No matter whether you live in Fallin or anywhere else in England or Wales, our expert personal injury lawyers are able to take on your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a medical centre near your home.
Making a claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to injured people who seek compensation, and our network of injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
For the majority of injury claims, proving a claim has these key elements. It must be shown 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
Your solicitor will discuss each of these key issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
How to find the best lawyer
It can take many months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Matters involving serious injury or disputed liability can take longer. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is an important first step.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that should be carried out 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 network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The variation in the amount of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees charged by lawyers working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is surprising.
For instance the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £6,079 for a minor head injury could conceivably vary from £3,647 to £5,167.
