Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to support individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.
To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated 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.
The solicitor should explain how your claim relates to each of the points.
Choosing the right injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for less serious injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
Do I need to go with a local solicitor ?
The location of a firm is not particularly relevant as cases are usually managed remotely.
However, you should select a solicitors practice that has medical facilities near you as you will usually be expected to go to a medical examination.
