Quittance's nationwide panel of solicitors help clients across the UK to retain more personal injury compensation.
No matter whether you live in Dundee or anywhere else in England or Wales, our injury lawyers will handle your claim and we will arrange a medical at a local medical centre.
Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
For most claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. It needs to be proven 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 can be provided by a free phone consultation with a specialist lawyer.
How to select the right injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from many months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to give expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Do I need to choose a local Dundee legal firm ?
The location of a lawyers office is not especially important as injury cases are, as a matter of course, managed without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to go with a firm that provides national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually have to go to a medical exam.
Injury lawyer reviews in Dundee - Tips for comparing firms
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
The contrast in success fees and insurance premiums between different lawyers can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For example the amount retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £81,001 for deafness can range from £48,600 to £68,850.
