Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of specialist solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
To win a Sale personal injury case, 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 each of these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your needs
Identifying the most appropriate law firm to assist you is the most important step towards securing the highest settlement or award for your accident.
How can you make sure you select the best firm to advise you?
The variation in the level of success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between different law firms can have a significant impact on your compensation.
For example the amount of compensation retained by an injured person having been awarded £37,077 for hip or pelvis fractures needing surgery could vary from £22,246 to £31,515.

Do I need to select a local lawyer ?
Going for a local firm is not very critical as injury cases are usually handled by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to instruct a solicitors practice that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as Claimants will be expected to go to a medical exam.
