Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should usually be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
People with certain illnesses or conditions like RSI are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Chapelhall personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate 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.
Your solicitor will discuss each of these key points and should look at how they apply in your case.
Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for the majority of claims to conclude. Claims 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 solicitors, however they are not responsible for many factors of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is an important first step.
Does the location of the personal injury solicitor matter?
Many solicitors operate across the country, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
In general, the only aspect that does require a local service 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 network of medical professionals.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
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 significant hip or pelvis injuries without serious permanent damage could vary between £21,505 and £31,625 (based on 2015 market research).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
