Making a claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and our panel of injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In the majority of cases, there are three components to proving a claim. It must be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Guidance for injured people seeking an injury lawyer
It can take several months for the majority of claims to reach a conclusion. Matters involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your recovery, picking an injury lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
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 moderate shoulder injuries could vary between £6,380 and £10,340 (based on 2015 market research).
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
Will you need a local injury lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby firm is not particularly important as cases are, as a matter of course, handled by phone and email.
However, you should select a law firm with national medical centres as you will usually need to go to a medical examination.
