Making a claim
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three elements to proving a claim. It needs to be shown 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.
Guidance for injured people seeking a personal injury solicitor
You will be liaising with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for complex cases. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), but the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout your claim to offer specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
The disparity in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums charged by firms is huge.
For instance the amount retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £5,153 for minor eye injuries can range from £3,092 to £4,380.
