Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Claims for personal injury compensation must, in most cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.

For most claims, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be shown 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.

In all cases, a brief, no-obligation consultation with an Kirriemuir injury lawyer can give answers and invaluable guidance.

Slip and trip injuries

Reported data indicate that employee slips and trips are by some margin the most common cause of accidents leading to injury in the workplace. They are often the initiators of injuries classified under another heading such as being hit by an object falling from a machine or a harmful substance accident. Public place litigation for injuries like facial scarring experienced on potholes are also quite prevalent with recent slips having occurred on Main Rd and on High Street.

Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your claim

You will be liaising with your solicitor for a long period of time, from months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.

Given the impact your solicitor can have on your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.

Speaking to a solicitor is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.

The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".

Will you need to choose a local Kirriemuir injury lawyer ?

The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not particularly important as injury cases are typically handled without the need to meet the solicitor.

It is however necessary to choose a solicitors' firm with national medical coverage as claimants will usually be expected to attend a medical examination.
