How to make a personal injury claim
Legislation exists to support people seeking compensation for personal injuries. When you contact us for help and support with your claim, we assess your case carefully, ensuring you have the best chances of success.
To make a claim, you need to do so within three years of the date of your diagnosis. To win your personal injury claim, personal injury solicitors in Middlesbrough will need to demonstrate;
- The defendant owed you duty of care
- This duty of care was broken or breached by the defendant
- This breach led to your injury or illness
Employers have a duty of care to their employees, who also have responsibilities.
When it comes to making a claim, time is of the essence. Beginning your claim sooner will ensure that your personal injury solicitors for Middlesbrough can collect all the valuable information and evidence to form a strong case.

How to choose the right No Win No Fee solicitors in Middlesbrough
Compensation claims can take many months to resolve, even longer in the cases of severe injuries. Getting the right solicitor is essential. Even though solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), service levels can vary.
It is critical not just to the success of your claim to get the right personal injury solicitor, but to your future. But how do you find the right solicitor?
Look for reviews of personal injury solicitors in Middlesbrough
As well as online forums and independent review sites, there is no better way to find your personal injury solicitor than phone them to discuss your potential claim.
Not all law firms offer the same kinds of legal services, so it is important to check. Likewise, there are also disparities in fees and insurance premiums charged by firms. Take time to check the Conditional Fee Agreement or the amount you get to keep from the compensation awarded.
What about the location of the solicitor – does that matter?
A claimant is not restricted to use a law firm local to them. In fact, location is not the only key to success: the level of service offered, and the fee structure should be a priority when selecting Middlesbrough personal injury solicitors.
One element of a claim that can be carried out locally is the medical. There is a network of partnerships across the country of medical experts who are used by reputable law firms to carry out a medical examination of injuries.
No matter where your personal injury solicitor is based, they will arrange for this appointment to be held locally and at your convenience.
