Making a personal injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's panel of injury solicitors have years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
To win a Warrington personal injury case, it must be proven that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
It can take months for most minor injury claims to conclude. Claims involving serious injury or disputed liability can take longer. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to people considering an injury claim, such as speed or level of service.
Your solicitor should be someone you can rely on throughout your claim to offer expert legal guidance and practical advice.
Do I need to instruct a local Warrington lawyer ?
The location of the firm is not relevant as cases are usually handled by phone, post and email.
However, you should choose a law firm with national medical centres as Claimants will need to go to a medical assessment.

Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for minor achilles tendon injuries could vary between £5,885 and £10,175 (based on 2015 market research).
