Making an injury claim
Powerful legislation exists to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's network of expert lawyers have years of experience advising clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
Whether claiming for a road accident or work-related illness, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Information and legal advice can be provided by a short, free consultation with a Pershore personal injury solicitor.
How to find the best solicitor for your compensation claim
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from months for minor injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial first step.
The diversity in success fees and insurance premiums charged by solicitors is quite significant
For example the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £79,216 for mesothelioma can vary from £47,529 to £67,333.
