Can I make a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 13, 2016

Elligibility to make a personal injury claim
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as repetitive strain injuries 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 such circumstances.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown 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.Back to top

Will I need to go with a local lawyer ?
The location of a law firm is not particularly relevant as cases are usually handled by phone, post and email.
It is however necessary to select a law firm with national medical coverage as Claimants will need to attend a medical assessment.
The contrast in the amount of success fees charged by firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is enormous.
As an example the amount of compensation retained by a successful Claimant agreeing on a settlement of ?8,399 for moderate shoulder injuries can range from ?5,039 to ?7,139.
