Updated: Monday, 1st August 2016

Whether you live in Islington or anywhere in the country, our experienced personal injury solicitors are able to take on your claim and we will arrange a medical at a local medical centre.

Making a claim

Claims for compensation must be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in the majority of cases.

For most claims, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities 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

In all cases, a short, free call with a Islington-specialist solicitor can give answers and advice.

How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?

Instructing the most suitable solicitor to represent you is your most important step towards receiving the best compensation award.

With some over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Islington (SRA 2015 figures) - what is the best way to make certain you instruct the most appropriate solicitors' practice to work with?

Do I need to go with a local Islington lawyer ?

The location of a lawyers office is not particularly important as injury cases are, as a matter of course, handled without the need to meet the solicitor.

However, you should select a firm with national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will have to go to a medical exam.

What should you consider when checking Islington solicitor reviews?

Speaking to a solicitor is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.

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?".
