Quittance's national panel of solicitors help Claimants across the country retain more damages.
Whether you are based in Lochgelly or anywhere in the country, our expert injury lawyers will take on your claim and we will arrange a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and our panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Your lawyer will explain how each of these points relates to your case.
Locating the best personal injury lawyer for your compensation claim
Identifying a suitable injury lawyer to act for you is your most important step towards claiming the best compensation settlement.
How can you make certain you choose the ideal firm for your specific circumstances?
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
