Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within three years.
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and our panel of personal injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
To win a Ellon personal injury case, it should be demonstrated 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.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Selecting the best legal team to represent you is your most important step towards negotiating the best settlement or award for your accident.
With 19 offices within 25 miles of Ellon (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority database) - how can you make sure you instruct the ideal one to work with?
Does the choice of solicitor affect the compensation I will get?
The amount of general damages awarded is set out by the Judicial College. Certainly the experience of the solicitor can be a factor in achieving a greater amount of compensation, but compensation is constrained by these guidelines.
The compensation you keep can vary considerably depending on your choice of firm (2015 research). If you win a No Win, No Fee claim, you will be charged ATE insurance and a success fee by your solicitor. For serious shoulder injuries, for example, general damages vary from £10,340 to £15,510 depending on this success fee.
Are Ellon Claimants restricted to only local personal injury solicitors?
You do not need to pick a solicitor near you.
Usually, the only aspect that will need to be performed locally 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 medical network.
