Making a personal injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our panel of expert lawyers have years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
In order to win a Littleborough personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
Identifying a suitable injury solicitor for your case is a critical step towards obtaining the best settlement or award for your injuries.
With some over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Littleborough (according the SRA), how do you ensure you choose the best company to represent you?
Will I need to choose a local legal firm ?
The location of a lawyers office is not so important as cases now tend to be managed by phone, post and email.
You will need to go with a law firm with national medical coverage as you will be expected to go to a medical assessment.
