Making an injury claim
Claims must be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It needs to be proven 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 lawyer will discuss each of these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be paid. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, however they do not regulate many factors of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to trust at every step of the process to give specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Does the location of the personal injury solicitor matter?
As with many professional services, you do not need to choose a solicitor near you.
Usually, the only aspect that needs a local service provider is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
