Making a claim
Claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
Extensive legislation is in place to support people planning to make a claim, and our network of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
Whether claiming for a road accident in Cove Bay, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Your lawyer will look at how these issues relates to your claim.
What to consider when picking the right injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from months for minor injuries to potentially years for complex cases. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to give expert legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
The disparity in the level of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees charged by lawyers working on Conditional Fee Agreements is quite significant
E.g. the amount of compensation retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £15,658 for displaced metatarsal fractures can vary from £9,395 to £13,309.

Will I need to select a local lawyer ?
