Do I have a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 11, 2016
If you suffered an injury or illness in the last three years, and another party was responsible, our panel of expert solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Your claim must usually be made within three years.
If you have been diagnosed with a long-term illness or medical condition like a repetitive strain injury, you may still able to claim even if the illness's cause occurred years ago.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

Do I need to go with a local West Yorkshire legal firm ?
Choosing a nearby lawyers office is not critical as cases are managed remotely.
However, you should select a solicitors practice that has medical facilities near you as you will usually need to attend a medical assessment.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium.
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?".
