Making an injury claim
Claims should be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in the majority of cases.
Extensive legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
In most cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Getting your claim started sooner will allow your lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
How to choose the right lawyer
In many cases a compensation claim will take some months to reach a conclusion. For serious injury cases, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are tasked with regulating the legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many factors of interest to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life and your recovery, picking an injury lawyer to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Do you need to select a local Redbridge legal firm ?
The location of a solicitors office is not very critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, managed by phone, post and email.
You will need to instruct a law firm that offers a national network as Claimants will almost always need to go to a medical assessment.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for a severe pain disorder could vary between £34,100 and £50,930 (based on 2015 market research).
