Quittance's nationwide network of injury lawyers help Claimants throughout England and Wales keep more of their settlement or damages with our fairer success fees.
Whether you live in Motherwell or anywhere else in England or Wales, our expert personal injury lawyers are able to help with your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our panel of injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim has these key elements. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
The solicitor will look at how your claim will relate to these issues.
Choosing the right solicitor
Instructing the most appropriate PI solicitor to assist you is an important step towards securing the best compensation settlement.
With some 29 offices within 25 miles of Motherwell (according the SRA), what is the best way to make sure you choose the most appropriate company for your needs?
Do you need to choose a local Motherwell solicitor ?
Going for a local firm is not very important as injury cases are normally handled by phone and email.
However, you should go with a law firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will have to go to a medical exam.
Personal injury solicitor reviews in Motherwell - What to consider
Speaking to a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Personal injury solicitor reviews are a great resource to compare the quality of service offered by different firms.
The difference in the amount of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between different solicitors working on Conditional Fee Agreements is quite surprising.
To illustrate the point, the amount retained by a Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £15,675 for displaced metatarsal fractures could conceivably vary from £9,405 to £13,323.
