Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in most cases, be made within three years.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Beginning your claim as soon as possible will enable statements from witnesses to be gathered by the lawyer.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your claim
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be paid. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
Will I need to select a local Forth solicitor ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is less important as injury cases are typically managed by phone and email.
However, you should select a law firm that offers medical facilities near you as Claimants will be expected to go to a medical exam.
