Making an injury claim
Claims should be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's network of specialist lawyers have many years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be shown 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.
Help for injured people searching for a personal injury solicitor
It can take many months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take longer. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however service levels can vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to give expert legal guidance and practical advice.
The diversity in the amount of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees charged by law firms often surprises Claimants.
To illustrate the point, the amount of financial compensation retained by a Claimant who was awarded £7,935 for serious hand injuries with full or close to full recovery might vary from £4,761 to £6,744.
