Making a claim

Making your claim sooner will enable supporting evidence and witness statements to be collected by your solicitor.
What issues to check when finding the best personal injury solicitor
Usually a compensation claim can take months to agree a settlement. In severe injuries, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to provide both practical advice and legal guidance.
The difference in the amount of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees between lawyers working on No Win No Fee agreements can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For example the amount retained by an injured person agreeing on a settlement of £133,929 for severe tinnitus might vary from £80,357 to £113,840.
