Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims should, in most cases, be made within three years of an injury.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Getting your claim started sooner will enable your solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your accident?
It can take many months for the majority of claims to have a settlement negotiated. Injury claims where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take much longer. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is an important first step.
