If you live in Crowthorne or anywhere in the UK, our experienced personal injury solicitors are able to handle your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a centre near you .
Making a claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities 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 solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to handle your claim?
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be settled. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is vital.

Officially reported figures underscore the fact that slips and trips are, by a considerable degree, the most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the Berkshire workplace. Slips, trips and falls are typically connected to injuries recorded in a different category e.g. being hit by a moving object or a river drowning accident. Public place compensation claims for injuries such as broken shoulders experienced on spillages are also common with slips having happened on Dukes Ride.
