Quittance's nationwide network of lawyers help Claimants across the country to retain more compensation with our fairer success fees.
Whether you live in Peterculter or anywhere in the UK, our expert injury lawyers will take on your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a centre near you .
Making a personal injury claim
Claims should be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in the majority of cases.
For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
In all cases, a brief, no-obligation call with a personal injury solicitor will give answers and invaluable guidance.
What issues to check when finding the right injury lawyer
It can take many months for most claims to reach a conclusion. Claims where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take years in some circumstances. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, choosing a lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.
The disparity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between different firms often surprises Claimants.
As an example the amount of compensation retained by an injured person awarded £12,076 for mild asthma could vary from £7,246 to £10,265.
