Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support individuals considering a claim, and our panel of lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People with certain illnesses or conditions like asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove 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.
Getting your claim started sooner will allow the solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
Choosing the right personal injury lawyer
Selecting a suitable solicitors' practice for your legal matter is the most important step towards obtaining the highest compensation settlement for your illness or injuries.
How do you make certain you select the best solicitors' practice for your specific circumstances?
