Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's panel of expert lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like RSI may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Beginning your claim sooner will allow the lawyer to gather evidence and witness statements.
How to pick the best injury lawyer
It can take months for the majority of claims to reach a conclusion. Claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take longer. The SRA regulate legal advice given by solicitors, however the SRA are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people affected by injury, such as speed or level of service.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide practical advice and legal guidance.
Will you need a local injury lawyer ?
The location of a lawyers office is not especially relevant as injury cases are typically handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should instruct a law firm that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will need to go to a medical examination.
