Making a claim
Extensive legislation is in place to support individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Ilkley or work-related illness, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
What factors to consider when finding the right personal injury lawyer
Identifying the most appropriate legal representation to represent you is a critical step towards getting the best compensation award for your injuries.
With over 100 solicitors offices within 25 miles of Ilkley - what is the best way to make sure you choose the most appropriate law firm to handle your case?
The variation in personal injury success fees and ATE premiums between lawyers working on CFAs (Conditional Fee Agreement) is quite significant
To illustrate the point, the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant having been awarded £18,225 for work-related upper limb disorders could vary from £10,935 to £15,491.

Are Ilkley Claimants restricted to only local law firms?
