Making a claim
Powerful legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
For most claims, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must 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.
Your lawyer can take you through each of these key points and should look at how they apply in your case.
Locating the best personal injury solicitor

What should you consider when checking reviews for solicitors in Grays?
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 much better idea of the level of service on offer, and the factors that matter most to you.
Do you need to instruct a local Grays legal firm ?
Going for a local law firm is not so critical as injury cases now tend to be run without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to go with a company with national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually be expected to attend a medical examination.

The diversity in the amount of success fees between firms working on No Win No Fee agreements often surprises Claimants.
As an example the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £81,005 for deafness could conceivably vary from £48,603 to £68,854.
