Making an injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within a three-year window.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like 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, your lawyer must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
A brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert solicitor can provide answers and advice.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your circumstances
Choosing the most suitable personal injury lawyer for your case is the most important step towards securing the highest compensation award for your injuries.
How do you ensure you select the best company to help you?
The contrast in the amount of fees between firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is surprising.
For instance the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant who was awarded £7,913 for serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery can vary from £4,748 to £6,726.
Will I need to go with a local injury lawyer ?
The location of a lawyers office is not very relevant as cases are typically conducted by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a law firm with medical facilities near Hunstanton as Claimants will almost always need to attend a medical assessment.
