Making a claim
Injury claims must, in most cases, be made within a three-year window.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Stoneyburn or slip or trip, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
The solicitor will look at how each of these points will relate to your injury claim.

Reviews can be informative if you are considering which lawyer to instruct.
Do you need to select a local lawyer ?
The location of a firm is not especially important as injury cases are normally handled remotely.
However, you should go with a solicitors practice that offers a national network as you will usually have to go to a medical assessment.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Find out more here.
Solicitors working on a No Win, No Fee basis generally charge a success fee and for ATE insurance. Deductions from a Claimant's compensation for a moderate pain disorder, for example, ranges from £17,050 to £31,130 (based on 2015 market data).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
