Quittance's nationwide panel of solicitors help Claimants throughout the UK to keep more personal injury compensation with our fairer success fees.
Whether you live in Caol or anywhere else in England or Wales, our injury solicitors can help with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Injury claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window.
For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance will be given on a short, no-obligation phone consultation with an injury lawyer.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
In most cases a claim can take several months to complete. In severe injuries, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is vital.
Do I need to instruct a local lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby law firm is not especially critical as cases now tend to be managed remotely.
You will need to select a law firm that provides a national network as Claimants will be expected to attend an independent medical examination.
Look into Caol solicitor reviews
The standards of communication and advice provided by solicitors can differ.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can be a good place to start when weighing up which solicitor to act for you.
The diversity in the level of fees charged by law firms is surprising.
As an example the amount retained by a successful Claimant being awarded compensation of £4,192 for a broken tibula or fibula can vary from £2,515 to £3,563.
