Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within 3 years of the injury in most cases.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
To win a personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for you is critical
Instructing the most suitable personal injury lawyer to help you is your most important step towards receiving the highest settlement or award for your injuries.
With some over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Edenbridge - how do you make certain you instruct the most appropriate law firm for your specific circumstances?
Will I need a local lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitor is not so critical as injury cases are normally run remotely.
However, you should instruct a solicitors practice with medical facilities near you as Claimants will have to go to a medical exam.

The difference in the amount of success fees charged by lawyers often surprises prospective Claimants.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant being awarded compensation of £12,362 for chest injuries can vary from £7,417 to £10,507.
