Making an injury claim

People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as RSI may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven 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.
Information and legal advice will be provided by a short, free consultation with a specialist lawyer.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your accident
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from many months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for complex cases. The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues that matter to people affected by injury, such as communication or speed.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is vital.
