Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must prove:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be settled. The SRA regulate legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to give legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.

Will I have to choose a law firm near me?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In general, the only aspect that should be carried out locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery could vary between £5,060 and £10,725 (based on 2015 market research).
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
