Making a claim
Personal injury claims should usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Powerful legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and our panel of specialist solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
For most claims, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Beginning your claim sooner should enable the solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your needs?
Instructing the best solicitors' practice to help you is the most important step towards negotiating the best settlement or award for your illness or injuries.
What is the best way to ensure you instruct the best one to take on your case?
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For significant hip or pelvis injuries without serious permanent damage, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £21,505 to £31,625 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
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?".
