Making a claim
Personal injury claims must be made within three years in the majority of cases.
Whether a claim is being made for a work-related illness or road accident, proving an injury claim has three key components. It needs to be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Making your claim as soon as possible will allow your solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from several months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
