Making an injury claim
Injury claims should usually be made within a three-year window.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Getting your claim started sooner will enable supporting evidence and witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
Finding the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Claims for very serious injury or illness can take much longer. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.

You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research).

For mild asthma, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £8,580 to £15,510 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
Will you need a local lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the lawyers office is not particularly critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, run by phone, post and email.
However, you should go with a solicitors practice that provides national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will usually need to attend a medical exam.
