Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims should be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
Powerful legislation is in place to support people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of specialist lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Your lawyer should look at how your injury claim will relate to each of these points.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from months for minor injuries to over a year for complex cases. The SRA regulate strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to provide both legal guidance and practical advice.
Do I need to select a local solicitor ?
The location of the firm is not particularly critical as injury cases are normally handled by phone and email.
However, you should select a company that provides national medical centres as you will have to attend a medical exam.
The variation in the level of personal injury success fees and ATE premiums between different lawyers is significant.
For instance the amount retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £28,332 for vibration white finger affecting causing a change in job could vary from £16,999 to £24,082.
