Making an injury claim

Extensive legislation is in place to give support to individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.

- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Beginning your claim sooner should enable the solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How to choose the best injury lawyer for your claim

The SRA are tasked with regulating legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is a crucial first step.
