If you live in Enfield or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced personal injury solicitors are able to manage your claim and we will always set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making a claim
Claims should be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.
For most claims, making a successful claim has three key components. It needs to be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Getting your claim started sooner should enable the solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
Help for potential Claimants searching for a solicitor
In most cases a claim for compensation can take months to agree a settlement and for the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to provide expert legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Do you need to select a local legal firm ?
The location of the solicitor is not relevant as injury cases now tend to be handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should instruct a law firm with medical facilities near you as you will almost always be expected to attend a medical assessment.
