Have I got a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 26, 2016
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, our panel of expert solicitors can help you make a claim for financial compensation.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claims should usually be made within three years of the date of the injury.
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.Back to top

Medical negligence in Welton
When a person sustains an injury or illness due to the lack of care of a registrar, nurse or other health worker, it may be possible to claim compensation for medical negligence. If you have been injured by clinical negligence, Quittance can help you make a claim against the NHS hospital or clinic that was at fault.
If you just want answers instead of injury compensation, you can raise a formal complaint. For example, you can write to Beech House, Witham Park, Waterside South, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, to go through the NHS complaints procedure against Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust.

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.

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?".
