Making a personal injury claim
Claims should usually be made within a 3-year window.
In most cases, making a successful claim has these key elements. It must be proven 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
Your solicitor will consider how the points will relate to your claim.
Finding the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your claim
Identifying the most appropriate legal expert for your legal case is a key step towards negotiating the best compensation settlement for your illness or injuries.
How do you make certain you instruct the ideal company for your needs?
Will I need to go with a local Petersfield lawyer ?
The location of the law firm is not very important as cases are normally run remotely.
It is however necessary to go with a company with a national network as Claimants will usually have to attend a medical examination.
The contrast in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums between firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is significant.
For instance the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant being awarded compensation of £49,284 for leg fractures could vary from £29,570 to £41,891.
