Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
For the majority of injury claims, proving a claim involves three components. It must be proven 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
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Usually a personal injury claim can take several months to complete. For the most serious claims, claims may run for one or two years. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to offer compassionate practical advice and legal guidance.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for serious foot injuries, for example, ranges from £20,185 to £31,680 (based on 2015 market data).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
Do you need to select a local lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby law firm is less critical as cases are usually run by phone, post and email.
You will need to choose a solicitors practice that has medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always be expected to attend a medical assessment.
