Making a claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to injured Claimants, and our panel of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
The lawyer will discuss these issues and should explain how they apply to your claim.

What should be considered when checking reviews for solicitors in Kincardine?
Different lawyers adopt many different approaches, from strictly professional to more casual and friendly. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
The diversity in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums between different law firms is an important consideration for Claimants.

Will you need to instruct a local legal firm ?
The location of the solicitor is not especially relevant as injury cases are usually conducted by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to go with a solicitors practice that has national medical coverage as Claimants will usually have to attend a medical exam.
