Whether you are based in Crowborough or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced injury lawyers are able to take on your claim and we will arrange a medical at a centre near you .
Making a claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as RSI are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Beginning your claim sooner should enable the lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
Picking the right lawyer for your compensation claim
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from several months for minor injuries to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA are tasked with regulating legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to trust throughout the claims process to provide both compassionate practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Do you need to select a local injury lawyer ?
Going for a local firm is not particularly important as cases are conducted by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to select a firm that offers national medical centres as Claimants will usually have to attend a medical assessment.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
Look into Crowborough solicitor reviews
Service standards offered by solicitors, as with any service, can vary.
Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can be a good place to start if you are contemplating which solicitor to act for you.
