Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
If you were injured in the last 3 years and a third party was to blame, Quittance's panel of solicitors can assist you with a claim.
Elligibility to make a personal injury claim
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is important.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
The solicitor will discuss these issues and should look at how they apply in your case.Back to top

Guidance for injured people seeking a personal injury solicitor
Compensation for a claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be agreed. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by solicitors, but they are not responsible for many issues of interest to claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to provide legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
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 deafness could vary between ?73,315 and ?88,660 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
