Making a claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's panel of expert lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
To win a Oundle personal injury case, it must be shown 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.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your iness or injury?
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from many months for less serious injuries to potentially years for complex cases. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
Do I need to instruct a local legal firm ?
Choosing a nearby solicitor is less critical as cases are typically conducted remotely.
It is however necessary to instruct a company that offers medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always have to go to a medical examination.
