Making a claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must prove 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.
How to pick the best personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be settled. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.

Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for elbow injuries causing some long term problems could vary between £12,650 and £25,850 (based on 2015 market research).
