Quittance's national network of lawyers help Claimants across the UK to retain more personal injury compensation with our fairer success fees.
If you live in Glasgow or anywhere else in the UK, our personal injury lawyers will manage your claim and we will set up a medical at a local medical centre.
Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation should be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
The solicitor will look at how your injury claim relates to the points.
What to consider when picking the best solicitor
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be paid. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Solicitor reviews in Glasgow - What to consider
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for severe leg injuries, for example, ranges from £77,825 to £110,000 (based on 2015 market data).
Will you need to choose a local solicitor ?
Going for a local law firm is less important as injury cases can be handled remotely.
You will need to select a solicitors' firm that offers national medical coverage as Claimants will usually be expected to go to a medical exam.
