  • That duty was breached by the Defendant
  • The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

Picking the right lawyer for your compensation claim

You will be liaising with your legal representative for a long period of time, from months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.

Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.

The disparity in success fees and insurance premiums between solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements is an important consideration for Claimants.

For instance the amount retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £93,934 for severe leg injuries could conceivably vary from £56,360 to £79,843.
