Whether you live in Clowne or anywhere in the UK, we can will take on your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making a claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's panel of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It needs to be shown that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from months for less serious injuries to over a year for complex cases. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, picking an injury lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Will I need to select a local solicitor ?
The location of the solicitor is not so important as cases can be run without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to go with a law firm that provides national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will usually be expected to attend a medical exam.
What should you look for when comparing Clowne solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a great resource to compare the approach and service levels taken by individual firms.
The variation in the amount of success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between different firms is important for Claimants.
As an example the amount retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £7,902 for serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery could conceivably vary from £4,741 to £6,716.

Slip, trip and fall accidents
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) statistics expose the fact that employee slips and trips are, by some degree, the most frequent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in Derbyshire. Slips, trips and falls are frequently the precursor to accidents attributed to other causes e.g. being hit by material under pressure, a carrying injury or an exposure to fire (burn) accident.
