Whether you live in March or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced solicitors can assist with your claim and we will always set up a medical at a medical centre near you.
Do I have a injury claim?
If you were injured in an accident in the last 3 years and a third party was responsible, Quittance can assist you with an injury claim.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
A claim must usually be made within 3 years of an injury.
In the majority of cases, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Your solicitor can take you through these issues and should explain how they apply to your claim.Back to top
How much can I claim?
How much compensation you are likely to be awarded is calculated with reference to Judicial College Guidelines. Our injury calculator gives a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.Back to top

When a person suffers injury or illness as the result of the carelessness of a doctor or other health worker, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim. Our specialist panel of injury lawyers can help you make a claim against the hospital or clinic responsible for the injury.
Alternatively, you could follow the NHS complaints procedure if you just want a detailed explanation of what happened as opposed to claiming compensation.
