Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
To win a Kirkconnel personal injury case, your lawyer must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
A short, no-obligation phone call with an expert Kirkconnel solicitor can give answers and invaluable guidance.
Picking the best personal injury lawyer for you
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be agreed. The SRA are tasked with regulating legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not responsible for many factors of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to trust at every step of the process to offer compassionate practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
The disparity in the level of insurance premiums and success fees between different solicitors is surprising.
For instance the amount retained by a Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £36,762 for serious hand injuries can range from £22,057 to £31,248.
