Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to support injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
In the majority of cases, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Starting your claim as soon as possible will allow your lawyer to collect useful supporting evidence.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be paid. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
What should be considered when checking reviews for solicitors in Inverurie?
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from formal and traditional to more casual and friendly. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a useful when contrasting the approach and service levels offered by different firms.
Will I need to choose a local legal firm ?
Choosing a nearby lawyers office is not especially critical as cases are managed remotely.
You will need to instruct a solicitors practice that offers national medical centres as Claimants will almost always need to go to a medical exam.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for loss of smell could vary between £20,185 and £26,620 (based on 2015 market research).
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?".
