Making a claim

To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach

What is the best way to make sure you instruct the most appropriate legal practice to work with?
Will you need to select a local lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby law firm is not relevant as injury cases are usually handled by phone and email.
You will need to instruct a law firm that has a national network as you will be expected to attend a medical exam.
