Whether you live in Radstock or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced personal injury solicitors can take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Claims for compensation must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in most cases.
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's panel of injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
In the majority of cases, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Choosing the best personal injury solicitor for your case is your most important step towards claiming the highest compensation award for your accident.
How can you make certain you choose the best firm to take on your case?
The variation in the level of insurance premiums and success fees between different lawyers is surprising.
For example the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £8,667 for a fractured index finger could conceivably vary from £5,200 to £7,367.
