Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of personal injury solicitors have years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
In order to win a Irlam personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.

Selecting the most appropriate personal injury solicitor for your case is your most important step towards negotiating the best compensation settlement.

Will you need to select a local Irlam solicitor ?
Going for a local firm is not especially important as injury cases are, as a matter of course, conducted by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a solicitors practice that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually have to go to a medical exam.
