Making a personal injury claim
Powerful legislation exists to support injured people who seek compensation, and our network of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Manningtree or work-related illness, making a successful claim involves three components. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities 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.
Your solicitor should look at how these issues will relate to your case.
Guidance for injured people looking for a personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be settled. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Your lawyer should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to offer practical advice and legal guidance.
Are Manningtree Claimants restricted to only local solicitors?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
