Making a personal injury claim
There are an array of health and safety laws and legislation which are there to support those who have been injured through no fault of their own. The panel of experts at Legal Expert have years’ of experiencing in personal injury and can inform clients honestly about the likely outcome of their case.
Even if your accident happened years ago, you may still be entitled to compensation – especially if you have been left with a long-term diagnosis such as muscle or nerve damage. These types of injuries can develop and get worse over time, having a long-lasting impact on your life. You have three years from diagnosis in which to begin a personal injury claim.
To increase the likelihood of winning your Blackheath personal injury case, the Blackheath personal injury solicitors who fight your case need to be able to prove certain things:
- That you were owed a duty of care by the defendant in the case
- The defendant breached that duty of care
- It was due to the breach of care that your injury or illness was sustained
The earlier you begin your personal injury case the better as your solicitor will need to gather all supporting evidence and this can be made harder if the event happened years in the past.
Choosing a personal injury lawyer who is best suited to your case
Receiving a compensation pay out from a personal injury claim can take months, even years in cases where there has been a serious injury or severe illness. Even though all Blackheath personal injury lawyers are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), you may find that service levels and customer experience will vary from firm to firm.
When you take in to account the importance of your personal injury claim, the importance of the compensation you require, and how long you are likely to spend interacting with your solicitor; it is vital that you choose the right lawyer for you and your case.
