Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of specialist lawyers have years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma 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 is important.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It needs to be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Making your claim sooner should enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your circumstances
Usually a injury claim can take several months to complete and in serious injury cases, claims may run for one or two years. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is vital.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for moderate complex regional pain syndrome could vary between £22,660 and £42,460 (based on 2015 market research).
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
Will you need to instruct a local Fraserburgh solicitor ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not very relevant as injury cases are managed by phone, post and email.
However, you should go with a company that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will have to attend a medical assessment.
