Whether you are based in Hessle or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced injury solicitors will handle your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a local medical centre.

Making a personal injury claim

Considerable legislation exists to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's panel of injury lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.

Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.

Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident or work-related illness, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be demonstrated that:

  • the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
  • the duty of care was breached
  • this breach caused your illness or injury

In all cases, answers and useful advice can be offered through a free phone consultation with an expert Hessle solicitor.

Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.

Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for serious arm injuries, for example, ranges from £31,625 to £48,400 (based on 2015 market data).

The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".

Will I need to choose a local Hessle injury lawyer ?

The location of a solicitors office is not very critical as injury cases can be run without the need to meet the solicitor.

However, you should select a law firm that offers medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always be expected to go to a medical exam.
