Making a personal injury claim

Considerable legislation exists to support individuals considering a claim, and our panel of expert lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Information and legal advice will be provided by a free phone consultation with a personal injury solicitor.

Will I need to go with a local Prestwick injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitor is not so relevant as cases are run without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should choose a law firm that offers medical facilities near Prestwick as you will almost always need to attend a medical exam.
The contrast in the amount of success fees and ATE premiums charged by firms is significant.
For instance the amount of compensation retained by an injured person awarded £79,507 for serious neck injuries involving fractures or damage to discs could conceivably vary from £47,704 to £67,581.
