Making a personal injury claim
Compensation claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window.
For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It needs to be shown 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
The solicitor can take you through each of these points and will explain how they apply to your claim.
How to pick the right personal injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for minor injuries to over a year for complex cases. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is an important 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. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for bronchitis could vary between £16,830 and £25,300 (based on 2015 market research).
