Making a claim
Injury claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has three key components. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
The solicitor will explain how your injury claim relates to each of the points.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your accident
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take years in some circumstances. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Are Galston Claimants restricted to only local law firms?
You do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
Usually, the only aspect that will need to be performed locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Galston personal injury solicitor reviews
Levels of service provided by lawyers, as with any service, can vary enormously.
Online reviews can certainly be revealing when deciding which solicitor to instruct.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
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 mesothelioma could vary between £56,650 and £101,750 (based on 2015 market research).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
