Whether you live in Bushey or anywhere else in England or Wales, our personal injury solicitors are able to manage your claim and we will arrange a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Claims should usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
To win a Bushey personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
A free phone consultation with a Bushey personal injury solicitor can give answers and advice.
How to choose the best personal injury lawyer for you
In most cases a claim for compensation will take some months to reach a conclusion and for serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are tasked with regulating legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide both expert legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Will I need to choose a local solicitor ?
Going for a local solicitor is not relevant as cases are typically handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to select a solicitors practice with a national network as Claimants will have to go to a medical exam.
The contrast in insurance premiums and success fees between law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is quite surprising.
As an example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person who was awarded £42,521 for a severe pain disorder can vary from £25,513 to £36,143.

Were the compensation claim to be won, the costs for your solicitor must be covered by the losing side. If your injury claim is not won, a No Win, No Fee agreement with your lawyer confirms that their fees will not be charged.
A 'success fee' will be charged by solicitors who work under a No Win, No Fee agreement (also called a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA). This fee is taken from the Claimant's award and is generally 25 percent.
