Quittance's nationwide panel of lawyers help injured Claimants across the UK keep more damages.
Whether you are based in Mid Calder or anywhere in the UK, our experienced solicitors are able to handle your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims must, in most cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Extensive legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. It needs to be proven 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.
Answers to your legal questions and invaluable guidance will be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with a specialist lawyer.
Locating the best personal injury lawyer for you
Choosing the most suitable personal injury solicitor for your legal matter is an important step towards successfully claiming the best compensation award for your accident.
How can you make sure you instruct the ideal one to work with?
The difference in fees charged by solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements often surprises Claimants.
For instance the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of £19,276 for elbow injuries causing some long term problems might vary from £11,566 to £16,385.
