Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should usually be made within a three-year window.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as industrial deafness 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 of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be proven that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
What to consider when picking the best solicitor
Selecting the most appropriate personal injury lawyer for your case is an important step towards achieving the best compensation award for your injuries.
How do you ensure you choose the best firm to pursue compensation for you?
Will you need to choose a local legal firm ?
The location of the firm is not especially important as cases are handled remotely.
You will need to instruct a company that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually be expected to go to a medical exam.
The variation in the amount of fees between different law firms is enormous.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant awarded £19,263 for elbow injuries causing some long term problems could conceivably vary from £11,558 to £16,374.
