Making an injury claim
Claims should usually be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to win a Welton personal injury case, it must be shown 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.
Your solicitor can take you through each of these points and should look at how they apply in your case.
How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
It can take several months for most claims to reach a conclusion. Claims for very serious injury or illness can take longer. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your lawyer can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, picking an injury lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
Do I need to go with a local legal firm ?
Going for a local solicitor is less critical as injury cases are normally run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to select a law firm that provides medical facilities near Welton as Claimants will usually be expected to go to a medical examination.

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 mesothelioma could vary between £56,650 and £101,750 (based on 2015 market research).
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
