Whether you live in Liverpool or anywhere in the country, our experienced lawyers can take on your claim and we will set up a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Extensive legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and our panel of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Liverpool, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It must be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Getting your claim started sooner should allow the solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your claim
Instructing the best law firm for your case is the most important step towards claiming the highest settlement or award.
What is the best way to make sure you instruct the best solicitors' practice to handle your case?
Do you need a local Liverpool injury lawyer ?
The location of the law firm is not very critical as cases now tend to be handled by phone and email.
You will need to select a law firm that provides national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will usually have to go to a medical examination.
What should be considered when comparing reviews for solicitors in Liverpool?
Speaking to a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a great resource to compare the approach offered by different firms.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For extensive fractures causing serious long term problems, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £63,360 to £105,875 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
