Making a claim
Compensation claims must usually be made within three years of an injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
For most claims, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities 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
What factors to check when selecting the right injury lawyer

Comparing Markinch personal injury solicitors - online reviews
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a great resource to compare the approach and service levels offered by different firms.
Do you need a local Markinch lawyer ?
Going for a local firm is not so relevant as injury cases are, as a matter of course, conducted by phone and email.
However, you should instruct a law firm that offers national medical centres as Claimants will almost always need to go to a medical examination.
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 lung cancer could vary between £56,650 and £78,650 (based on 2015 market research).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
