Whether you are based in Horbury or anywhere else in the UK, our personal injury lawyers will help with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Horbury or work-related illness, there are three components to a successful personal injury claim. It needs to be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
The solicitor can take you through each of these issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your injury
