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 people planning to make a claim, and our network of expert lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- 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
Beginning your claim sooner will allow the solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.

Speaking to a solicitor is an easy way to identify whether they are a good fit. Before picking up the phone, looking up personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.

The whereabouts of the solicitor is less important as injury cases are handled remotely.
It is however necessary to choose a firm that offers a national network as you will almost always need to attend a medical assessment.
The contrast in the level of success fees charged by law firms is enormous.
