If you live in Rushden or anywhere else in England or Wales, our lawyers are able to take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a medical centre near your home.
Making a personal injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of specialist lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
In most cases, there are three elements to proving a claim. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities 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.
The lawyer can take you through each of these key issues and will look at how they apply in your case.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your accident
Finding a suitable personal injury lawyer for your legal case is a crucial step towards getting the highest settlement or award for your illness or injuries.
What is the best way to ensure you select the most appropriate one to represent you?
Do I need to choose a local injury lawyer ?
The location of the lawyers office is not particularly critical as cases are normally conducted remotely.
However, you should instruct a law firm that has national medical centres as you will need to attend a medical exam.
Comparing injury solicitors in Rushden - online reviews
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
The disparity in insurance premiums and success fees charged by firms is vast
For example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person who was awarded £17,882 for loss of taste could vary from £10,729 to £15,199.

Accidents in the workplace
Quittance has handled claims for injured Claimants, from lathe operators to quantity surveyors, to secure financial compensation awards. Accident at work data for the East Northamptonshire local authority are compiled under RIDDOR regulations by the HSE:
|Work accidents in East Northamptonshire Local Authority (RIDAGGR)||2011/12||2012/13||2013/14|
|Machinery related injury||8||8||5|
|Exposed to fire||0||1||0|

Slip and trip injuries
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) figures highlight the fact that slips and trips are the single most common cause of injury at work in Northamptonshire and the UK as a whole. Slips and trips are quite often related to injuries filed under a different category e.g. being hit by an object falling from a ladder or a swimming pool drowning accident. Public place legal claims for injuries such as broken wrists occurring on pavement ice are also quite common with recent falls having occurred on Eaton Walk.
Injury solicitors can help Claimants with claiming work related compensation for industrial injuries that include anything from asbestos related illness to toluene exposure.
