No matter whether you are based in Desborough or anywhere else in England or Wales, our expert solicitors are able to take on your claim and we will set up a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident or work-related illness, 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, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your circumstances
Selecting the best injury solicitor for your legal case is your most important step towards successfully claiming the highest settlement or award for your illness or injuries.
With approximately 100 offices within 25 miles of Desborough - what is the best way to make certain you instruct the best firm to help you?
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For mild asthma, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £8,580 to £15,510 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
