Making a personal injury claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of lawyers have many years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to win a Irvine personal injury case, it must be proven 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.
Guidance for injured people seeking a personal injury solicitor
In most cases a compensation claim will take some months to reach a conclusion. For the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not responsible for many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is an important 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. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For lung cancer, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £56,650 to £78,650 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
