Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
In the majority of cases, proving an injury claim will involve three issues. It needs to be demonstrated 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 as soon as possible will enable the solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to handle your claim
Finding the most suitable PI solicitor to act for you is a critical step towards securing the best compensation award for your illness or injuries.
With 31 offices within 25 miles of Cumbernauld (according the Solicitors Regulation Authority 2015) - how do you make certain you instruct the best law firm to represent you?
Do you need to select a local Cumbernauld injury lawyer ?
The location of a solicitors office is less relevant as injury cases are typically run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to go with a law firm that offers a national network as Claimants will have to go to an independent medical examination.
The disparity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between different firms often surprises Claimants.
For example the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant awarded £25,944 for serious foot injuries could conceivably vary from £15,566 to £22,052.
