Making a claim
Personal injury claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of an injury.
For most claims, there are three components to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated 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.
The solicitor can take you through each of these points and should look at how they apply in your case.
What factors to check when picking the best personal injury lawyer
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to conclude. Cases involving disputed liability or severe injury can take longer. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but the quality of service does vary.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to give specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
Do you need a local solicitor ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not particularly relevant as injury cases are normally run by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to choose a law firm with medical facilities near you as you will usually need to go to a medical exam.
