Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of injury lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
The solicitor should look at how your claim relates to these issues.
Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor to handle your claim
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, but they are not responsible for many factors that matter to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on throughout your claim to provide both compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.
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 hand injuries with full or close to full recovery, for example, ranges from £5,060 to £10,725 (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?".
Will you need to go with a local solicitor ?
Choosing a nearby law firm is not especially relevant as injury cases are, as a matter of course, handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should choose a solicitors practice with national medical coverage as Claimants will usually need to go to a medical examination.
What should you consider when comparing reviews for solicitors in Polbeth?
