Making a personal injury claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your claim
Finding the best solicitors' practice to assist you is a crucial step towards getting the most compensation.
With approximately 100 offices within 25 miles of Morley (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority database) - how can you ensure you choose the most appropriate legal practice to represent you?
Are Morley Claimants restricted to only local personal injury solicitors?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
Usually, the only aspect that should be carried out locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
