Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
In most cases, making a successful claim has these key elements. 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
Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance will be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert lawyer.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your injury?
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from several months for minor injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Your solicitor should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
Will I have to choose a lawyer near me?
Many injury lawyers operate nationwide, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually should be carried out locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
