Making an injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the likelihood of success.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
For most claims, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It must be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
A no-obligation phone consultation with an expert lawyer will provide answers and advice.
What to check when selecting the right solicitor
It can take several months for the majority of claims to have a settlement negotiated. Cases for very serious injury or illness can take years in some circumstances. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is vital.
The diversity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between different firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is an important consideration for Claimants.
To illustrate the point, the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant who was awarded £37,070 for hip or pelvis fractures needing surgery could conceivably vary from £22,242 to £31,509.
