Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to represent you?
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be agreed. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
Do I need to instruct a local lawyer ?
The location of a law firm is not so critical as cases can be handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should instruct a law firm with national medical centres as Claimants will almost always have to go to a medical assessment.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury 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. Get more information about how much you can claim.
