Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.

Whether claiming for a work-related illness in Mablethorpe or road accident, proving a claim has three key components. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Starting your claim as soon as possible should allow the lawyer to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
Picking the right personal injury solicitor for your claim
It can take several months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims involving serious injury or disputed liability can take much longer. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is vital.
Will I need to instruct a local solicitor ?
Going for a local solicitor is not critical as cases are conducted remotely.
It is however necessary to instruct a solicitors' firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will almost always have to attend a medical examination.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for a serious back injury could vary between £59,950 and £71,500 (based on 2015 market research).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
