Making an injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
In the majority of cases, making a successful claim has these key elements. It needs to be demonstrated 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
In all cases, answers and invaluable guidance will be offered through a free phone consultation with a personal injury solicitor.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to conclude. Matters involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is an important first step.
What should you consider when comparing reviews for solicitors in Datchet?

The disparity in success fees and insurance premiums charged by solicitors working on CFAs (Conditional Fee Agreement) is an important consideration for Claimants.
E.g. the amount retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £28,336 for vibration white finger affecting causing a change in job could vary from £17,002 to £24,086.
