Making a personal injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In the majority of cases, there are three components to proving a claim. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Answers to your questions and practical guidance can be offered through a no-obligation phone consultation with an expert Buntingford solicitor.
Picking the best personal injury solicitor
You will be liaising with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for minor injuries to potentially years for complex cases. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.

The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
Do you need to instruct a local Buntingford legal firm ?
The location of a solicitors office is not very important as injury cases are, as a matter of course, managed by phone, post and email.
However, you should instruct a company with national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will have to attend a medical exam.
