Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims must be made within three years of the date of the injury in most cases.
In the majority of cases, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It needs to be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
A short, free call with a Urmston personal injury solicitor will give answers and invaluable guidance.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
In many cases a injury claim will take some months to reach a conclusion. In severe injuries, some claims can take over a year. The SRA are responsible for regulating strictly legal advice given by all solicitors, but they are not responsible for many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
Will I need to select a local Urmston lawyer ?
The location of a law firm is less critical as injury cases are, as a matter of course, handled remotely.
You will need to choose a company with national medical coverage as Claimants will be expected to go to a medical assessment.
