Have I got a compensation claim?
Updated: September 22, 2016
If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and another party was responsible, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make an injury claim.
Claims for compensation must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
In all cases, answers and useful advice will be provided by a short, free consultation with a personal injury solicitor.Back to top

How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your injury
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to be settled. Claims where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take longer. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they do not regulate many issues of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your legal representative should be someone you can trust throughout your claim to provide legal guidance and practical advice.
Will you need to select a local injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitor is not very relevant as injury cases are conducted without the need to meet the solicitor.
It is however necessary to instruct a firm with national medical centres as Claimants will usually need to go to a medical examination.
