Do I have a claim?

Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.

For the majority of injury claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

Answers to your questions and practical guidance will be provided by a short, free consultation with a specialist solicitor.

Choosing the right personal injury solicitor for your claim

It can take several months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Matters involving disputed liability or severe injury can take years in some circumstances. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.

Your lawyer should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide both legal guidance and practical advice.

The disparity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums charged by solicitors is important for claimants.

For example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person accepting a settlement of ?9,405 for a fractured femur can range from ?5,643 to ?7,994.
