Making a personal injury claim
Powerful legislation is in place to support individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of personal injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that matters.
To win a Flintshire personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
What issues to consider when picking the best personal injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to over a year for complex cases. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.

Will I need to choose a local Flintshire solicitor ?
The location of a lawyers office is less relevant as injury cases are, as a matter of course, managed remotely.
It is however necessary to go with a solicitors' firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will almost always be expected to go to a medical examination.
The variation in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums charged by law firms is surprising.
For example the amount of compensation retained by a Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £36,755 for serious hand injuries could conceivably vary from £22,053 to £31,242.
