Quittance's national panel of solicitors help Claimants across the country to keep more personal injury compensation with our fairer success fees.
Whether you are based in South Ayrshire or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced solicitors can take on your claim and we will arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Personal injury claims should usually be made within 3 years of an injury.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
To win a South Ayrshire personal injury case, your solicitor 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 sooner will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your iness or injury
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in severe injuries, to be agreed. The SRA regulates all solicitors, but the quality of service does vary.
Given the impact your legal representative can have on your experience of making a claim, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is an important first step.
Are South Ayrshire Claimants restricted to only local personal injury solicitors?
As with many professional services, you do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
In most cases, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For chest injuries, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £10,175 to £14,520 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
You should be aware of how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
