Making a claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and our network of expert lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated 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 can take you through each of these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to have a settlement negotiated. Claims involving disputed liability or severe injury can take much longer. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not responsible for many factors that matter to Claimants, such as communication or speed.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to offer compassionate practical advice and legal guidance.
The diversity in the level of success fees and insurance premiums between different solicitors is important for Claimants.
To illustrate the point, the amount retained by a Claimant agreeing on a settlement of £27,209 for severe shoulder injuries can range from £16,325 to £23,128.

Will I need to instruct a local legal firm ?
Choosing a nearby firm is not important as cases can be handled remotely.
It is however necessary to select a law firm that provides medical facilities near you as Claimants will almost always need to attend a medical examination.
