Our national network of lawyers help personal injury Claimants across the UK to keep more compensation.
Whether you are based in Caldercruix or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced personal injury lawyers will handle your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and our panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
In most cases, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Getting your claim started sooner will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
Locating the right injury lawyer
It can take several months for the majority of claims to conclude. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take much longer. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is an important first step.
Are Caldercruix Claimants restricted to only local solicitors?
As with many professional services, you do not need to choose a solicitor near you.
Medicals will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national network of medical professionals will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
