Making a claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years.
In the majority of cases, there are three key components to proving a 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
Legal and practical advice will be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with an Midlothian injury lawyer.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in cases of serious injury, to be paid. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
Does the location of the law firm matter?
You do not need to choose a law firm near you.
Medicals will usually need to be conducted locally. Quittance's national medical network will assist with this critical stage of the claims process.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For a serious wrist injury, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £19,800 to £31,625 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
