Whether you live in Hampshire or anywhere else in England or Wales, our expert personal injury solicitors will take on your claim and we will arrange a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's panel of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Hampshire or slip or trip, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It must be proven 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.
The lawyer will look at how your claim will relate to these issues.
Advice for those looking for a personal injury solicitor
In many cases a personal injury claim can take months to agree a settlement and in cases of serious injury, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you can rely on at every step of the process to provide both compassionate practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Will I need to instruct a local Hampshire solicitor ?
The location of the firm is less relevant as cases are, as a matter of course, handled remotely.
You will need to select a solicitors' firm with national medical centres as you will almost always need to go to a medical examination.
