Making an injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that matters.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable the solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.

Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is vital.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
