Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of expert solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Devon personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance can be offered through a free phone consultation with a Devon personal injury solicitor.
What to think about when locating the right injury lawyer
Choosing the most appropriate solicitor for your legal matter is a critical step towards getting the best compensation settlement for your injuries.
With over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Devon (according to the SRA website), how can you make certain you choose the ideal law firm to instruct?
The contrast in the amount of success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between different solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is a material consideration for Claimants.
As an example the amount retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £49,265 for leg fractures could vary from £29,559 to £41,875.
