Making a personal injury claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
The lawyer will consider how your case will relate to these issues.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Compensation for a compensation claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be agreed. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is vital.
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 wrist fracture, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £2,860 to £3,850 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
