Making a personal injury claim
Compensation claims should be made within three years of an injury in most cases.
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Your lawyer should explain how your case relates to these issues.
How to select the best lawyer for you
You will be liaising with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for less serious injuries to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they do not regulate many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, picking an injury lawyer to fit your requirements is a crucial first step.
Are Conwy Claimants restricted to only local lawyers?
As with many professional services, you do not need to pick a law firm near you.
Medical exams will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national medical network will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The diversity in fees between lawyers often surprises Claimants.
E.g. the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £21,075 for bronchitis might vary from £12,645 to £17,914.
