Making an injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
Whether claiming for a work-related illness in Faringdon or road accident, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Answers and both practical and legal advice will be given on a short, no-obligation phone consultation with an expert Faringdon solicitor.
How to choose the best personal injury solicitor for you
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be settled. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not responsible for many issues of interest to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to give specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Look into Faringdon solicitor reviews
Service levels provided by injury lawyers, as with any professional service, can vary a great deal.
Researching online reviews is a great place to start when contemplating which solicitor to instruct.
Will you need to select a local injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the firm is not relevant as injury cases are normally conducted remotely.
However, you should select a company that offers national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will almost always have to go to a medical assessment.
