Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation must be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in the majority of cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove 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.
The solicitor will look at how each of these points relates to your injury claim.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your injury?
Identifying a suitable legal representation for your legal case is an important step towards receiving the highest settlement or award.
With approximately 100 offices within a 25 radius of Staffordshire (according the Solicitors Regulation Authority 2015) - how can you ensure you select the best firm to act for you?
Will you need a local lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the lawyers office is not relevant as injury cases are run by phone, post and email.
You will need to go with a solicitors practice that has national medical centres as you will usually need to attend a medical examination.

The disparity in the amount of fees between different law firms often surprises Claimants.
E.g. the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant who was awarded £49,290 for leg fractures can vary from £29,574 to £41,896.
