Making an injury claim

To win a Henfield personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
In all cases, a free phone call with a Henfield personal injury solicitor can give answers and invaluable guidance.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be paid. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to offer practical advice and expert legal guidance.
The contrast in insurance premiums and success fees between lawyers often surprises prospective Claimants.
For instance the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant awarded £12,064 for mild asthma can vary from £7,238 to £10,254.

What should be considered when comparing Henfield solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
Will you need to select a local legal firm ?
The location of a firm is less critical as cases now tend to be conducted by phone and email.
However, you should instruct a solicitors practice that provides medical facilities near you as Claimants will usually have to attend a medical assessment.
