Whether you are based in Irchester or anywhere in the country, our solicitors will help with your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Claims should be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in the majority of cases.
In most cases, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated 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.
Making your claim as soon as possible should allow the lawyer to collect useful supporting evidence.
Advice for those searching for a personal injury solicitor
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to provide both legal guidance and practical advice.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. 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.
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 injuries from inhaling toxic fumes or smoke could vary between £4,290 and £10,175 (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?".
