Whether you are based in Rutland or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced injury lawyers are able to take on your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a centre near you .
Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and our panel of personal injury lawyers have many years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Answers to your questions and practical guidance will be offered through a no-obligation phone consultation with an expert lawyer.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
You will be in contact with your lawyer for a long period of time, from several months for minor injuries to over a year for matters involving serious injury. The SRA regulate strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not required to monitor many factors that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide expert legal guidance and practical advice.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For asbestosis, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £12,210 to £85,580 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
Does the location of the lawyer matter?
Many solicitors operate throughout England and Wales, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
Usually, the only aspect that needs a local service provider is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
What should be considered when checking Rutland solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a much better idea of the level of service on offer, and the factors that matter most to you.
