Our national network of lawyers help clients throughout the UK retain more injury compensation with our fairer success fees.
No matter whether you are based in Clydebank or anywhere in the country, our injury lawyers can take on your claim and we will always set up a medical at a medical centre near your home.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must be made within a three-year window in the majority of cases.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.
In order to win a Clydebank personal injury case, it must be shown 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 should look at how the points will relate to your case.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
Finding the most appropriate lawyer to assist you is your most important step towards receiving the best compensation award.
With some 31 offices within 25 miles of Clydebank (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority website) - what is the best way to make sure you choose the most appropriate legal practice to help you?
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
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?".
Comparing Clydebank personal injury solicitors - online reviews
Talking to a solicitor about your case is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the approach and service levels offered by different firms.
Will you need a local injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not so important as cases are, as a matter of course, handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to select a law firm that provides national medical coverage as you will almost always have to attend a medical assessment.
