Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims must usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Considerable legislation exists to support individuals considering a claim, and our network of expert solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor 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
In all cases, answers and useful advice will be provided by a short, free consultation with a specialist solicitor.
Choosing the right personal injury solicitor
You will be liaising with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for complex cases. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they do not regulate many factors of interest to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for severe wrist injuries causing loss of function of the wrist could vary between £38,500 and £48,400 (based on 2015 market research).
Are Droylsden Claimants restricted to only local solicitors?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that should be carried out 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 medical network.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
