Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and our network of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Beginning your claim sooner should allow your solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.
Advice for those seeking an injury lawyer
It can take months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Matters where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take years in some circumstances. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to provide both compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
The variation in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between different law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) can have a significant impact on your compensation.
As an example the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant who was awarded £93,926 for severe leg injuries can range from £56,355 to £79,837.
