Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to people seeking compensation, and Quittance's panel of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
The solicitor can take you through each of these points and will explain how they apply to your claim.
Picking the best personal injury solicitor
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for less serious injuries to over a year for complex cases. The SRA are tasked with regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.

Will you need to choose a local Lenzie legal firm ?
The location of the firm is less important as cases are usually handled by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to select a firm with a national network as you will have to attend a medical assessment.
The contrast in personal injury success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between law firms often surprises prospective Claimants.
For example the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £65,748 for a serious back injury could vary from £39,449 to £55,886.
