Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must be made in 3 years of an injury in most cases.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. 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
Guidance for those seeking a solicitor
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be agreed. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is vital.
The contrast in the amount of personal injury success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums charged by law firms is an important consideration for Claimants.
For instance the amount of compensation retained by an injured person who was awarded £3,386 for a wrist fracture could vary from £2,032 to £2,878.

Do I need to go with a local solicitor ?
Going for a local firm is not especially important as cases are run remotely.
However, you should choose a law firm that offers a national network as Claimants will almost always be expected to attend a medical assessment.
