Making a claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
For the majority of injury claims, proving a claim involves three components. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
What to think about when choosing the right solicitor
Compensation for a injury claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be settled. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your experience of making a claim, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
Does the location of the law firm matter?
You do not need to instruct a lawyer near you.
For the majority of claims, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
Comparing Pitlochry personal injury solicitors - online reviews
Different lawyers adopt many different approaches, from strictly professional to more casual and friendly. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a great resource to compare the approach and service levels taken by individual firms.
The variation in the amount of insurance premiums and success fees charged by law firms is a material consideration for Claimants.
As an example the amount retained by a successful Claimant awarded £56,379 for very serious leg injuries leaving permanent problems could conceivably vary from £33,827 to £47,922.
