People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is important.
To win a Sileby personal injury case, your lawyer must prove 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.
Making your claim as soon as possible should enable the solicitor to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.

Will you need to select a local lawyer ?
Going for a local lawyers office is less important as injury cases now tend to be handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should go with a law firm that has national medical centres as Claimants will usually be expected to go to a medical assessment.
The contrast in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums charged by firms is considerable.
