Can I make a claim?
Updated: September 17, 2016
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and a third party owed you a duty of care, we can assist you with a claim for financial compensation.
Eligibility to claim
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.Back to top

Tips for choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your circumstances
In most cases a claim for compensation can take several months to complete. For serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are tasked with regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they do not regulate many factors that matter to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust at every step of the process to provide both legal guidance and practical advice.
The diversity in the level of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between lawyers often surprises Claimants.
As an example the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful Claimant awarded ?12,245 for scarring can range from ?7,347 to ?10,408.

Will you need to choose a local legal firm ?
The location of the solicitors office is not particularly relevant as injury cases are, as a matter of course, run by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to choose a law firm with a national network as you will usually have to attend a medical examination.
