Key criteria

Compensation claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.

Whether claiming for a road accident in Groby, there are three components to making a successful claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.

Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance can be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with an Groby injury lawyer.

Alternatively, you could make a formal complaint if you only want a formal account of what went wrong as opposed to injury compensation.

Speaking to friends or relatives or reading reviews can be informative when contemplating which solicitor to go with.

Will you need to instruct a local lawyer ?

Choosing a nearby law firm is not very relevant as injury cases are normally run by phone and email.

However, you should choose a solicitors' firm that provides national medical coverage as claimants will have to attend a medical examination.

The disparity in the amount of success fees between different lawyers working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is quite surprising.
