Making an injury claim

Whether compensation is being claimed for a work-related illness in Lochgilphead or road accident, there are three components to proving a claim. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Starting your claim as soon as possible should enable your lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
You will be liaising with your lawyer for a long period of time, from several months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulate legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to give specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
The difference in personal injury insurance premiums and success fees between different solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is enormous.
For instance the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant awarded £3,379 for a wrist fracture could conceivably vary from £2,027 to £2,872.
