Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's panel of personal injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be shown 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.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your accident
It can take months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take years in some circumstances. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to offer practical advice and legal guidance.
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 serious shoulder injuries, for example, ranges from £10,340 to £15,510 (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?".
