Luton Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee Claims Guide
Have you been injured in an accident that was not your fault? If so, you will be looking to make a compensation claim, and this is something that Legal Expert can assist with. No matter whether you are based in Luton or anywhere else in the UK, we can help you to get the full amount of compensation you deserve. We can also request that your chosen solicitor arranges a local medical if needed.
Making a personal injury claim
When it comes to making a claim for compensation, we will ensure you are assigned to the best Luton personal injury solicitors based on the ins and outs of your case. This will ensure you have the greatest chance of securing the maximum amount of compensation available.
Nevertheless, if you are to be successful, your personal injury solicitors in Luton will need to prove the following three things to be true:
- You were owed a duty of care by the individual responsible for the incident
- This individual breached the duty of care
- The breach resulted in an injury or illness
If the above applies to your case, you should definitely proceed with making a claim. Nonetheless, it is important to recognise that there is a three-year time limit on all personal injury cases, starting from the date of your diagnosis. There are some exceptions to this rule, though, and so the best thing to do is simply claim as soon as possible. You will also find it a lot easier to build a case if you do this, as gathering evidence will be more straightforward and the details will be fresh in your mind.
Selecting the best No Win No Fee lawyer to represent you is crucial
There are many personal injury solicitors in Luton and the rest of the UK, which is why you need to choose with care. While it is true that the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors in the country, this does not mean that all law professionals operate to the same high standards. With that in mind, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is the pivotal first step in any case.
Read reviews of injury lawyers in Luton
When choosing from all of the No Win No Fee solicitors in Luton that are available, it is important to read reviews that have been left by past clients. This can give you a great insight into the service levels provided, as well as the fees charged. A lot of people are shocked to see the disparity with regards to the insurance premiums charged and the level of success fees. For more information on our fees, contact Legal Expert for a quote.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
There is only one part of a compensation claim that ever needs to be handled locally, and this is your medical. Aside from this, you are free to take advantage of any service available to you across the UK. As your lawyer does not need to be local, this means you can use a number of other factors to determine the right professional for you, including the success fee they charge.
What compensation claims do you handle?
If you have been injured while at work, you can make a claim against your employer. There are a number of reasons why your employer could be to blame, for example, lack of training, inadequate risk assessments, and allowing employees to use broken equipment without notification.
