Making a personal injury claim

Injury claims must usually be made within three years.

Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Darvel or slip or trip, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must be proven that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

The solicitor can take you through each of these points and should look at how they apply in your case.

Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for you is critical

Identifying a suitable solicitor for your legal case is a key step towards securing the highest compensation award for your accident.

With approximately 30 offices within 25 miles of Darvel, what is the best way to make certain you instruct the ideal law firm to help you?

The disparity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums charged by law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is surprising.

For example the amount retained by a Claimant who was awarded £3,366 for a wrist fracture could conceivably vary from £2,020 to £2,861.

Does the location of the solicitor matter?

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 most cases, the only aspect that will need to be performed 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 medical network.

Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
