Whether you are based in Kidsgrove or anywhere in the UK, our personal injury lawyers will take on your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
Purposeful legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our panel of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
In order to win a Kidsgrove personal injury case, it must be shown that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
The solicitor can take you through each of these key issues and should explain how they apply to your claim.
How to choose the right personal injury lawyer for your claim
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for minor injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial 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. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for wrist injuries causing permanent pain and stiffness, for example, ranges from £10,175 to £19,800 (based on 2015 market data).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
As with many professional services, you do not need to pick a law firm near you.
Medicals will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national medical network will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
