Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must, in most cases, be made within three years.
To win a personal injury case, it must be shown 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.
Answers to your questions and practical guidance can be provided by a short, free consultation with a specialist solicitor.
How to find the best personal injury lawyer
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to reach a conclusion. Injury claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to offer practical advice and expert legal guidance.
