Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to support individuals considering a claim, and our network of personal injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
In all cases, a brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert solicitor will provide information and invaluable guidance.
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be agreed. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.

The location of a firm is not especially critical as injury cases are handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
