Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in most cases.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.
In most cases, making a successful claim involves three components. It must be shown 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.
Making your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting evidence and witness statements to be collected by the solicitor.
What points to think about when finding the best personal injury solicitor
Selecting the best solicitor for your legal matter is a key step towards successfully claiming the highest compensation award for your accident.
With some over 100 offices within 25 miles of Finedon (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority database), what is the best way to ensure you choose the ideal one to advise you?
Do I need to instruct a local Finedon injury lawyer ?
Going for a local solicitor is less important as injury cases now tend to be run by phone, post and email.
However, you should go with a law firm with medical facilities near Finedon as you will usually be expected to attend a medical exam.
The disparity in the level of fees charged by firms is a material consideration for Claimants.
To illustrate the point, the amount of compensation retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £27,075 for complicated leg fractures could conceivably vary from £16,245 to £23,014.
