Making a claim
Extensive legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of personal injury solicitors have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is important.
For the majority of injury claims, proving a claim has three key components. It must be proven 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 can take you through each of these key issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your claim?
Selecting the most suitable PI solicitor to represent you is a key step towards securing the most compensation.
What is the best way to ensure you select the ideal one for your specific circumstances?
Will you need a local legal firm ?
Going for a local solicitors office is not relevant as injury cases now tend to be run without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should go with a law firm that provides medical facilities near you as you will be expected to go to a medical assessment.
The variation in the amount of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees charged by firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is a material consideration for Claimants.
For example the amount retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £101,926 for spinal cord damage could vary from £61,156 to £86,637.
