Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Chigwell personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate 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.
Making your claim as soon as possible should enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.

With approximately 100 offices within 25 miles of Chigwell (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority 2015 database) - how do you make sure you instruct the best solicitors' practice to pursue compensation for you?

Will I need to choose a local legal firm ?
Going for a local solicitor is not very relevant as injury cases are usually run by phone and email.
You will need to go with a company that offers national medical coverage as you will need to attend a medical assessment.
