Making an injury claim
Claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate 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.
Making your claim as soon as possible will allow your solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Finding the most appropriate injury lawyer for your legal matter is the most important step towards successfully claiming the best settlement or award for your accident.
With approximately 100 offices within a 25 radius of Northwood (according the SRA), what is the best way to make sure you select the most appropriate company to handle your case?
The variation in insurance premiums and success fees between law firms working on No Win No Fee agreements is important for Claimants.
For instance the amount retained by an injured person agreeing on a settlement of £78,294 for a severe foot injury could vary from £46,976 to £66,550.
