Making a claim
Injury claims should usually be made within a three-year window.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.
To win a Cardenden personal injury case, it must be shown 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.
Your lawyer can take you through these key issues and should explain how they apply to your claim.
Finding the best personal injury solicitor for you
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to have a settlement negotiated. Cases where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take years in some circumstances. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, however they do not regulate many factors that matter to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Will I have to choose a lawyer near me?
As with many professional services, you do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually should be carried out locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
