Making a claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
In most cases, making a successful claim has three key components. 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.
How to choose the best lawyer for your compensation claim
You will be liaising with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for complex cases. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to trust throughout your claim to provide both compassionate practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Do you have to choose a law firm in Law?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
The only element of a personal injury claim that usually will need to be performed locally is the medical. This exam is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Is "how much compensation will I get" the most important question?
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. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Find out more here.
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 severe shoulder injuries could vary between £15,510 and £38,830 (based on 2015 market research).
What should you look for when checking reviews for solicitors in Law?
Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from more casual and friendly to strictly professional. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the quality of service taken by individual firms.
