury claim
Powerful legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's panel of specialist lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as repetitive strain injuries are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Buckie personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Getting your claim started sooner should enable your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
In most cases a claim for compensation can take several months to complete. For severe injuries, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you can trust at every step of the process to provide legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Do you need to choose a local legal firm ?
The location of a lawyers office is not so critical as injury cases are normally conducted remotely.
It is however necessary to instruct a law firm that offers medical facilities near Buckie as Claimants will usually have to go to a medical assessment.
