If you are based in Market Deeping or anywhere in the UK, our injury solicitors are able to take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Personal injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Your solicitor can take you through each of these points and will explain how they apply to your claim.
Help for injured people looking for a solicitor
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be settled. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is vital.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. 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.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for loss of taste, for example, ranges from £15,510 to £20,185 (based on 2015 market data).
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?".
Are Market Deeping Claimants restricted to only local law firms?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
For the majority of claims, 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 network of medical professionals.
