Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to represent you
Usually a claim for compensation can take several months to complete and for the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA regulate legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not responsible for many factors of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is an important first step.
Will you need a local solicitor ?
Going for a local solicitor is not particularly important as cases now tend to be handled remotely.
It is however necessary to select a law firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will need to go to an independent medical examination.
The diversity in success fees and insurance premiums between different firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is enormous.
As an example the amount of compensation retained by an injured person awarded £24,096 for a moderate pain disorder can range from £14,458 to £20,482.
