Making a personal injury claim
Claims should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in the majority of cases.
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
Whether claiming for a slip, trip or work accident in Corby, making a successful claim has these key elements. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Legal and practical advice will be provided by a short, free consultation with a specialist lawyer.
Finding the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to provide compassionate practical advice and legal guidance.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Find out more here.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For extensive fractures causing serious long term problems, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £63,360 to £105,875 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
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?".
Do you need to choose a local solicitor ?
The whereabouts of the firm is not critical as injury cases can be handled by phone, post and email.
You will need to instruct a law firm that provides medical facilities near you as you will need to go to a medical assessment.
Look into Corby solicitor reviews
Service standards offered by lawyers can vary to a large extent.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can be helpful if you are contemplating which lawyer to go with.
