Making a claim

Powerful legislation is in place to give support to people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
A no-obligation phone consultation with a specialist lawyer will give answers and invaluable guidance.
How to pick the right injury lawyer

With approximately 31 offices within 25 miles of East Dunbartonshire (SRA 2015 figures) - how can you make sure you select the best firm to help you?

Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
