Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
In the majority of cases, making a successful claim involves three components. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
A short, no-obligation phone consultation with an expert solicitor will provide information and invaluable guidance.
What factors to check when locating the best injury lawyer
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be agreed. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to trust throughout the claims process to provide expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for severe tinnitus, for example, ranges from £23,980 to £36,850 (based on 2015 market data).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
