Making a personal injury claim
Claims should be made within 3 years of the injury in most cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- 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 supporting witness statements to be collected by the lawyer.
How to pick the right solicitor
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. The SRA regulate legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not responsible for many issues of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.

It is however necessary to choose a law firm that offers medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always have to go to a medical assessment.
The disparity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between firms working on CFAs (Conditional Fee Agreement) often surprises Claimants.
