Whether you are based in Marlow or anywhere in the country, our expert injury lawyers will assist with your claim and we will arrange a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Compensation claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.
Powerful legislation is in place to support injured people who seek compensation, and our network of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
In most cases, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
What issues to check when locating the best personal injury lawyer
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from many months for minor injuries to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, however the SRA are not responsible for many issues of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to provide compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.

Are Marlow Claimants restricted to only local personal injury 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.
