Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within a three-year window.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Your solicitor should consider how these issues will relate to your injury claim.
Advice for those seeking a personal injury solicitor
In many cases a claim for compensation can take months to agree a settlement and in the most serious claims, some claims can take over a year. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is vital.
Comparing injury solicitors in Ceredigion - online reviews
Discussing you claim with a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the approach offered by different firms.
Are Ceredigion Claimants restricted to only local personal injury solicitors?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that should be carried out locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for bronchitis, for example, ranges from £16,830 to £25,300 (based on 2015 market data).
