Making a claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and our network of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor 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.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
In many cases a personal injury claim can take several months to complete. In cases of serious injury, some claims can take over a year. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on at every step of the process to give expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Do you need a local solicitor ?
The location of a lawyers office is less important as injury cases are normally handled by phone and email.
You will need to go with a law firm with medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always need to go to a medical assessment.
