If you live in Conisbrough or anywhere in the country, our personal injury solicitors will take on your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Conisbrough personal injury case, it must be proven 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.
The solicitor can take you through each of these key points and should look at how they apply in your case.
Choosing the right solicitor
It can take several months for most claims to have a settlement negotiated. Claims involving serious injury or disputed liability can take years in some circumstances. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by all solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is an important first step.
The diversity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between law firms working on No Win No Fee agreements can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For example the amount retained by an injured person who was awarded £17,858 for loss of taste can range from £10,715 to £15,179.
Are Conisbrough Claimants restricted to only local law firms?
Many injury lawyers operate throughout England and Wales, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually should be carried out locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
