Do I have a compensation claim?
Updated: September 13, 2016
If you were injured in the last 3 years and a third party was to blame, our panel of award-winning solicitors can assist you with a claim.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
For most claims, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It needs to be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will allow your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.Back to top

The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your accident
Compensation for a claim for compensation can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be settled. The SRA regulate the legal advice given by all solicitors, however they are not responsible for many issues that matter to people considering an injury claim, such as communication or speed.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for very serious thumb injuries could vary between ?15,840 and ?28,325 (based on 2015 market research).
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?".
Will you need to choose a local Worthing injury lawyer ?
Going for a local law firm is not very important as injury cases are usually run by phone and email.
