Making an injury claim
Claims should usually be made within a three-year window.
To win a personal injury case, it must be proven 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.
In all cases, answers and useful advice can be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert lawyer.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be paid. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to people affected by injury, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
Will I have to choose a lawyer near me?
You do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
Medical exams will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national medical network will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.

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 spinal cord damage could vary between £73,700 and £130,130 (based on 2015 market research).
