Whether you are based in Rutherglen or anywhere else in England or Wales, our injury lawyers are able to help with your claim and we will set up a medical report at a medical centre near your home.
Making a claim
Claims for compensation must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in most cases.
Purposeful legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's panel of expert lawyers have years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
To win a Rutherglen personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
The solicitor can take you through these key issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
Choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in serious injury cases, to be paid. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide both specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
Will you need a local legal firm ?
The location of a lawyers office is not particularly important as cases are, as a matter of course, managed remotely.
However, you should choose a company that provides national medical coverage as you will usually be expected to go to a medical assessment.
