Whether you are based in Doncaster or anywhere in the UK, our expert personal injury lawyers can take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a medical centre near your home.
Making an injury claim
Injury claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Doncaster or slip or trip, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be shown 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.
In all cases, a free phone call with an expert solicitor can provide answers and useful advice.
Finding the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your injury
In most cases a claim can take several months to complete. In cases of serious injury, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is an important first step.
The disparity in the level of personal injury fees charged by law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is an important consideration for Claimants.
As an example the amount retained by a Claimant awarded £4,197 for a broken tibula or fibula can range from £2,518 to £3,567.

Will you need to go with a local Doncaster legal firm ?
The location of the law firm is not so critical as injury cases are run by phone, post and email.
However, you should select a law firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will usually have to attend a medical assessment.
What should you look for when comparing Doncaster solicitor reviews?
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from formal and traditional to more casual and friendly. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the approach and service levels taken by individual firms.
