Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Inverbervie or slip or trip, there are three elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated 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.
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for you is critical for your needs
You will be liaising with your solicitor for a long period of time, from months for less serious injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for minor eye injuries, for example, ranges from £3,190 to £7,040 (based on 2015 market data).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
