Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in the majority of cases.
In the majority of cases, there are three components to a successful personal injury claim. It must be shown 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.
Choosing the best personal injury lawyer
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be settled. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by all solicitors, but they do not regulate many factors that matter to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you can trust throughout the claims process to provide both practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
