Every claim is different and will depend on its circumstances. Please contact us via telephone or email and we will discuss whether you have a claim that will succeed.
Every claim is different, a straightforward case can be settled within a few months of instructing us, however a more serious case could take longer. We can guarantee however that we will deal with your claim as quickly as possible and also ensure that you receive the correct amount of compensation for your injury.
Please note that as of the 1st April 2013 the government has changed the rules governing personal injury and clinical negligence claims.
Whilst we are happy to deal with your claim by way of a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee) these changes mean that you are no longer able to recover all of your legal costs from your Opponent and for this reason we may need to deduct up to 25% from your damages to cover these costs.
The government has ordered that there be a 10% increase in the amount you are awarded in respect of your pain, suffering and loss of amenity so as to reduce the amount of money that will have to be deducted from your compensation.
In addition, we may need to take out an insurance premium to protect you against unrecoverable disbursements and costs.
The law gives you 3 years from the date of the accident to pursue a claim. There are however exceptions to this 3 year rule which we can explain to you if necessary.
Will I have to attend a medical? (Personal Injury & Clinical negligence cases only)
Yes, in order to ensure that you receive the correct compensation. The appointment will be with a local independent medical examiner and will be at a time convenient to you.
You do not normally have to come to our offices for your claim to be dealt with as we can deal with your claim by post or telephone. In certain circumstances however we are prepared to come and visit you at your home or work at your convenience.
