Making a personal injury claim

Personal injury claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.

To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
  • That duty was breached by the Defendant
  • The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

Getting your claim started sooner should enable your solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.

How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your needs?

Identifying a suitable solicitors' practice for your legal case is the most important step towards receiving the highest compensation award for your illness or injuries.

How do you make certain you instruct the ideal legal practice to work with?

Will you need to instruct a local legal firm ?

Going for a local law firm is not particularly relevant as injury cases are typically managed without the need to meet the solicitor.

It is however necessary to choose a law firm that has national medical centres as Claimants will have to go to a medical assessment.

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 severe toe injuries, for example, ranges from £11,110 to £17,050 (based on 2015 market data).
