Making a personal injury claim
Claims should usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be shown 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.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Compensation for a claim can take months (possibly years in cases of serious injury) to be agreed. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
