Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Hucknall, there are three elements to proving a 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.
What to check when choosing the right personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be settled. The SRA are tasked with regulating the legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many factors of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to offer legal guidance and practical advice.
Will I need a local Hucknall injury lawyer ?
The location of a law firm is not very relevant as cases are conducted by phone, post and email.
You will need to instruct a company that offers medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always have to attend a medical assessment.
The difference in the level of success fees between different solicitors working on No Win No Fee agreements is quite surprising.
