Are Kimberley Claimants restricted to only local lawyers?
You do not need to choose a lawyer near you.
Usually, the only aspect that needs a local service provider is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
