Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in the majority of cases.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
In the majority of cases, there are three elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated 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
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Identifying the most suitable PI solicitor to assist you is a key step towards negotiating the highest compensation settlement.
How can you ensure you instruct the most appropriate law firm for your case?
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 neck injuries causing spondylosis, serious limitation of movement or permanent/recurring pain, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £11,110 to £20,185 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
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?".
Do you need a local injury lawyer ?
Going for a local solicitor is not so important as injury cases are normally handled by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to choose a law firm that provides medical facilities near you as you will need to attend a medical examination.
