Making a personal injury claim
Powerful legislation is in place to give support to injured Claimants, and our network of expert solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in these cases.
For most claims, proving a claim has these key elements. It must be proven that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
In all cases, a brief, no-obligation consultation with an expert solicitor will give information and useful advice.
How do you choose the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer to handle your claim?
Usually a injury claim can take several months to complete. In serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to give expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Do you have to choose a solicitor in Wadhurst?
You do not need to instruct a lawyer near you.
In general, the only aspect that will need to be performed locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
The difference in personal injury fees between lawyers often surprises prospective Claimants.
For example the amount retained by a successful Claimant being awarded compensation of £12,251 for scarring could conceivably vary from £7,351 to £10,413.
