Making a claim
Claims should usually be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
In most cases, proving an injury claim will involve three issues. It needs to be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
What points to check when choosing the right solicitor
You will be liaising with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to give legal guidance and practical advice.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Find out more here.
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
