Making a claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to injured Claimants, and our network of expert lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Clackmannan or work-related illness, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Finding the best solicitor for your claim
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that meets your needs is an important first step.

You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For serious neck injuries involving fractures or damage to discs, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £53,075 to £105,875 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
Many solicitors operate nationwide, 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 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.
