Whether you live in Staines or anywhere else in the UK, our lawyers will manage your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a medical centre near you.
Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our panel of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated 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.
A brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert solicitor will provide answers and useful advice.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your claim?
You will be liaising with your lawyer for a long period of time, from many months for minor and moderate injury to over a year for complex cases. The SRA are tasked with regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to Claimants, such as quality of service or speed of communication.
Considering the effect your lawyer can have on your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is vital.
Do you need to choose a local lawyer ?
Going for a local law firm is less critical as injury cases now tend to be handled remotely.
You will need to choose a law firm that provides national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will usually need to attend a medical assessment.
