Making a claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim involves three 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.
Your lawyer should look at how each of these points will relate to your injury claim.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
You will be liaising with your solicitor for a long period of time, from months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for complex cases. The SRA regulate legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is a crucial first step.
