Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and our network of injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in such circumstances.
In most cases, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be demonstrated 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
Your lawyer should look at how your claim relates to each of these points.
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Identifying the best legal team for your legal matter is an important step towards securing the highest compensation settlement.
With 31 offices within a 25 radius of Wemyss Bay (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority 2015 database) - how do you make sure you choose the most appropriate company for your case?
Are Wemyss Bay Claimants restricted to only local lawyers?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In general, the only aspect that does require a local service 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 network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The contrast in insurance premiums and success fees between law firms working on CFAs (Conditional Fee Agreement) is important for Claimants.
As an example the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £12,252 for scarring can vary from £7,351 to £10,414.
