When Am I Eligible To Make A Compensation Claim?
Before you select a personal injury solicitor to process your claim, you need to decide whether you actually have a valid reason to pursue compensation. In general, if you have been harmed in any way by the actions of a third party, you could have a reason to claim compensation. When we say a third party, we mean legal entities such as:
- A private individual.
- A public or privately-owned company.
- A government body such as a health service.
- Your local council.
You are not limited to only claiming for physical injuries caused by an accident, You can claim for any harmful medical condition, and this includes:
- Physical injuries.
- An illness or disease.
- Psychological trauma and damage.
You should also be able to make a claim if you were partially responsible for the incident that caused you harm. However, the third party involved would be less liable to pay compensation. Liability is measured by percentage. For example, if you slipped on a wet floor in a restaurant while checking Facebook on your phone, the restaurant owner might admit 70% liability.
If you are confused over whether you are eligible to make a compensation claim, call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this page. We will take the details of your case, and let you know if we think you have a valid claim.
Why Is It Important I Choose The Best Solicitor For My Claim?
There are two main reasons that you owe it to yourself to find the best personal injury lawyer to process your accident claim for you, and these are:
- The proficiency of your solicitor in processing your claim, will affect the chances of your claim being successful.
- Using a skilled solicitor to process your claim, will could ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Choosing a good solicitor is going to take some work. You will need to vet any solicitor you are considering, to make sure they are suitable. These three questions below will help with this vetting procedure:
- Have you successfully won compensation for a claimant in a case similar to my own in the last year?
- Can you arrange for me to have a free local medical examination, so that I can prove the extent of my injuries/illness?
- Will you work under a Conditional Fee Agreement, and not charge any fee at all unless you are successful in winning me compensation?
Any legal firm that cannot answer each of these questions positively, might not be a good choice for handling your claim. If you simply don’t have enough time to work through the process of vetting legal firms, you can call Legal Expert on the number at the end of the page. One of our team will discuss your options with you, and advise you on the best way to proceed with your claim.
Look At Reviews Of Different Lawyers And Solicitors
As can be seen from the section above, the process of finding a good legal team to handle your claim is going to take some effort. A good way to cut down on the work involved, is to find a website with some good personal injury solicitor reviews. You can use the information in the reviews to compare legal firms, and build a shortlist. Be sure to note the following facts, to compare at a later stage:
- Did the reviewer have a good experience with the legal firm being reviewed?
- Is the review covering a claim that is similar enough to your own to be relevant?
- How old is the review, and is it new enough to still be relevant?
- Did the solicitor offer a claims service based on a Conditional Fee Agreement?
- What percentage of the compensation won did the solicitor take as their fee?
- Did the solicitor provide value added services such as arranging for a free local medical examination?
If you don’t have the time to go through a list of reviews to try and find the best legal firm to handle your claim, Legal Expert can help you. Call us on the number at the bottom of this guide and talk to one of our team. They will be able to discuss all your legal options with you, and help you to get your claim on the right track.
Can I Use A Solicitor From Anywhere In The Country?
Many people wrongly believe that they are under some legal obligation to use a local legal firm. This is simply not true. There is nothing to stop you from using a team of solicitors from anywhere in the UK. Indeed, the location of your legal team is a tertiary consideration at best, as you can use email or the phone to keep in touch with your solicitor no matter where they are.

We do have the ability to arrange for local services, such as a free medical examination, if one is required to process your claim successfully.

Industrial Disease Claims
Your employer in Coventry is expected to provide you with a healthy working environment. This is a legal requirement of all companies that employ staff.

Medical Negligence Claims
Occurrences of clinical negligence are fairly common in both NHS and private hospitals and clinics. Doctors are human after all, and everybody makes mistakes from time to time. However, when a doctor makes a mistake that harms a patient, it can be seen as medical malpractice. A typical case of negligence could be defined as:
- A medical professional had a duty of care towards a patient they were treating or caring for in some way.
- They failed in meeting this duty of care, and this failure was the direct cause of the patient coming to harm.
- The failure in the medical professional’s duty of care was avoidable.
If the statements above fit your own situation, then you may have a valid reason to make a claim. Call Legal Expert on the number at the end of this guide so that we can help you further. You might also like to go over our guide to negligence claims at this link:
