Quittance's nationwide panel of solicitors help Claimants across the UK retain more of their compensation with our fairer success fees.
Whether you are based in Dollar or anywhere in the country, our injury lawyers can take on your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Personal injury claims must usually be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Dollar, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Making your claim sooner should enable your lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Finding a suitable legal team for your case is your most important step towards getting the highest compensation award for your accident.
With 47 offices within 25 miles of Dollar (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority database), how do you make certain you select the best solicitors' practice to instruct?
Check Dollar solicitor reviews
The levels of service provided by lawyers, as with any service, can differ.
Reading reviews can help build a picture if you are thinking about which lawyer to work with.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for very serious leg injuries leaving permanent problems, for example, ranges from £44,330 to £68,365 (based on 2015 market data).
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?".
Will I have to choose a lawyer near me?
The majority of large firms operate throughout England and Wales, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
For the majority of claims, 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 network of medical professionals.
