Making a personal injury claim
When making a personal injury case, you must show that three specific things apply to your case. Firstly, you need to show that you were entitled to a duty of care and that this was breached. Finally, this breach must have resulted in your pain and suffering in some way.
You will also need to have seen a medical professional for Bradford personal injury solicitors to launch a successful No Win No Fee claim. This is important because the medical report put together by your doctor is the most crucial piece of evidence when determining how much compensation you will get. But our personal injury solicitors for Bradford will help to arrange this for you.
In addition to this, it is worth noting that there is a three-year time limit for personal injury cases. Typically, this is three years from the date of your accident. However, if your injuries have developed over time and you cannot determine a specific accident date, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead. Needless to say, the sooner you claim compensation, the easier it will be, as gathering evidence will be a lot more straightforward.
Choosing the best solicitor in Bradford for your case
At Legal Expert, we will assign you to the best personal injury solicitors in Bradford based on the ins and outs of your case.

Bradford Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
How do I choose a personal injury solicitor?
It’s important to look at all aspects of a law firm before choosing who you want to represent you. A law firm does not need to be physically based near you in order for you to enlist their services.
Reading reviews can assist you in narrowing down who would be the best help in your circumstances. Experience and success rates are good things to research as well.
How much do solicitors take from compensation?
When claiming with No Win No Fee solicitors for Bradford and other areas of the UK, the amount taken from your settlement may vary. However, it is legally capped so that the majority of your compensation remains intact.
Should I accept the first offer of compensation?
The defendant may make an early offer of compensation if they admit liability. However, we recommend seeking legal advice before accepting an offer. Otherwise, you may be missing out on the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
How long does the claims process usually take?
It generally takes between 12 and 18 months for the claim to reach a full resolution. However, every claim is unique, so the time they take can vary a great deal.

If we assess how valid your case is, and it holds up strongly, then our law firm may handle your claim.
What is a Letter Of Claim?
This puts the victim’s intention to claim in writing, with the defendant of the case being the recipient.
When do settlement negotiations begin?
These start after the defendant refuses to accept liability within 28 days of receiving the Letter Of Claim.
How long do negotiations last?
Negotiations could go up to the day of a court trial, though they may also last just a few months.
What is the likelihood of my case going to a trial?
Only around 5% of claims actually end up in court, with the defendant usually hoping to settle before then.
