Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Extensive legislation is in place to support injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of specialist lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to clients on the likelihood of success.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove 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.
Beginning your claim as soon as possible should enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
Guidance for those seeking a solicitor
Selecting the most appropriate lawyer to act for you is a key step towards successfully claiming the most compensation.
With over 100 offices within a 25 radius of Warlingham (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority website), what is the best way to make certain you instruct the most appropriate firm to advise you?
The difference in the level of personal injury success fees and insurance premiums between lawyers is enormous.
