Making a personal injury claim
Claims should be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
In most cases, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Getting your claim started sooner will enable evidence and witness statements to be gathered in support of your claim by the lawyer.
What factors to consider when choosing the right solicitor
It can take several months for most claims to reach a settlement. Cases for very serious injury or illness can take longer. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is vital.
