Making a claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and our panel of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In most cases, there are three elements to proving a claim. It needs to 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
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your claim
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be paid. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to provide both practical advice and legal guidance.
