Making a claim
Personal injury claims should be made in 3 years of an injury in most cases.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Starting your claim sooner should enable your solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
What to consider when selecting the right solicitor
Finding a suitable personal injury solicitor to act for you is your most important step towards successfully claiming the highest compensation settlement for your accident.
With some 29 offices within 25 miles of Hamilton (SRA 2015 figures) - how do you make certain you select the ideal legal practice to act for you?
The variation in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums between firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is quite surprising.
