Making a claim
Compensation claims should be made within a 3-year window in most cases.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Snodland or slip or trip, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Your solicitor can take you through these issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to handle your claim?
Finding the most suitable solicitor for your case is your most important step towards negotiating the best settlement or award.
With over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Snodland - what is the best way to ensure you choose the most appropriate company to handle your case?
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for loss of hearing in one ear could vary between £25,300 and £36,850 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
What should be considered when checking reviews for solicitors in Snodland?
